This past Friday, Tahlia Speaks broke the story of a prank gone wrong inside Richview Collegiate Institute, a Toronto area school. Although many people appreciated the fact that I broke the story, many didn’t (as you can read in the comments section of the original story). I took a lot of heat for shedding light on what many just called “a dumb prank”, a “english project”, and “rival school sabotage letter”. I was called ignorant, retarded, dumb, black girl gone mad, etc. However, I don’t regret my decision to further investigate the letter at all. Now, it looks as if someone has finally taken notice! William Wolfe-Wylie of Canada.com sent the email below thanking me for “bringing light to this”. Thank you for all that read my posts, shared, and commented. I am going to leave this issue alone as it has been emotionally draining (believe it or not I received racist emails targeting me and my blog). I trust that the Toronto Police Department and RCI will see to it that whomever wrote the letter will be held accountable for their actions.

I wrote this today to follow up on your blog posts. Thanks for bringing light to this.
