One hundred-and- fifty-four Canadian soldiers have died in Afghanistan, not just for the big things such as fighting international terrorists, but for the small things, too.
Like the right of Afghan girls to go to school. Simple things, like the right to listen to music. These things were actually banned under the Taliban, which enforced sharia law.
So what would our soldiers think of Winnipeg's Louis Riel School Division, where a dozen Muslim immigrant families have demanded changes to the curriculum to accommodate their fundamentalist view of Islam? The families don't want boys and girls in the same classes, such as physical education.Because, like himself said, :music could lead to dancing and who knows where it could go from there... " Kids might have to go out of the city limits to have their prom, and there would be glitter, and corsages. Oh the horror.....
Sorry, absolutely couldn't resist continuing the Footloose theme.
