A principal losing his principles:

A New Brunswick principal who eliminated O Canada at the start or the school day says he is considering his future in teaching.

A euphemistic understatement from one whose extravagant politically correct imprudence has severely limited his teaching career choices in our home and native land.

What a twerp.

A New Brunswick principal who eliminated O Canada at the start or the school day says he is considering his future in teaching.

In an interview with CBC-TV, Erik Millett says his decision to stop the anthem at the start of the school day was taken out of context.

“I received probably over 2,000 emails, most of them hurling abuse at me, saying everything that I should be at the end of a bayonet, I should be shipped out of the country, I should be put on the front lines with the Taliban,” he said in a broadcast interview with CBC today.

“I bore a very heavy price for something that I think was very, very misrepresented in the media.”

Millett could not be reached for additional comment.

The principal of Belleisle Elementary School in Springfield, near Saint John, has said he stopped the anthem after receiving complaints from two parents who objected to it on religious grounds.

Yes the Canadian national anthem mentions God: get over it.
