I Identify As An “Equit”

Canadians are such wooses:

Heard in passing in Ottawa: “They really believe in our national jobs plan, or as I like to call it “Just Trans-ition” for heaven’s sake.  The LGBTQ plus and minus like us, they really really like us and believe in everything we do to screw you. By the way Wilky, you have one week to get your hand off of my ass.”

Trudeau’s latest job action plan:

A Liberal sustainable jobs bill is being criticized for invoking “identity politics” by emphasizing jobs for members of “equity-seeking groups.”

Tabled by Minister of Natural Resources Jonathan Wilkinson (shown above), Bill C-50 would support the federal government’s efforts to increase job growth in the green energy sector

However, the bill appears to prioritize certain groups over others.

“A sustainable jobs approach should be inclusive and address barriers to employment with an emphasis on encouraging the creation of employment opportunities for groups underrepresented in the labour market, including women, persons with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, Black and other racialized individuals, 2SLGBTQI+ and other equity-seeking groups,” the bill says.

In other words straight, anglo, whitey need not apply.

Canada is probably the most discriminatory nation on the planet.

Equity is at the root of all of our problems. Why can’t everyone be equal, and not equit (sic), under the law of the land.

By the way, if you were born here in Canada then by the very definition of Indigenous, other than the Canadian version of a dictionary, you are an indigenous person.

From here on in I now identify as an equit.

This song was well ahead of its time.

Dedicated to Trudeau’s vision of Canada.
