VICTORIA - More than 20 students at a Vancouver Island middle school were suspended for a day after shocked teachers received complaints they were kicking redheads.
The students, boys and girls in Grades 6, 7 and 8 at Journey Middle School in Sooke, B.C., were sent home Thursday after taking part in "National Kick a Ginger Day," an online campaign, started on Facebook by a 14-year-old Courtenay youth.
That youth is now under investigation by Comox Valley RCMP.
