Editor: Your minister of education and English Language School Board should be ashamed of themselves. I have been diligently following the Bluefield High and Brooklyn Mavis story through this fiasco and have found that our local drug dealers have more accountability.
Cynthia Fleet was asked for an explanation as to why this 15-year-old girl received a letter from Bluefield High telling her she was no longer welcome on your Island. Fleet was also asked why her office, when confronted with allegations of discrimination, issued a letter to Brooklyn with outrageous stipulations like staying in a hotel room alone or an apology letter from her mom.
Cynthia’s boss was asked in the legislature, on both of these points, as well. The only release from either office answered none of these questions and only pointed out the obvious that after all this, Brooklyn no longer wanted to come to P.E.I. (She was likely afraid of being burned at the stake).
It appears to me that there is some antiquated thinking at the highest levels in your province. We as Canadians gave you that Island and this right came with some pretty simple obligations and accountability is number one. So gather your pitchforks and light the torches. These people need to be outted for who they really are as I am certain they do not accurately represent the good people we know you Islanders truly to be.
