Concerned Victoria, BC mother...

Pulls young child from primary school... after discovering heinous conspiracy...

The school choir sings Christmas carols and students are learning arithmetic by counting Christmas stockings, she said.

"We found out that it was everywhere. I got the parent newsletter for December and Christmas was in everything."

"I don't think any of them were too traumatized, it's like they knew they were Jewish or something."

I don't think any of them were too traumatized, it's like they knew they were Jewish or something. Imagine that.

I expect her child will feel much more comfortable when Hannukah gets equal time with Christmas, Kwaanza, and Eid. Especially Eid.

Perhaps she can petition CAIR to take her case to the Human Rights Commission.

Stupid woman.

Last month she was wringing her hands at a meeting of the school district up there in Cowichan Valley and moaning about an imagined threat that her property taxes might get jacked up in order to keep the school alive, so it could be there’s more to this story than her totally absurd complaint about the school’s insensitivity to her Jewish faith. Just thought I’d mention that before you folks plunge full steam ahead with the tiresome “War on Christmas” meme that’s deployed with head-banging predictability around this time of the year to advance your “liberals-R-stooopid” ideological agenda.

Agreed, red tory. This is probably a person with some personal and psychiatric issues. But sometimes the crazies are the worst of all, because they don't let go... they just bang away endlessly at a a perceived problem or injustice and make a huge mess of things.

I can imagine the wasted stress and effort of the school board, teachers, other parents, etc that this looney is causing.

I worked for the Ontario government years ago, and we weren't really aloud to to ANYTHING resembling Christmas, officially. Everything was "Winter Celebration", or "Holiday" this and that.

But the staff (as INDIVIDUALS, you must understand), bought and paid for CHRISTMAS decorations, including a CHRISTMAS tree (our offices weren't usually accessed by the public...).

And one memorable year, the caroling was led by an agnostic (me), a Jew and a couple of secular Hindus.

Off-key, but fun...
