As The Rebel has been reporting since the beginning, the story started last weekend when the Halifax Chronicle-Herald ran a shocking news story that Syrian migrant kids in elementary school were beating up Canadian kids. The newspaper even said they heard from four different people about the story.
In journalism, four different sources is an impressive number. But then, as we told you, the paper changed their story online — then took it down entirely and replaced with a note.
The note didn’t say the story was false, though, just that more work needed to be done on the story. But it’s been four days now, and we don’t have more facts from the paper.
The Chronicle-Herald also says the parents who made the initial reports of abuse are afraid of retaliation if they go public, and who can blame them? This story has unleashed a vitriolic torrent -- not from any Muslims that I can see, however, but from liberal journalists and the school board.
This reminds me of what happened in Rotherham, UK, for a decade. In Rotherham, a city just a bit smaller than Halifax, Muslim rape gangs exploited 1,400 British girls while schools, social workers, police and the media looked away, for fear of being called racist.
(PS: I’ll compare this story with one the CBC ran just yesterday, about a Muslim woman, one that fits the Media Party’s narrative a lot better — but after I show it to you, ask yourself: Which story is more believable…?)
Faith Goldy has been in Halifax investigating this story, and will air her report on Thursday. I can’t wait to watch it. I just want to know what's going on, don't you?
NEXT: The Edmonton Sun's Lorne Gunter explains that Notley's approach to pipelines and energy was never going to work - and now, we have proof.
LATER: Conservative MP Alex Nuttall comes on to talk about protecting the so-called “sharing economy,” such as Uber and AirBnB.
FINALLY: Your letters to me, good and bad!
