Muslim terrorism threat nixes school trips to France for Yukon students

Yukon students won’t be traveling to France this year. The Department of Education is suspending field trips to the country because of the threat of terrorism.

Nicole Morgan, associate deputy minister of learning, curriculum and assessment, said France remains off-limits to Yukon students after last spring’s deadly attacks in Paris.

Of course given this is a CBC report you wouldn’t know who posed the threat, Mormons maybe.

    Don’t waste your money and time on Europeans. Stay home and support your neighbors and local businesses.

      I know that Frenchman! His name is Jean-Luc DeGaulle and he’s a waiter from Lille.

        It’s either him or Dirty Pierre. They all look the same to me.

    A school trip to China, India, Japan, or South Korea would be much more enlightening and helpful for all concerned.

    France’s tourism industry is in crisis. Industry analysts are saying that bookings at luxury hotels are down nearly 50%. One can only assume it’s the same for many upscale restos. There must be a lot of unemployed waiters, clerks, cooks and bellhops. As for the taxis drivers…I don’t care. They’re mostly Arabs, and so maybe they’ll learn a lesson.

    Funny how in spite of all of France’s Islamophilia, love of Palestine and Israel bashing, the jihad in France is stronger than ever.
