The one thing I disagree with, or perhaps more accurately, would express differently than Mr. Robson who I very much admire, is there is an impression he gives that Canada is such a great place almost as a kind of accident of geography. Of course it is a great place because of the culture of the people who have been dominant here for centuries. What makes a nation a wonderful healthful place or not, has nothing to do with longitude and latitude. It is about the values of the people and the government. More so even than the system of government as people are starting to realize due to changes in Egypt, where a military rule can in fact be much better for human rights than say, oh an Islamic theocracy which it now has, even if the new president hasn’t admitted it out loud since his election.
Back in the day, we used to refer to astonishingly stupid people as “unable to tell the difference between shit and shineola” This of course meant he did not have the most basic ability to discriminate and couldn’t tell excrement from shoe polish. This is what the new left wants for us. So that we can polish our shoes with excrement and feel morally superior doing so even while holding our noses. If allowed to even do that of course.
