Quote of the week:

“Nobody deserves what happened out there,” the longtime Republican said. “There’s no justification for it. There’s crazy people in the world — we know that … We have to minimize that kind of stuff….” Caitlin Jenner

Second quote of the week:

“If things are good in moderation then they must be great in excess!”

Read today:

Our Governor General got a blasting today on social media about comments he made about indigenous peoples being immigrants…like us all.

Solution? Ban social media.

My comments:

“We’re all immigrants. Even the indigenous peoples, who arrived here about 10,000 years ago. It’s all relative.

I’m tired of it all. Residential schools – the gift that just keeps on giving. When will this self immolation ever end. Canada just can’t get its collective shit together. I know for a fact that not all residential schools were bad. But that doesn’t fit the First Nation narrative.

What about all of the white Catholic boys and girls who were physically and emotionally abused as youngsters in these Catholic private elementary and high schools in the 50’s and 60’s? Me being one of them. Where is our Truth and Reconciliation, our compensation?

What about African Canadians in Africville and Preston NS? Or the Chinese Head tax, or the Japanese internment during WW2, or the treatment of the Indian migrants, or the Jewish Refugees in the late 1930s, and on and on it goes. It’s all whitey’s fault.

BTW, as a Caucasian I now put myself down as a visible minority in this country.

Why can’t the indigenous peoples embrace Canada for what it is and become equal members of this society? Until such time as we stop this racial segregation and treat everyone equally, there is no hope for the future of this country. Especially in our big cities – cesspools of intolerance, hate and violence.”
