How perfect is this?

He's gonna get a ruling from "the tyranny of nice"...

As Conservative MPs called for the national anthem to return to a rural New Brunswick school's morning rituals, the principal of the school says he is taking the matter to a human rights commission.

In a statement to CTV News Friday, Millett wrote "The only thing I really have to say at this point is that I have contacted the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission and I will be pursuing the question of accommodation around this issue of through the Human Rights Commission and hopefully some clarity will come from the ruling they provide."

"He's going to the HRC, the self same organizations that have been used to kill Canadian Culture? Me thinks they'll give him a medal for banning the National Athem."

I've got a better idea, fire Erik Millett and ban gays and communists from influencing or teaching children.
How about this passge to convince you:
"The difficulty we were having were that children we having physical reactions to the anthem. They would scrunch up their face, put their fingers in their ears, bend down and get on the floor because they felt they were doing something they weren't allowed to do," Erik Millett added.
Yeah right, liar.

Hang on, I wrote to Eric Millet two days ago and asked him to kindly reconsider, his answer was there were two complaints, now its "kids scrunching their faces up" This "failed green candidate" should not have the opportunity to push his agenda on childern, IMHO, his antics, bringing "body bags to a political meeting whilst wearing "a fake bio-hazard suit" are very troubling, perhaps he would be more comfortable with, Imagine" penned by a cretin that contrubited to the IRA.

@ JCKirklan: lots of gay people are sane intelligent folks who love Canada. Don't be a moron with this banning gay people, just because this Millett guy is 100% short of neurons.

I remember singing God Save the Queen every friday at elementary school. I won't sing that anthem now, and don't expect my kids to either. However knowledge of the Canadian national anthem is something all responsible citizens should have so they can at least sing it without messing up the words at a hockey game.

Personally I don't expect anyone to sing an anthem if they don't want to. I still see no reason to remove it from the school. We do have some things to learn from the U.S., their citizens tend to be very patriotic and their respect of the anthem is worthy. That can be a healthy thing if one remembers the old adage that no-one loves his country more than someone who is able to justly criticize it.

jckirlan,

You're an idiot in thinking that banning gays and communists is bad for our children. I understand your "thinking", but these are two hardworking people and there are several gays that I know presonnal who teach, practice medicine, and work for a living.

Funny thing I also have respect for a gentleman who ran for the Communist party in my riding, and he is a very hard working individual who manages my union. I've had beers with the man, and disagree on many issues, but I would never suggest he be removed.

So grow up because that kind of language is what discourages people from liking the CPC (or the old Reformers). And education and politics begins at home, so I doubt very much the teachers political influence on their students.

i think what jckirlan is overlooking, is that, while you can certainly teach someone to be a che-licking socialist... sexual preference appears to be a characteristic that is hard-coded into your very being from birth.

an important distinction.

Unknot your shorts everyone!
I don't care about someone sexuial preference save for pedophiles, I just don't want gay culture, mores and lifestyle being taught to any children.
What does this have to do with this case; nothing, other than the fact that Mr Millett is both Communist and gay.
He seemed to have no problem removing the national anthem from the school. What else is he teaching the children in his school?
He has them so twisted and confused about pride in the nationality now, that they are "having physical reactions to the anthem".
So, yes, call me a moron and all other manner of names because I didn't do the PC thing, but I for one would like an audit of this principal's school. Or we can all just stick our collectuive heads in the sand. Were has that gotten us?

The HRC needs to go. It will be our downfall.

jckirlan said...

And if you think I am wrong for suggesting that he is not teaching his own culture and lifestyle and mores then just look to his own words.

"Millett, who ran as a candidate for the Green Party in the last election, has faced suggestions that his personal views were responsible for the decision."

And to your question Neo;
"agreed... what does anyone's sexual preference have to do with this particular situation?"

Well it appears, everything, as he is running the school according to his personal views and not the culture of the community. If he wants to do this then let him start his own school.

"jckirlan says... running the school according to his personal views and not the culture of the community"

which, it appears, is gonna turn around and bite him on the ass.... bigtime.

how banning gays from anything will improve society... gotta confess... still eludes me.

seems to me... this guy'd be a nutter, whatever team he played for.

Like the ndp, the green party attracts the oddest of idiots.

Millett, will be gone by the end of the school year, and I doubt his contract will be renewed.

This publicity is all good though. It is important for Canadians to associate parties for what they stand for.

eg; Liberals=corruption

Ndp=traitors

Green=nutjobs

Conservative=Patriotic
