Over the past six months, we here at the Rebel have broken stories of Syrian refugees bullying Canadian children in our publicly funded schools. Our investigations have been based on documents obtained through Access of Information Requests and, in some cases, interviews with parents, students, and school staff.
Today we're reporting on Canada’s West coast: in Langley, British Columbia.
Some of the details we unearthed in the nearly three hundred pages we acquired from Langley School District are even more shocking than any of the scandals we have broken to date. Scroll down to read them all.
One staff member laments the change in classroom environment:
“Our Syrian Refugees have been at our school for three days and have caused great turmoil (...) This is a major safety concern. (…) We have had to reassign a couple of our teaching assistants away from our students with autism, just to manage our new Refugees, we cannot sustain this.”
Email exchanges from Langley School District tell a story of Syrian students becoming “too physical” with the other kids.
A common thread found throughout those roughly three hundred pages is the idea of “cultural bullying” and “cultural behaviour”:
“This family is Syriac Orthodox -- not Muslim, and it has come up in our conversations… they say ‘the Muslims hate us.’ Many of their neighbors were killed by Muslims.”
Several documents The Rebel obtained indicate migrant students are being removed from school, during school hours, to attend mosque with their fathers. I wonder if those Syriac Christian students I mentioned earlier get January sixth and seventh off to celebrate their Christmas, let alone random afternoons, so they can head to head to church with their dads.
I want to leave you with just one last bit of information from this particular Access to Information Request:
Evidence that Canada’s Federal Government is NOT doing a thorough job when vetting and processing these migrants. WATCH to learn the details.
If you or your child is being bullied at school without recourse and school officials are too afraid to speak up, contact us at Tips@therebel.media. We’ll check the facts. And, if it's true, we’ll share your story.
