Oh... Say It Ain't So.

"16 students charged in alleged assault of girl": now is that fucked-up or what.

Somewhere on this continent, worse shit happens. It's just that this case happened in - where else? - "the world's safest city that works, eh?"™

The girl, 15, attends James Cardinal McGuigan Catholic Secondary School in the Jane and Finch area of North York. She allegedly endured assaults and harassment for more than a year.

Last week, police charged a 15-year-old boy with sexual assault, criminal harassment, and forcible confinement. A 17-year-old was also charged with sexual assault, assault, forcible confinement, and failure to comply with probation.

On Monday, police laid charges against 14 more students, bring the total number of people charged in the case to 16.
Obviously, there's something very, very wrong with this picture.

Was there a conspiracy to defame this munchkin, or is this a case of a "train" gone horribly wrong?

And not a moment too soon...

This week the provincial government is unveiling a new anti-bullying program. It's designed to make schools safe, and will include a place at every Ontario school where students can go if they are being terrorized.
As someone who had endured quite a bit of bullying as a kid in the public "school" system, this should've been there a long time ago.

But, as we Canadians know... it can't happen here, eh?

Yeah. Right. Next...
