They are from a school in Coquitlam, what can you expect?


I went to this school and I agree. Such a stupid school, a majority of the teachers and principal are all like this. Trying to teach what they believe is "right".

No ones forcing these women to work at the strip club.

And what's the idea of a couple of Coquitlam councillors taking up the cause to get a business in an outside jurisdiction shut down? It's a good thing municipalities didn't have their own military forces, otherwise Coquitlam may just become the USA of the Lower Mainland, forcing a "regime change" in New Westminster.

Anyways, I hope this article stays in archive and remind me to vote against these idiots when the next civic election comes around.

I'm not so sure if this jackass teacher leading the campaign is so ideologically driven anymore. Does he have any daughters? Maybe he just doesn't want them working there one day.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

I think part of the problem today is people want to know and control what everyone does. If what their doing isn't hurting you, then mind your own business!

As George Carlin once observed about the anti-abortion protesters:

Why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn't want to **** in the first place, huh?

Can't remember the exact quotes from the video but oh man it was good when they showed the two sides having a face to face.

Club: Why are you trying to take our jobs?

Student: But we're not!

Club: You're trying to shut down our workplace, and you want us to get job counseling!

Student: Well yeah but ummmmmmmm



So good.

Here is the video report of the protest where the uninformed kiddies are challenged by the exotic dancers:
http://bc.ctvnews.ca...women-1.1121690

And a report from CTV BC:

A strip club in New Westminster has become the target of a grade 12 social justice class from Coquitlam, who see it as an objectification of women.


Students from the Dr. Charles Best Secondary class are protesting the Paramount Gentleman’s Club on Columbia Street that’s been in operation for 20 years.


“We believe the Paramount is supporting this sexualized society, and we don’t like that,” said secondary school student Adam MacDonald.


On Saturday, the students were gathering signatures outside the club calling for its closure, but workers at the club were fighting back and staging a protest of their own. Workers say the students didn’t consider those that would be put out of a job if the club were to close.


“I’d like them to understand that we employ a lot of beautiful, intelligent women, who are empowered to make their own decisions about their bodies and about their path in life,” said Paramount dancer Ashley Pitts.


MacDonald said the point wasn’t to target this particular club or take away their jobs, but to spread the larger message.


“We don’t want to take away these people’s jobs, we know they need to make a living somehow,” he said. “We just want to get the awareness out there, that this is objectifying women.”


The manager of the Paramount said the students should have tried to contact the club before trying to close them down.


The Paramount has a business license which makes them legally able to operate for the next five years.

http://bc.ctvnews.ca...0#ixzz2IYfmOr8Z

And why should it be shut down? According to teacher Ken Ipe this is teaching students to "think objectively"????-

"[The clubs are] controlled by, in a lot of cases, organized crime," he said. "There are safety issues in these clubs. And [the women who work there] can convince themselves, but I think perhaps they're a little naive on the process. We're hoping that our campaign will shed light on that."


One too many episodes of The Sopranos viewed perhaps?

Here is the written report from Global News BC

There were Grade 12 students from Charles Best Secondary School in Coquitlam on one side of the street, and employees both past and present from The Paramount in New Westminster on the other side of the street.


Both were trying to raise awareness about a petition started by a social justice class at the school - to shut down


The Paramount because it objectifies women.


"We just don't think it's right, and someone has to do something about it, so that's what we're going to do," said one student.


For employees of The Paramount, which has been open for two decades, they say they support what the students are doing, but feel they need to be more informed of all the issues.


"We support what you are doing but maybe next time have a bit more information before you guys start saying things," said a manager. "But definitely we support freedom of speech."


"These girls are intelligent women who are making a choice for themselves that should not be taken away," said Ashley Pit, an employee of The Paramount.


Another employee said this movement affects their entire industry, not just The Paramount, and another movement has been started online to show support for the club.


"We're not the evils in this world," she said.


The biggest issue appears to be the fact that the school and the students did not contact the club before starting the petition.


Owner Steven Mountford, who has not spoken to Global BC on camera, told us no one contacted him to learn more about his business or his side of the story.


In a message posted on our Facebook page, it reads:


"I am still waiting to speak with anyone from the school or Selina Robinson (City of Coquitlam councillor) regarding this issue. My question still remains “why has this teacher not contacted me or anyone from my club? I find him using his influence in position of athority [sic] and power as a teacher to push an agenda without opening a discussion and talking about this subject very disturbing?"


But for teacher Ken Ipe, he said his students are very informed about all the issues.


"We want to challenge our students to think about this in an objective way," he said. "Well the criticism is, people say 'be informed'. Well we've done our due diligence here that's for sure."


"We know the issues."


So what are the issues?


"[The clubs are] controlled by, in a lot of cases, organized crime," he said. "There are safety issues in these clubs.


And [the women who work there] can convince themselves, but I think perhaps they're a little naive on the process. We're hoping that our campaign will shed light on that."

How can he stand up there and say they've done their 'due diligence' and not have even spoken to anyone who works there? Nice try but no ceeegar there, Ken. You can't be 'informed' unless you've taken the time to look at BOTH sides of the situation. And clearly, you haven't.

It's pretty obvious he's pushing an agenda instead of teaching his students that there are more sides and ramifications to a situation than just the one he's pushing.

"Due diligence" is a term he heard that sounded good - obviously he does not have the faintest clue what it means. and what the process entails.

They need to find something to do other than preventing consenting adults from doing what they choose to do.

I have to wonder if some these dudes are doing this as a pathetic attempt to get laid by pretending to be a gentleman.


Something tells me these dudes probably aren't interested in women.

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".
