I’ve got an incredible story of what looks like a hit job put together by the left-wing trifecta of the mainstream media, the government, and a small socialist blogging site against a Calgary private school.
The StarMetro Edmonton recently reported that a learning resource was being used: a multiple-choice question asking students to identify a positive effect of residential schools. They quoted the founder of the elite Webber Academy, Neil Webber, as saying “We want our teachers to discuss both positive and negative aspects of the issue”, going on to insinuate that Dr. Webber was a vocal proponent of Residential Schools.
Well, folks, the left-wing virtue signalling machine kicked into high gear on Twitter and Facebook, with everyone from NDP MLAs to the Alberta Legislature twitter feed volunteering their hot takes on how evil residential schools are, and how everyone who thinks they were good, like Dr. Webber are equally evil.
This story was just so crazy. It had so many holes that it warranted further investigation - something you won't see anywhere in the mainstream media.
I went to the source. Neil Webber, headmaster and founder of Webber Academy, I wanted to know what the school really thought about residential schools from the horse's mouth. Was this school a victim of fake news?
What I found out will blow your mind. It’s worse than just fake news. It looks like not only is Weber Academy the victim of a mainstream media smear job - surprise surprise - even worse it looks like Webber Academy may have been set up for the smear by the Ministry of Education.
