Developing an Anti-WAYCISM Policy for Canada

A reader from north of the border sends this message:

I would love it if you and your readers would promote the following the link on behalf of your Canadian readership:

Online poll and survey — Anti-racism engagement

The Canadian government is soliciting input on developing anti-racism policy, and of course responses are usually weighted toward the liberal side of the political spectrum.

The government is starting off with flawed concepts and flawed statistical assumptions, but it would really help to include a better representative cross-section of society if some of your regular Canadian readers see this and fill out the poll.

Hear that, homies? Everyone in the Frozen North should take the survey and give the federal government their thoughts on cultural enrichment, WAYCISM, badthink, and similar topics.

In my opinion, however, you would be well-advised to mask your IP address first. Otherwise, you may find the RCMP a-knock-knock-knockin’ at your door…

  1. O, Canada! Our family lived there in 1953-6, when I was a boy, and when my sister and I were in a pub in Cornwall, where she’s lived for many years, we found we could still sing the first verse and chorus. Our parents went a second time in 1969-79, and one of our (younger) brothers is still in Vancouver. He’s relatively sane- introduced me to Pat Condell, which led me to Jihad Watch and “Gates”.

    Trouble is, Canadians are so “nice”, maybe like the Swedes and others, and I retain a great affection for them and their country. Excuse this self-indulgence; hopefully some genuine Canucks will have some more relevant comments.

    • IMHO, Canadians are so very nice because they have no rebellious DNA. During the American War of Independence, Loyalists (loyal to Britain) were permitted to leave; most went north. That is the foundational layer of Canada – British Canada, at any rate.

      Robertson Davies, one of the best of Canadian writers (Stephen Leacock being another), knew his Canadian history and its Loyalist fundament. Just as New York City and environs remain Dutch from their beginning as New Amsterdam, so with Canada and her Loyalists.

      Here is Murther and Walking Spirits, one of his stranger hybrids:

      Davies drew a compelling picture of the flight from the Hudson Valley up to the tundras of Toronto.

      [BTW, Canucks would be of French origin. That’s a whole ‘nother breed.)

      • Canadians in general seem to call themselves “Canucks”?

        Robertson Davies is wonderful; thanks to my family connections, I read him before he was much known in the UK.
