Hi Joe

Complete leftwing BS. The left always condemn as racist those that don't agree with them. It is their most common tactic.


From: Glen Harewood

Dear Joe:

I'.ve read, and re-read the cited article by A. Mitrovica.

I strongly disagree with him that "Canada is not what You Think It Is, " that it is an unwelcoming haven from the bile and divisiveness of  the age of Donald Trump.

Mitrovica's post is, in my opinion, a valid rant against the former Harper Conservative  9-year governance, and many of  the thoughts and actions of SOME of those in his caucus and cabinet -- especially many of those caucus members from the Alberta. I do not know that I would put Michael Chong, for example, one of the 14  contestants for the conservative Leadership, in the same "boat of fear-mongering" as  Dr. K. Leitch. 

Mitrovica makes a valid point when he observes that our parliamentarians wasted no time in passing a bill to condemn "Jewishphobia", as opposed to the present hesitancy by the opposition Conservatives and some Press, to condemn outrightly Islamophobia.

We live, however, in a world where race phobias, ethnic phobias, as well as religious phobias have, and will always exist, albeit latent in the proletariat, as well as among those who lead and govern us. Witness the recently  the racial sleight by an 85+ year-old school trustee in the Vaughn, Ontario, area who resigned her trusteeship, only after persistent public pressure.

What is most paradoxical is that, with the exception of our indigenous peoples, ALL those who trumpet Islamophobia are themselves, or their ancestors,  at one time or another, are/were all immigrants to Canada.

Canada, and Canadians will never be blameless for harbouring pockets of hated and prejudice  of one group or another. I  hear/see it and have experienced it in my immediate surroundings. One still finds it in government bureaucracies, police, Court, systems, private organizations, and in our neighbourhoods.   There is, however, no valid reason to suggest or spread the cautionary fear that Mitrovica is suggesting, to those who seek to move North, from the real and blatant trump-phobia that now seems to be raising its ugly head in some parts of the USA.

That's one of the reasons I sent you that measuring Instrument to measures the index of "SOCIABILITY". One could even apply the index to oneself.

Glenn Harewood
