...or what Premier Dalton McGuinty refers to as... "a difficulty"...
School officials in southwestern Ontario who called authorities after a four-year-old girl drew a picture of her dad holding a gun shouldn't be condemned for their actions, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday.An opportunity, huh? We should all be so lucky... right Dalton?
"While it may be difficult for this individual — and I can understand that — it's an opportunity to ... engage ourselves in a very important conversation about where do we draw the line in those kinds of things," he said.
The girl's father, Jessie Sansone, was handcuffed, stripsearched and told he was being charged with illegal possession of a firearm.It gets better. His wife gets reeled in and his kids get scooped up by the CAS.
His pregnant wife — at home with their 15-month-old daughter — had to go to the police station while their other three children were interviewed by Family and Children's Services.Now don't you worry... this is simply another example of Dalton & company looking out for your interests.
The cake has to go to Gregg Bereznick, the superintendent of Waterloo Region District School Board.So Dalton... where do we draw the line about arresting and stripsearching innocent citizens?
“We do work hand in hand with the families because we co-parent,” Bereznick told QMI Agency reporter Kris Sims.
Funny, I don’t recall signing any document giving any teacher or school official permission to be the co-parent of any of my children.
Surely not at an innocent conversation with a four year-old child... and a plastic toy gun.
