Harlem Shake kerfuffle at Regina school
REGINA - A high school student council president in Regina has lost his position in a kerfuffle that started with a viral video dance.
Members of the senior class at Michael A. Riffel Catholic High School wanted to make a 30-second video of themselves doing the Harlem Shake.
But the school turned down their request, citing safety reasons.
Student council president Scott Woloshin then went on a local radio show to complain and shortly thereafter, Woloshin was suspended from his position.
Woloshin's friend, Ashton Duda, says Woloshin did nothing wrong and the suspension is extreme.
A spokesman with the Regina Catholic School Division says talking to the media is not grounds for suspension, but he couldn't say why Woloshin lost his council position.
Woloshin didn't want to comment because he fears he's already on thin ice with the school.
But in a Twitter post dated March 2, he wrote: "Our whole lives we've been told to question authority and injustice.. But if you question THE authority, you get suspended."
