School trips cancelled over terrorism fears

A school board in western Canada has cancelled all international trips planned for its students citing the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and California. High schools across Canada often organize trips abroad for their students and encourage fundraisers to help pay for them. This is regarded as a good educational experience.

But the Edmonton Catholic School District has informed staff that 20 trips that had been planned for this school year have been cancelled due to safety concerns. The Calgary Catholic School District has cancelled its trips as well but did not refer to terrorism in announcing its decision.

    Will they instead send them all to volunteer at local mosques so they can demonstrate solidarity with “the Muslims”?

    • Likely.

      It they didn’t, they’d surely be racists.

      Edmonton very likely. Its a very left leaning city. Calgary not as much but it now has a hugecand aggresive muslim population.

        Not to mention their Muslim Mayor. Calgary is being subjugated from the inside out.

    Considering the rotten job being done by many education professionals, funding to enable higher quality year round schooling should be the top priority. Sending the most deserving marxist baby sitters on free long trips to parts unknown where theIr religion is most devoutly practiced would also benefit everyone.

    I’m sure it has nothing to do with islam.

      This is what I don’t understand. If we are to believe our media elite and social superiors about multiculturalism, what’s the worry?

      All my Lefty teacher pals have no issue with Islam and yet they cancelled their trips to Paris too … and still have no issue with Islam, its growth and presence, because their Leftism forbids it, as it does with most issues that could be solved with a severe application of common sense.

    No fair !The muslim students get to fly overseas, and they get to experiment with ISIS! Surely a sharia approved trip can be organized for infidel children?

  • BillyHW

    Another victory for Muslim immigration.

    As reality slowly dawns on the progressives, their apologist narrative takes one more step towards collapse. Too bad we have a brand new government which is about 20 years behind the times.

      To my view, The Idiot PM of Canada is ten years down the path of our Islamic distopia. He can’t wait to show the nation how thoroughly he can devalue the meaning of Canadian citizenship.

      • Oracle9

        Falling all over himself, with his advisers and inner circle of socialists, to create a multicultural welfare utopia and thereby squander the freedoms which our forefathers fought and died for.

        Even the Americans are starting to wake up. Not us Canadians, sadly.

    This is one of those moments when the light should go on upstairs for some of these people.

  • Canadian

    Don`t despair.
    No reason to go to Europe, the Son-of-The-Other will soon fix it so that you can enjoy the excitement of fearing for your life right in your own small town.
    Imagine all that money saved.
