This week, in a series of videos, I’ve been sharing details surrounding a story we’ve uncovered out of Fredericton High School in New Brunswick.
After receiving a tip -- alleging Syrian migrant men in their twenties are attending a Canadian school, hitting on fourteen-year old girls, and demonstrating aggression towards their younger male peers -- we filed a freedom of information request.
We received over 2700 pages of teacher email interactions, student surveys, and relevant staff materials from Fredericton High School.
WATCH as I reveal the story so far, in the words of teachers themselves.
As part of my investigation, I also reached out to the principal at Fredericton High, along with the vice principal, and the name that came up the most on the emails — the head of international Students at the school. I’ll show you what happened when I tried to call her.
I also contacted the Liberal MP for Fredericton. He never got back to me.
It’s been four days since we first aired our story. We’ve begged our friends in the mainstream media to school us before tonight’s show. These are organizations with hundreds, if not thousands of employees — many, with resources right there on the ground in Fredericton.
As of this evening, not a single Canadian media organization picked up our story.
We did make international headlines though. Outlets in the US picked up our story, it even made the country’s biggest news aggregator, Drudge Report. That’s because the news about migrant hell being unleashed in a north American school IS a story.
Even if the Canadian media refuse to acknowledge it.
As we await Fredericton High School’s NEXT batch of documents — which they’ve promised us —my only question is this: without media coverage and political attention, how much worse will life get for the students inside the walls of this Canadian school before something gets done?
And will other schools suffer the same fate?
