It looks like culture shock isn’t just being experienced by those in the European nations welcoming hoards of refugees.Canadians have also been extremely generous in welcoming Syrian refuges, and they too are finding trouble assimilating those they’re welcoming.

Emails between school officials at one Canadian high school reveal the school has been struggling to integrate into the school adult Syrian refugees, who reportedly are bullying and threatening students and teachers, as well as making advances on young teenage girls.
After receiving a tip about Fredericton High School in New Brunswick, Canada — a region that has been aggressively resettling thousands of Syrian refugees — Canadian news organization TheRebel submitted a freedom of information request to the school, asking for any information regarding problems the school might be having with the integration of Syrian immigrants.TheRebel received more than 2,700 documents from the school in response to their request. Because of the sheer number of emails, the organization is breaking the story up into several reports this week on their show “The Hunt” with reporter Faith Goldy.
One email said that 19 and 20-year-old Syrian migrants were aggressively confronting teachers, “particularly when it comes to the girls in the class, and also bullying the others in the class.”
Another email reported that students were offended that the refugees were using sexually explicit language in front of their female classmates.Monday’s report also included one teacher expressing concern about the refugees’ repeated bullying of a Jewish student.
Another email stated that one refugee identified rocket-propelled grenades (RPG’s) as one of his hobbies. A survey of the refugees revealed that just under 20 percent approved of marital rape and forced abortions.The tip that led originally TheRebel to investigate contained a Facebook post from a Fredericton parent saying that refugees as old as 22 “with full beards and better built than the hockey team” are enrolled in the school, where they try “hitting on the 14-15 year old girls of that year, but are being brushed off.”
The parent added that the Syrians “have started on the girls in the year below who they are having success with. It’s really ugly, the Canadian boys are very frustrated but are too scared to speak up (they know how dangerous the ‘you’re a racist’ label will be for the rest of their lives).”
But look at the headlines, and you’ll see nothing but praise for Canada’s refugee resettlement program. You wouldn’t get the impression that there’s been any friction whatsoever. Resettlement costs for Canada are estimated to be at $1.2 billion over the next six years, but for the sake of virtue signaling to the rest of the world, money well spent.
