Re: Families must wait longer for kids (Sept. 5). Within living memory, the so-called experts of church and state, for the good of everyone involved, rounded up aboriginal children who did not fit in and sent them, forcefully, into residential schools.
Objective observers might call these arrangements detention centres. The ensuing fallout has never been fully or satisfactorily resolved.
One has every reason to believe that the experts ever among us are repeating this sorry record with the Mennonite children under discussion. My sympathies are totally with the Mennonite community.
It at least believes in a higher authority, while the experts believe in bullying.
