REVEALED: Alberta NDP helped school board bully Christian academy

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


All week long, I've been bringing you our exclusive investigation into the Battle River School Division (BRSD) in their dispute with Cornerstone Christian Academy in central Alberta.

BRSD tried censor portions of the Bible that Cornerstone Christian Academy wanted to include in their student handbook and in the classroom.

It became a mess, with the school board trying to force gag orders on the the school, wanting to reprimand a pastor for speaking out, calling the cops over the hurt feeling of their board chair and playing favourites with the media.

Tonight, I’ll show you more emails between Alberta Education and BRDS, showing that the Alberta NDP government itself was helping BRSD in the background, giving them talking points to defend their attack on religious freedom and free expression.

It’s yet another one of the NDP’s crackdowns on any schools that diverge from the progressive government's playbook.

They're forcing conformity and calling it diversity.

I’m having none of it, and neither is my guest:

Donna Trimble from Parents for Choice in Education joins me to warn about what the NDP has planned next for Alberta parents.

More ostentatious bullying by the NDP and their blatant discrimination towards those who disagree with them. Can we set up religious safe alliances within the legislature and other political grounds?

Revelation 22:19

And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

Wow!
Donna Trimble sure had a whole lot to say…I was rapt the whole 40 minutes.
Great interview technique SHEILA GUNN REID
I tried to take notes but it was too engrossing, all I wrote down was – and funny enough, as it turns out – “…on behalf of diversity what we’re getting is enforced conformity…”

- Socialists hate Christians & will use the power of the state against them whenever they get power. To socialists the people are a commodity & that includes the children – they are the property of the state to use as they see fit. Cue the social engineering.

First, I again have to give high praise to Ms. G-R’s interview style. Ask a question and let the guest answer at length, without interruption. Only getting involved to ask another question or direct back to topic. I learn more out of these interviews than most other interviews.

Second, a list of thoughts that randomly occurred as the interview progressed:

- There was the comment that the powers that be believed they were doing teachers a favour by removing their need for professional judgement or autonomy. Basically this means that professional accountability is also removed, meaning teaching can no longer be considered a professional occupation and should be compensated accordingly…reduction in salary and benefits.

- Added to that is the education system is now seeing the boomer and GenX teachers retiring or leaving the occupation, meaning their places are being filled by millennials. Millennials can seldom be accused of being accountable or responsible.

- In a Catholic School, one would think that a practising Catholic teacher, if they are concerned about parental reaction, would approach the Priest. Call me crazy, but I think that is one of the reasons priests make themselves available in the school. Also the reason that Catholic schools kick the butts of public schools academically and in sports; a sense of community exists. Of course, a Priest’s involvement is the last thing our regressive socialist minister would want, just like he does not want parental involvement.

- The one elephant that was not discussed is the ATA, which is a subsidiary of the New Demoncratic Party. It is opposed to homeschooling and independent schools because the teachers in independent schools are not members of the ATA, as, obviously, home school parents are not. The ATA is the main driver of a single public system with no choice, because it does not want competition which would show the inadequacies of its membership. It is the same reason the ATA is opposed to a merit system in the teaching occupation, it caters to the lowest denominator teacher such that the stereotypical 9 to 3:30 teacher is paid the same as a true teacher who is an 8 to 5 teacher then gets involved with extra-curricular activities. Sadly, these true teachers eventually start to wonder why they are putting the extra time in, and we start to see fewer of them. Socialism at its purest.

- My bet is that Eggen and the other “teachers” in the NDP caucus were the 9 to 3:30 type of teacher, certainly not the hard working type.

Why should we be surprised when Marxists behave like Marxists and implement their regressive dangerous policies?
School boards across the country aren’t filled with socialists and progressives, they are filled with Marxists.
School boards are local and if you follow Tip O’Neill’s maxim that all politics is local , we had better start electing conservatives to these boards. If I’m not mistaken, our dearly beloved Premiere Wynne launched her diabolical political career as a school trustee . Municipal elections matter and we need to pay more attention to the people we elect at these levels of government.

Furthermore… This is classic family farm country so I’m guessing not too many voters support the NDP… But is this another case of the NDP lefties in Edmonton interfering on behalf of their school board “farm team”?…

I must admit I’m a bit puzzled after doing some minor research about the BRSD… I gather it is centred in Camrose and that there were school board trustee elections just last week?… And If I gather correctly only one board position was vacant?… “Skori” was re-elected by “acclimation”?… The local paper is the Camrose Canadian?… Did anything about this intrusion into a private Christian school get any “news play”???… Time to move this one out from behind the “paywall” Sheila…

This kind of government interference makes me want to cry. They are after your children Canada.
Tammie, agreed, “Legalizing secrecy is not acceptable”.
Enforced conformity is not diversity, right on Donna Trimble! This is, as you say, just another excuse the government is using to strip parents of their choice and right. If anything, this secrecy will potentially endanger kids not protect them. I really hope there will be a huge uprising. I wonder what will have to happen first for parents to stand up and say no? What’s it going to take?

Great interview Sheila. Thank heaven for people like Donna Trimble!

Love how the left says no man can have an opinion on abortion since they do not have a Uterus , but childless liberals can tell you what to do with your kids.

Not surprising- seeing as that Egan is such a shameless heathen! & he’s too stupid to pull his panties down to see what gender he mite be. The NDPiggers are the most successful political party at making themselves the most hated people in Alberta. Hope they find a hole to hide in when Jason Kenny takes them to task for ruining Alberta.

Take the kids out of the Schools and refuse to pay the school taxes.

This is the level of Stalinist indoctrination that is at work in Alberta.

Notley will stop at nothing to impose her worldview on every place – public and private – Alberta.

This is clear proof of not only extreme narcissism but also a level of dementia seen only in North Korea’s Dear Leader.

In time, there will be purges and the insanity grows to a fever pitch.

And as Alberta approaches the next election, you will see Notley’s heavily medicated go on a rampage that will echo the Stalinist pogroms, as she attempts to smear and destroy anyone who opposes her.

The next election will be divisive and violent.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Great interview, great lady!! The thing is though, is that you can’t work with ppl like Egan because he has an agenda and he intends to stick to it. The best way to deal with ppl like him is to wait til they do something illegal – which they ALWAYS do – then charge them and get them out of the system all together. Anything less won’t suffice!

Leftists want to raise your children. After all, you might not be a leftist. If they can fill their heads full of globalism, climate change hysteria, gender mania, “diversity is the greatest” and the government needs to regulate, regulate, regulate, when they are young, they have a better chance of undermining conservative values and principles. Leftists in power are adults who never grew up and who refuse to believe things have to die to become food (including vegetables). They think farting can be remediated and corrected “for the good of all”. Question anyone who wants to do anything for the good of all (Except Jesus). The government should never play God like the Leftist / Communist governments throughout history have tried to do.

Sheila, excellent interview with Donna Trimble. I hope more parents join and support Parents for Choice.
Legalizing secrecy is not acceptable; the NDP government has to immediately cease efforts to drive a wedge between parents and children. Egan is the hammer, Notley the sickle. Two very sick individuals who are making policies and legislation that will cause harm to children.
