The owner of an Ottawa martial arts dojo has lost her franchise rights following revelations that her school-teacher’s certificate was revoked last year after the Ontario College of Teachers ruled she had emotionally and sexually abused a student.

Douvris Martial Arts issued a statement to parents this week notifying them that it has severed its relationship with Carmel Rouhani of the Barrhaven Douvris Martial Arts franchise.

“Information has arisen which Ms. Rouhani failed to disclose at the beginning of her relationship with Douvris Martial Arts, and therefore, we are terminating our relationship with Ms. Rouhani,” the statement said. “Further, she has been advised not to have contact directly or indirectly with Douvris Martial Arts students. Martial Arts classes at the Barrhaven location are currently being taught by other Douvris instructors.”

Rouhani, 29, earned a bronze medal at the 2014 World Karate and Kickboxing Commission World Championships. She purchased the Barrhaven franchise in 2014.

Repeated messages seeking her comment Tuesday and Wednesday were not returned.

Immigration Watch Canada petition: Tell Canada’s politicians to cut our immigration intake

Tell Canada's politicians to cut our immigration intake.

Tell Canada’s politicians to cut our immigration intake.

If you believe that Canada admits too many immigrants, you’re not alone. Polls show that about half of your fellow citizens, including immigrants, feel that Canada admits too many immigrants.

Since 1991 Canada has admitted about 250,000 newcomers to the country each year, and some want to increase that level to 500,000! Yet no regard is given to the economic, environmental, social and cultural impacts that current immigration levels are having on Canada.

Whenever I hear that the new federal Liberal government is preparing to undo a policy or law put in place by its Tory predecessors under Stephen Harper, I remember Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s boast on the day he and his cabinet were sworn in. Finally, he gloated, “we have our country back.”

Culture Wars: The Battle For The Soul Of Canada

The recent election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ushered in not only a new era of politics within Canada, but more broadly speaking, a new era within Canadian society as a whole. Interestingly, the roots of this era began with another Prime Minister by the name of Trudeau—Justin’s father, Pierre.

In basic terms, it was former Liberal Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau who brought into existence the post-modern era of multicultural Canada. At the time, few Canadians appeared to object— not that they had any choice in the matter. Simply put, Trudeau Sr. made a decision on behalf of all Canadians  to eradicate our nation’s bi-cultural English and French identity, and replace it with what he termed “multiculturalism within a bi-lingual framework.”

A succession of Liberal and Conservative governments would follow, all of which fully endorsed Multicultural policy— including its mandate to deliver hundreds of millions in tax dollars each year to third world-oriented immigration and multicultural organizations. It was over the next several decades— with the helping hand of leading journalists and media outlets— that the diversity ethos permeated our social consciousness to the degree that it became fully sacrosanct within Canadian society.

It would not be until the election of Stephen Harper’s Conservative government in 2006 that this virulent brand of political correctness began to be questioned. Much of this was precipitated by a rise in a variety of contentious issues related to Islamic law— for example, a lady who insisted on covering her face with a “niqab” during her citizenship ceremony. Additional public discontent was also stirred up through the senseless murder of Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the hands of an Islamic fundamentalist.
