That’s my take away from this story, that and the fact that the school board doesn’t give a crap about what they were handing out during a recent open house. This is a supposedly Catholic school, an all girls school but they are handing out flyers on how to perform oral sex.
Catholic board apologizes for oral sex flyer
SUDBURY, ONT. - Family members are shocked after Grade 7 Catholic school students received oral sex pamphlets meant for 18 year olds.
“My granddaughter is totally not into sex or anything like that. She could not believe that she was handed this in school. And when I saw it — I’m 62 years old — I was upset,” said Carmen James-Poulin, the grandmother of a student at Marymount Academy in Sudbury, Ont.
The explicit flyers were distributed Thursday during an open house at the all-girls Catholic school for students in Grades 7 to 12.
The pamphlet includes a guide on how to perform oral sex on men and women, as well as pros and cons to giving or receiving the act.
Ignore the fact that this is a Catholic school and that the administrators should have a higher standard on these sorts of things – when did it become okay to hand out pamphlets to any school girl telling them the ins and outs of oral sex?
I know that Dalton McGuinty would love to include this sort of material in his planned explicit sex-ed course for all Ontario children but really, this is going too far.
Last night Ezra Levant did a great job pointing to problems in the latest media narrative surround “robocall” super-journo Stephen Maher. Ezra pointed out that the media party quickly rallied around Maher after he was asked to leave a private party at a bar in Ottawa. That morphed into him being booted from a conference.
Today blogger Kathy Shaidle has a piece up at TakiMag about setting the media straight for the average person.
Her solution? The comments section.
“These days there are finally two sides to every news story: the story itself, then all the facts that the commenters show the editor tried to hide. My overall mood has improved immensely since I acquired the habit of reading the news upside down. That is, I first scroll down to see what commenters are saying about this or that ‘explosive revelation’ or ‘growing controversy.’”
Yep, Toronto — or somewhere in the GTA — is going to get a casino.
Not, one suspects, one of those posh, ballgown and tiara types you see in Monte Carlo.
You won’t find James Bond here.
It’ll likely end up a tawdry dump, where patrons sit hour after hour without bathroom breaks, trying to get a windfall at the slots, desperately feeding the rent money into machines in pursuit of their get-rich-quick dream. Read more…
How to fix education: Reward great teachers, fire bad ones
by John Snobelen
Zap — you’re frozen.
Freeze teachers pay and freeze every teacher’s position on the pay grid. That’s the Liberal quick fix for all that is broken in Ontario’s classrooms.
The Liberals would have us believe that freezing teacher pay for two years will pay for all of the expensive, union-friendly programs they have initiated over the last decade.
Fixed caps on class sizes, extra preparation time for elementary school teachers and the ultra-extravagant full-day kindergarten program (FDK) will all be untouched by a government determined to keep peace with the teacher unions at any cost.
They have used class size as a bargaining chip for a generation. Smaller classes equal less “student contacts” and thus less work for teachers. And less work is what the unions are all about. Read more…
