|Fredericton, New Brunswick|
This is a "small" story or set of stories from Canada's Rebel Media. There is no terrorist attack, murder or rape. The centerpiece is the claim that two Syrian migrant boys sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Canadian girl at a high school dance. The assault was not designated a "crime," nor is it likely that it ever will be.
It was a tragic and horrific experience for the victim, who is now apparently undergoing counseling.
But in itself, it is a small story.
But in itself, it is a small story.
The larger story is how "migrants" are impacting daily life for thousands of ordinary Canadians - in this case, high school students in New Brunswick's capital city of Fredericton. And as The Rebel has suggested, these experiences can be multiplied across Canada.
The Rebel designates the story as an "Exclusive." The Toronto Sun did run a short article last year that covered some of the same general ground.
I'm taking the liberty of reprinting most of the text. Please consider going to the original source for other linked reports in The Rebel's ongoing investigation into sexual harassment abuse and assault by Syrian migrant students. In addition, the original story includes a video report that features an audio interview with the girl's mother.
A fourteen-year-old Canadian girl has been sexually assaulted by a Syrian migrant.
It was supposed to be a night of innocent fun and giddy excitement — her first high school dance — but for one girl at New Brunswick’s Fredericton High School, the night would go on to haunt her well after the last song was played.
The young girl’s mother (who asked that she and her daughter have their identities protected) reached out to TheRebel.Media.
She told us that her daughter was approached by two Syrian migrants who are enrolled at the Canadian high school. Both attempted to grind with the fourteen-year-old girl before one of the migrant students came up behind her, and aggressively touched her — her body and her breasts — before forcing his hand down her pants, touching her vagina from inside her underwear.
Through emails and a recorded phone interview, the Fredericton mother told me that, at first, Fredericton High School belittled reports of the sex assault against her daughter, and was told to consider things from the Syrian migrant’s perspective — to consider how western girls’ clothing has the potential to create cultural tension.
The girl’s mother informed me that the the police were aware of the sex assault and that she had hoped to press charges; however, following a questionable interaction between the young girl and one detective, there is now no sign that charges will be pressed.
According to the girl’s mother, the Syrian migrant student was suspended for just one week and is now back at school — with her daughter. Meantime, the 14-year-old girl has missed several weeks worth of school and is now seeing a mental health professional to help her cope with the trauma.
And it would seem this young girl isn't alone. Her mother told me that there have been complaints from other girls, too. More reports of “Syrian boys groping and touching girls’ breasts and trying to touch girls’ vaginas at previous school dances.”
She also told me that the much older Syrian students at FHS are permitted to attend school dances, which she describes as “unfair to the younger students.” But, for reasons unclear to her, the issues — despite being well known — are not being reported.
Now, Rebel Media sought to verify the sex assault allegations before presenting this young girl’s story to you. And so, we followed up with the school. We filed an access to information request. We informed Fredricton High School of our tip and asked that they provide any information regarding the alleged sexual assault in question.
We received shy of one dozen pages of email transactions between teachers and school administrators, all of which authenticated our source’s story.
Over the course of the past eight months, I have presented a dozen reports, based on over three thousand pages of documents, covering five different Canadian provinces on the topic of Syrian students abusing their peers.
In our ongoing investigation into allegations of abuse and sexual harassment perpetrated by Syrian migrant students on Canadian children, these stories out of FHS were some of the most disturbing. Some two-thousand and seven hundred pages of email transactions between teachers, administrators, and school board members painted a picture of ongoing physical abuse and sexual harassment within their walls:
Syrian men in their twenties enrolled in the high school, successfully hitting on the much younger girls; requests for gender segregation and prayer spaces; expressions of excitement over the Brussels bombings and hobbies that included rocket propelled grenades.
It’s happening. There’s evidence, evidence that we here at TheRebel.Media have made publicly available. Every page of every Access to Information request we’ve filed is posted in full on our website.
And yet, there is a country-wide cone of silence on the subject.
