Most of you will know that i spend a few months every year in Canada and i constantly heap praise on the way Canadians live and treat each other. Well apparently not everyone over there is as friendly as the folks i’ve met…in fact a recent story doing the rounds on social media involves quite possibly the cruelest and most disgustingly insensitive and offensive letter you will ever see. Police are investigating the one page letter slipped under the door of home in Newcastle, Ontario detailing how unhappy a mother in the neighbourhood is with the 13 year old autistic boy who lives there. The anonymous letter ends off with “Do the right thing and move or euthanize him!!! Either way we are ALL better off!!”
The family of the boy have taken to the media to express their shock.
Here’s a photograph of the letter.
Hope they track down the person who wrote that and out them.
And here’s the mother speaking to City News.
Canada i am disappointed.
I know the person who wrote that is the exception in your beautiful country, but still that is offside hey.
