Toronto School Board: No longer policing hats-off rule for the anthem

David MenziesMission Specialist

Just in time for the 75th anniversary of D-Day: The ever-progressive Toronto District School Board has stated that beginning in September, students are free to disrespect “O, Canada” by leaving their caps on during the playing of the national anthem. 

Oh, and the wider dress code has been changed, too. Wait until you hear this!

TDSB spokesperson Ryan Bird gave us more information on why the change has been rolled out and updates us on the policy concerning burkas.

Right, so they removed themselves from the fight over hats during O’Canada, by capitulating! Oh that’ll teach them respect for our country!!

Talks about how our government schools are indoctrinating our kids to fit into their new world order. This is serious. Its mass control, starting with our kids.
Good interview.

Andrew: do you need counseling you truly are a lost soul with no direction,cost of fuel is irrelevant to Andrew because he much prefers to buy that bloodstained Saudi oil.See Andrew has been coddled his whole life and that’s why he needs so much government in his life when the rest of us don’t want government intervention period.Andrew is not a free thinker,he has been manipulated by the leftist viewpoint and he demonstrates this time and time again. Andrew you really are a weakling on a losing side of history.

Andrew doesn’t know what values we need to protect. Canadians who have lost touch with what made Canada the great place it used to be, ignoring history, traditions and family are the reason we find ourselves in the chaotic situation we find ourselves today. Not only is the government coming for our children, they are teaching them to disrespect everything and everyone that came before them. We are seeing in our youth today the results of giving our kids over to the nanny state.

Andrew asks, “What values are those that you purport to protect?”

I rest my case. bbubye now. Don’t come and visit."

Ordinarily one would present a case prior to resting it.

Andrew: same old argument from you all the time you sound like a broken record. What do you care if Alberta and Saskatchewan separate it’s none of your damn business. You liberals want it both ways and it’s not going to happen. Enjoy your high gas prices-were at a nice 95 cents a liter here in Alberta.”

I was born in Sask so I would have citizenship anyway.

I don’t buy gas. Its cost is irrelevant.

The fact is that Andrew is a parasite on society,the he/she enjoys a good quality of life because of the hard work and innovation of others and also because of the spin offs and trickle down effects of a successful energy sector. People like Andrew think the country owes them something-haha!! Andrew spouts off about religion being inflicted upon people,but what the he/she doesn’t mention is that these liberals think it’s ok to inflict people with their gay,transgender,pedophilia ideology!! Wonder does Andrew aspire to all the above perversions of society?”

If it was contingent on trickle down from the energy sector, it should have decreased alongside it in the five years since the US-Saudi pissing contest took out Alberta. It has not. Ergo it is not a consequence of said trickle-down.

Nobody’s infliciting gay ideology on you. They have a right to do what they want with their lives, and you have no corresponding right to deny them that. And, much as you have a preferred pronoun, so do they.

" He/she says we are being unpatriotic because we want to retain our values and culture and want to protect our kids and jobs"

Threatening to separate over jobs is indeed unpatriotic, especially given that Alberta’s job woes aren’t so much “woes” as people not willing to get their hands dirty. Have those oilworkers applied at the meatpacking plant in Brooks, or are they still having to bring in TFW because the locals wont’ apply?

What values are those that you purport to protect? I know for a fact you reject inclusiveness, pluralism, and individual freedom as you try to inflict your unscientific religious ideology on everyone else.

“Funny, Andrew who is as anti Canadian as any foreigner”
I am not implying that all foreigners are anti Canadian, just the ones who come here to take and won’t assimilate.

I was a parent in the 80’s. I took my kids out of public school after I spent many days in hallways outside my kids classrooms listening. That’s how ‘laid back’ a parent I was John Wick. Best move I ever made as a parent.(Mark, Wick is not smart enough to be ‘Butt head’).

Wick, you just admitted that Christians tolerate gays. . Gays are more accepted in Canada than any other country in the world. The line is, love the sinner, hate the sin.

Funny, Andrew who is as anti Canadian as any foreigner, says we’re being unpatriotic and anti Canadian for being ticked off that we aren’t allowed to even get the oil out of the ground, let alone export it, but Ottawa still expects to rape our empty pockets. He/she says we are being unpatriotic because we want to retain our values and culture and want to protect our kids and jobs. If the only way to do that is to cut Ottawa off, as well as the leech provinces, then it will happen. Trudeau is the leader of the destruction and breakup of Canada, not us.
BTW, without our resources we will have no country. To save Canada the head of the snake may have to be chopped. We need the exact opposite of what Trudeau is advocating.

John Wick and Andrew Stevenson are a couple of Liberal trolls ignore them and they will crawl back under a rock like most useless Liberals . I think Wick is Butt head .

Andrew if i were jailed in China illegally Canada would do nothing about it, why should i stay with a country like that?

If these same kids do not pay homage to SJW insanity Andrew and the teachers would have a cow.

Funny how the progressives elect a PM who says we have no identity and tells us we are guilty of genocide then they wonder why we want to separate and think we are the ones being ingrates. LMAO!
commented 2019-06-09 16:23:22 -0400
John Wick that is part of the reason we are fed up with other parts of Canada. Why should we respect it when others do not?
commented 2019-06-09 16:21:48 -0400
Andrew Stephenson sorry but oil is not evil, tell your left wing buddies that, and people are fed up with more than just oil, especially when they import the stuff while crapping on ours, so spare me your indignation.
commented 2019-06-09 15:33:23 -0400
Andrew Stephenson we are not the whiners. And not having a job is a serious issue. Now go whine about pronouns.
commented 2019-06-09 15:31:51 -0400
Andrew Stephenson a teacher telling them what they are is not them deciding. Your comment is idiotic.

Andrew Stephenson saying a prayer is bad , but telling them they are not boys or girls is good? Get real."

i would argue they’re parallel phenomena, rather than opposing. The individual determining their identity and beliefs, rather than the government.

Andrew Stephenson maybe when other parts of Canada treat us EQUALLY we may feel different. Tired of being robbed and crapped on. Respect is a 2 way street.”

There are pretty much two things you can guarantee about Alberta.(1) is that they’re going to whine about literally everything. Our average income is over 100k a year, we pay taxes but still net better than anyone else in canada! Woe is us. (2) is that they’d vote for a fencepost were it painted conservative blue. Only exception is if there are several blue fenceposts, they get confused and vote for the NDP, then spend the next four years whining about it (see #1). Eventually ROC just tunes out when the brat of confederation (yes, you’re worse than Quebec at this point) has another tantrum.

Andrew Stephenson how does being pro oil make you anti Canada? I loved Canada when it was actually Canada, i will not care about a country that censors and controls people , that is not life.
"

I’m not saying being pro-oil is inherently anti-Canadian. It’s when you start turning into separatists over oil that you become anti-Canadian. If you’re willing to separate to pander to the energy sector, then you are indeed putting oil before country.

Wick: funny here you are taking a name of a badass movie character and in reality you probably are a sad little human being living in mommy’s basement. Your kind think you can attack Christianity with no consequence,however I find it interesting that people like you with no respect or moral compass never have the guts to slander Islam and its prophet!! You have a big mouth and that’s where it ends,socialist’s are running scared yourself included. Trudeau loves puppets like you.

Hey Johnny peoplekind.. what’s your take on this shit that your boss is throwing around?

https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/06/07/report-islamic-state-terrorist-claims-jihadis-planned-cross-u-s-mexico-border/

Canada’s Global News noted the Trudeau administration is having difficulty obtaining and using intelligence from captured Canadian ISIS recruits because it has been hit with multi-million-dollar lawsuits by detainees held by foreign governments. These judgments against the Canadian government essentially argued that it became complicit in violating the detainees’ civil rights by sending intelligence officers to interview them. The ICSVE worried that Canadian security could be missing “valuable information about plots aimed at the West” by failing to interrogate ISIS prisoners.

Andrew Stephenson,

It is ironic given that this site is full of threads where people constantly shit on Canada, talk about how they wish they were American and would happily separate from Canada if given the opportunity – but yes, let’s attack children who don’t show respect for a song that celebrates all that is great about Canada.
