Lethbridge student suspended for dealing banned Pepsi from locker

A Grade 12 student in Lethbridge, Alta., was suspended last week for dealing Pepsi to fellow students out of his locker.

Keenan Shaw was suspended for two days by Winston Churchill high school for selling the soft drink to students, violating a school policy that only permits diet pop on the premises.

Shaw says he was told the sales violated the nutrition and marketing policies, and that he was operating a business without a licence.  

But compared with what some other students sell at the southern Alberta school, Shaw says, his transgressions were minor.

“I’m not going to name any names, but I know a couple of people selling marijuana, there’s kids selling smokes, there was a kid last year selling meth, as well as a kid selling acid,” said Shaw.

Shaw says he has been told he will be expelled if the pop sales continue.

His mother says she believes the school went a little over the top and that the punishment is too extreme.

  1. How Ironic!!

    ONLY DIET SODA ALLOWED……

    Any REAL doctor will tell you diet soda is full of aspertame,
    which is BUG PESTICIDE…

    They will also tell you….
    if you want to lose weight,
    GET OFF THE DIET PRODUCTS because
    they are proven to make you gain weight…

    SO THIS SCHOOL POLICY ON SODA IS SET UP
    TO MAKE THE KIDS SICK AND UNHEALTHY.

    Its RIDICULOUS!

  2. “Keenan Shaw was suspended for two days by Winston Churchill high school for selling the soft drink to students, violating a school policy that only permits diet pop on the premises.”

    BAHAHAHAHA!!! I’m sorry, but the fact that a school even has a policy that tells students what soft drinks they can and cannot drink is inhumane and insane and sounds like something Bloominidiot would do.

    What is wrong with these parents? Wake up and DO SOMETHING!! I know that soft drinks are unhealthy, but no school or person has a right to punish your kid for what they can and cannot drink. It’s insanity!

  3. “operating a business without a licence” ?????

    since when did anbody need a license to run a business?
    i’v never heard of something so screwed up even in places like north korea!

    1. HAHAHA!! Oh man, I just noticed that. Many people in this world have truly lost it, mentally. I don’t know what else to say.

  4. “His mother says she believes the school went a little over the top and that the punishment is too extreme.”

    Oh gee…really? Ya think? (shaking my head in disbelief) 🙄

  5. I guess they didn’t feel they were arresting enough students for pot and other drugs so now they are arresting them for soft drinks. Wonder when moon pies and Twinkies are going on the controlled substance list?
