Racism At Keswick Ontario High School
UPDATE: (May 5th)
The York Region District School Board has reversed the decision of suspension in this case. The student/victim of the violent racial attack has been fully reinstated. However, charges against him for assault are still pending.
Someone may wish to tell Keswick High School principal, Catherine McGinley, that her heavy handed suspension of the student who stood up to racial bullying and violence in the school, appears to be as offensive as the racial attack itself. (Principal McGinley was ALSO recommending that the victim be expelled by the School Board at their May 13th meeting!)
Someone may also wish to tell Ontario's Attorney General that these charges against the student are as offensive as the racial attack itself.

By the way .. here is Keswick High's 'Anti-bullying' policy!!
Bullying can take the form of physical, verbal, or emotional abuse directly or over communication networks (cyber bullying). At Keswick High School, there is a zero-tolerance policy on bullying which is supported by the York Region District School Board, and the Ministry of Education of Ontario.
You can contact principal McGinley (be polite) at:
