Toronto Board placates “sensitive” bullies by ending school safety program

David MenziesMission Specialist

The Student Resource Officer program (SRO), places police officers at several problematic Toronto schools with issues ranging from bullying, vandalism, drugs and weapons.

A survey of students and parents found the program was a success, with the majority indicating the presence of a police officer made them feel safer.

Among the small number who find the program inappropriate are the Toronto chapter of Black Lives Matter. For them, this is all about race, which is odd because black kids who want to excel at school are also targeted by wannabe gangbangers.

But because it’s 2017, the tyranny of the minority prevails, so it seems the SRO program will be put out to pasture despite the board’s own numbers indicating it’s a success.

Later this month TDSB trustees will vote on eliminating the program, and given the school board's political bent, I think we know where this is headed.

A program that is successful by the school board’s own admission will likely be axed because the optics just aren’t right.

Our abominable Premiere Kathleen Wynne started her political career as a school trustee in North York North Toronto where she foisted the entire gay lesbian agenda on the children in Toronto.
School Boards are filled with leftists and until we become proactive and start electing conservative common sense people to these boards we will get these radical socialist results.
Harold Hoff has the right idea but we need thousands more to get involved.

Good for you Harold Hoff… Often all it takes is putting a school board “on notice” that their “bum-patting circle” meetings are being monitored by parents. and that parents are ready to go on on open-line radio shows and write letters to the editor, naming names… Confront them!…

!2 years ago, I lived in a BC town where petty crime was bad. They started the Police Program where the cops would meet the boys when school was finished. The boys and the cops would even play basketball together. Three months later small crime was down to nothing.
The only mistake was they ignored the teenage girls; they did things like drive when their license was suspended. Great program.
BLM should be banned in Canada.

Your description of what Levin should have experienced in prison…..at least he would have been busy.

- Why the hell is BLM even in Canada? Oh, right, because Trudeau is Soros puppet & so is BLM.

There are two notable School Boards in Ontario that are engineering toxic environments that will eventually sink them: Peel and Toronto. Parents need to stand up, be vocal, be vigilant, and instruct their children (if old & capable enough) to do the same. We’re in the Hamilton Board (HWDSB) and believe me, they all know me and expect to hear from me if my child reports any indoctrination or other shenanigans at school. One voice is a dissenter … but thousands of voices are a movement. So please use yours.

There have always been bullies in schools but it appears that the problem is worsening. Perhaps separate schools for the new Migrants would help, at least until they learn to be civilized. Alas, this would mean that they would spend the rest of their lives in school.

Another way to see this-“Officers did their jobs properly and responded to All offenders, not just the ones the left does not care for.”
commented 2017-11-20 19:28:23 -0500
If it improves the chances of kids actually learning and not being bullied by some special interest or criminals the left wants to get rid of it, if it hurts kids and lets them be brainwashed by special interests , the left doubles down. Well certain kinds of special interests anyway.
By the way, for all the left wing trolls, this means more lgbt kids will be harrased and bullied , of course you will not care since you are mindless drones.

Thanks for the update and article.

Levin commented, “I would say that putting people in jail is one of the most useless but expensive social policies we have,”

If this were different times, he may have been horsewhipped publicly until he was within a breath of death, only to later die of infection; tar and feathered (usually resulting in death); put in a pillory and assaulted by passersby; left to die of thirst and starvation in a cage; hung by his feet or just pain hung. These options should make Levin happy: no jail and surely less expensive for society.

Did I forget to mention being flayed alive, drawn and quartered, disembowelled, or forced to listen to rap?

The sex education curriculum in Ontario was championed by that evil witch Wynne and her satanic predecessor McGuinty.

Nope.

It will be axed because not enough parents spoke out/took action to save it.

Stephen E:
Here is part of an email I just received from PAFE (Parents As First Educators) sent to me about Benjamin Levin, who was paroled (before his sentence was finished) in January and is now making news again for trolling and spreading his sick evil again.

“According to Michele Mandel from The Toronto Sun, Ben Levin has been commenting on academic articles on online academic forums, and he probably shouldn’t be. Mandel writes: “While his parole conditions state he can’t “possess or access pornography or sexually explicit material in any form or type of media,” he seems to be getting his kicks by reading and commenting on scholarly articles about the dark world in which he once lurked. Levin lists 84 papers of interest with the vast majority dealing with studies around child pornography and pedophiles.”

How is this possible? A man convicted for trolling internet chatrooms, who counseled parents to sexually assault their daughters, who distributed child pornography- how is he still online and still engaging topics of child pornography and pedophilia?

What’s worse? Why do Ontario schools continue to use a sex-ed curriculum “crafted” by a convicted child pornographer? How can anyone justify this? Parents need to wake up! The Wynne/Levin sex-ed has got to go!"

(Here’s the article PAFE is referring to: http://torontosun.com/news/local-news/depraved-world-view-of-ben-levin-continues-on-parole)

Parents and students who want this program to continue, need to coordinate and pressure the TDSB to keep the SRO’s in their schools.
Loudly protest this decision and write to all of the Trustees immediately.

Why the school board is listening to BLM is beyond ridiculous.
commented 2017-11-20 16:33:41 -0500
BTW, parents tried getting the schools to stop teaching the government initiated sex courses and to no effect. BLM isn’t happy and immediately the school board bends to BLM’s whim of the day.

The minister who came up with the sex course is (or was) incarcerated for, oh, something about him and children.

It appears in our schools we no longer have HALL MONITORS. if it were up to me I would appoint responsible upper class members to be hall monitors equipped with stun guns and pepper spray just for their own protection from the trouble makers. It would be nice to have a ROTC program in high schools.
commented 2017-11-20 16:28:20 -0500
But the first instance of trouble in the schools, the school board will complain that the police should have protected the students from violence, and there should have been “community outreach”.
