*Dysfunctional Family Values*
The obverse of a cultural family dynamic where daughters are treated like
inconvenient sweated labour is a son raised like a pampered prince. Such
indulgence is not likely to deliver up grounded or grateful young men: "A
man was killed Thursday night in southwest Edmonton when he was run over by
a relative outside a home, police say. The two family members had pulled up
to the house, in the swanky *Magrath Heights* area [hereinafter to be known
as a 'run-down' area], in a car when they got into an argument. 'It was
instant. The argument erupted as soon as the one gentleman left the vehicle
and ended when he was struck by the vehicle,' *Insp. Brian Nowlan* of the
Edmonton police said. The 29 year-old driver then got into a 2011 *BMW* and
fled the scene, police said. A neighbour who lives just down the street from
where the confrontation occurred said she stepped out of her house moments
after the man was hit. 'It just didn't seem like it was an accident,' *Tess
Minor* said. The incident happened around 9 p.m. near the intersection of
Massey Way and Massey Landing. Police said they arrested a man in connection
with the case about two hours later near the legislature. Homicide
detectives are investigating. It would be Edmonton's 35th homicide of the
year — the highest in the country." (*CBC*, August 19, 2011)

Neighbours said a multi-generational Sikh family lived in the house. "'For
sure, he ran him over on purpose,' said neighbour *Stephane Beauchemin*,
referring to the victim's son. 'He ran his dad over in the door of his
garage, broke both his legs and I didn't see it, but my wife told me he
actually went, ran over him again.' Beauchemin, a radiation therapist, and
his wife, a nurse in the *ICU*, performed *CPR* on the 59-year-old while the
victim's wife and daughter watched. Despite the efforts, the man died on
scene. ... A relative who asked not to be identified says the father and son
had recently started working together in the family business, which some
sources say was the construction company *MNH Homes*. ... The victim is
identified *as Mohan Heer*." (*CTV*, August 19, 2011)

Edmonton had matched last year's record high number of homicides, 39, by the
end of September – most committed by immigrants!.

Enrichment 101

*Enrichment 101*

"A demonstration outside Toronto's public school board headquarters turned
into an ugly, bitter confrontation [September 17th] between groups on both
sides of the issue. Opponents and advocates of the *Toronto District School
Board'*s controversial policy to allow [Moslem] prayer in the city's
publicly funded, secular school system shouted and viciously taunted one
another across a police line. ... Some of those opposing prayer in school
carried placards denouncing 'gender apartheid' in the school and accusing
the board policy of being 'inconsistent with Canadian policy.' They shouted
into a bullhorn about Allah and suicide bombers as the Canadian anthem was
played. About three metres away, on the other side of the police line
supporters of the policy, many of them young students, tried to shout-down
prayer opponents. 'I am here to support the board for letting us pray in
school,' said *Aayman Karin*, 13. ... Up to 400 Muslim students at *Valley
Park Middle School* ... are allowed to take part in Friday prayers in the
school cafeteria*. Girls sit behind boys during prayers and girls who are
menstruating must sit behind everyone*. Non-Muslims are not allowed into the
cafeteria during prayers." (*QMI Agency*, September 18, 2011)

Shortly after, it was revealed that "a bid to convert a sick room into a
Muslim pray area at a downtown office of the province's top lawmakers has
been nixed by some senior Ontario government officials. A proposal by a
Muslim employee to turn the room used *by Ministry of Attorney
General*employees as an Islamic prayer room was rejected earlier this
according to concerned workers who feared dismissal if their identities were
revealed. [Again, as *Paul Fromm* our editor warned 20 years ago,
multiculturalism will cost us key freedoms, like freedom of speech! The
Ontario government did, however, send out] a memo to employees telling them
to be 'sensitive' to their Muslim co-workers during the month of
*Ramadan,*which was last month, because they would be fasting and
praying from dusk to
dawn. [Actually, it's the reverse -- they fast during the day and can eat
after sunset]. Managers were told to provide Muslims with a safe place to
pray and that they will be using the bathroom more because they have to
clean themselves before they worship." (*C-News*, September 26, 2011) Isn’t
“diversity” fun?

How Bad Do You Have to Be to Lose Your Teaching Certificate in

In 1997, I was fired by the Peel Board of Education, after a 24-year
career as a high school English instructor. Their reasons? My alleged
“contempt and persistent disregard for multiculturalism and
ethnocultural equity” which were “core values” ( not,
apparently, reading, writing, math or computer literacy) of the Board.
My specific final sins were attending and speaking on my own time at a
memorial service in Urbana, Illinois for the late Prof. Revilo Oliver,
an alleged anti-Semite and organizing, again on my own time, off
school property the Second Canadian Free Speech Conference in
Vancouver in March, 1996. I unsuccessfully grieved the firing. Then,
the Board launched a complaint with the Ontario College of Teachers,
which licenses teachers in the province. The hearings staggered on
over several years. The panel that heard my case evinced palpable
hostility to me. They had to be reminded by their own lawyer, when a
scheduling conflict arose, that an Ontario Superior Court had higher
standing and, therefore, precedence in scheduling than they did –
they being merely an administrative tribunal. They stripped me of my
teaching licence, published my name and their reasons. Now, note, I
was not accused of ever having behaved improperly with a student.

In an October, 2007 decision, the Ontario College of Teachers ruled:
“The panel received evidence that Fromm, while employed in Peel,
co-founded and was research director for Citizens for Foreign Aid
Reform (C-FAR) and co-founded the Canadian Association for Free
Expression (CAFE). Both organizations espouse beliefs and values
contrary to the principles of multiculturalism and tolerance.” A
reader will note the Orwellian irony that CAFÉ, dedicated to the
tolerance of freedom of speech, is deemed intolerant. “During a
speech for C-FAR in 1989, Fromm discussed the ‘threat to our rights
and freedoms from multiculturalism.’
Fromm associated with skinhead supporters at a public meeting of the
Toronto Mayor’s Committee on Community and Race Relations;
participated in a Martyrs’ Day Rally sponsored by the Heritage Front
in conjunction with C-FAR; … heckled a native Canadian speaker at
the 1989 Mayor’s Committee meeting with ‘scalp him’; and
attended, organized and spoke at events involving white supremacists
or similar organizations. … Fromm ‘spoke against multiculturalism
and non-white immigration, used racist language in relation to Jews,
Asians and Aboriginal people while participating in public events
involving individuals and organizations with racist views,’ the
panel said in its written decision.”

Recently, the Toronto Star has done a series of investigative reports
on the Ontario College of Teachers’ handling of real teacher
misconduct. The clear implication from their findings is that you can
call a teenage girl a slut and e-mail her your desires to have sex
with her, you’ll still be okay. However, be an immigration critic or
stand up for free speech and you’re declared unfit to teach in
politically correct Ontario.

“If you are a teacher, you can get away with a lot and keep your
job. Toronto high school drama teacher Richard Burdett wrote more than
1,300 intimate, sexually charged instant messages to a female high
school student, including a vivid description of how he had dreamt of
performing oral sex on her. On a Grade 11 and 12 school trip to
England, Burdett also brought four pyjama-clad female students into
his dormitory bedroom and cuddled on his bed with them in an activity
he called ‘spooning.’ Later, telling one of the girls his wife
would be away for most of July, the then 40-year-old Burdett messaged,
‘We can throw a spoonfest if you want.’ … For Burdett’s
breaches of trust, the Toronto District School Board handed him a
30-day unpaid suspension in 2007. Burdett was then transferred out of
his high school and sent to a teaching post at Toronto’s Adult
Education Centre while his case meandered through the teachers’
watchdog system (the Ontario College of Teachers). In February of
2011, Burdett was given a 12-month suspension but told that if he
completed a ‘boundary violation’ course he could be back in class
by September. He is now listed as a member in ‘good standing’ and
is cleared to teach again. (Toronto Star, October 2, 2011)

“Here are some of the people licensed in Ontario to teach your

* A teacher who disciplined students by warning they would ‘spend
time with a pedophile’ and if the behaviour got worse it ‘would be
without vaseline.’
* A high school teacher whose female students said he called them
‘sluts,’ pole dancers, ‘whore’ and commented that tongue studs
were for ‘oral sex.’ …
* A drunk teacher who sexually assaulted a store clerk.
*A teacher who stole money students deposited with her for school
trips to Europe. …
* A teacher who flirted with a Grade 7 girl, sending her what a judge
ruled (though the teacher was acquitted of sexual assault and
exploitation charges) were ‘sexually charged’ text messages
including ‘lots of love’ and ‘can’t stop thinking about you, I
didn’t want you to leave today.’

The identity of scores of bad teachers and dozens more each year is
kept secret by the profession’s watchdog — the Ontario College of
Teachers. That’s because the watchdog — a self-regulatory body
— granted them anonymity after the teacher pleaded guilty or ‘no
contest’ to certain allegations. Typically, the teachers received a
reprimand or short suspension.

In some cases, a summary is published on the watchdog’s website and
in its quarterly newsletter, without the teacher’s name or school.
Some of the cases — particularly those dealing with incompetence —
are never published at all. … When it comes to keeping secret the
names of some offenders, College Registrar Michael Salvatori said it
is done if the teacher had a ‘momentary lapse of judgment.’
Salvatori said that they make the decision in ‘the public
interest.’ Salvatori said College rules prevented him from
commenting on any of the cases.
After the Star raised this and other issues with the College this
summer, it hired respected retired judge Patrick LeSage just before
Labour Day to examine its disciplinary practices. One of LeSage’s
jobs is to “consider whether the College’s communication and
publication practices prior to and following a hearing meet current
standards of transparency.”

To determine how many teachers’ identities are kept secret, the Star
first obtained all published decisions of teacher wrongdoing.

Each year, the Ontario College of Teachers makes a finding of
wrongdoing in about 90 cases. The Star obtained copies of all
decisions that the College makes public on its website or in its
magazine. The College said it publishes these decisions to educate
members and show to the public that it is doing its job of protecting
students. More and more, we found, problem teachers are shielded from
the public. Of the 49 cases published in 2010, 35 did not identify the
teacher. Of the 43 cases published in 2009, 20 did not identify the
teacher. Of the 38 cases published in 2008, 5 did not identify the
teacher.” (Toronto Star, September 29, 2011) They had no compunction
about naming me!

However, the OCT does not like whistleblowers. They are ruthlessly
punished and named: “One teacher the College did identify was a
teacher whose only crime was to break their secrecy rules. James
Black, a teacher and former discipline committee member, was publicly
named by the College and suspended for two years because the College
suspected he leaked information to the media. The committee suspected
(but could not prove) that Black gave information to a CTV reporter in
2006 who was probing the College’s practice of allowing teachers
convicted of sex crimes to be reinstated after their licence was
revoked. The College claims Black leaked information to CTV News about
a teacher convicted of sexual exploitation in 1990, who was jailed 15
months and later sought reinstatement. In 2009, the committee fined
its former member, Black, $1,000, and suspended him for two years. The
College ruled that Black was guilty of a serious ‘breach of
confidentiality’ which ‘may have damaged the professional image
of the College and its members.’ The need for a strong general
deterrent is imperative in this matter.” – Paul Fromm
