The Toronto District School Board... solving the world's problems... (witness International Day of Zero-Tolerance on Female Genital Cutting/Mutilation)... one day at a time...
Of course, no matter how worthy the agenda... there's always some tightass, interfering "stick in the mud"... who can't get with the
politburo, er... programme...
TORONTO — While flipping through his six-year-old son’s new student planner Monday night, Jaak Purres was shocked to see some pretty heavy words jump out at him: sex worker, female genital mutilation, Palestinian solidarity.Now, please don't get me wrong here... I'm an anti-mutilation kinda guy, myself. It's just, I'm a little doubtful that the "barely out of diapers" crowd should be your target demographic.
Most of them were plotted on a calendar marking “Days of Significance” — International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers (Dec 17), the International Day of Zero-Tolerance on Female Genital Cutting/Mutilation (Feb. 6).
“It’s just bizarre,” said the outraged dad. “He’s six. I want him to enjoy being six.”Well, Jaak... here's a thought... it ain't Tim Hudak who's been turning Ontario into a unicorn-scented socialist paradise.
Just something to remember when you head for the polls next month.
