Hot off the "National Broadcaster" presses

"Portrait of a Haitian woman", by Quebec artist François Malépart de Beaucourt, 1786. The woman portrayed in this painting was a slave owned by the artist and his wife."
Sorry, CBC... this has nothing to do with me or mine. The British Empire outlawed slavery before Canada even became an actual country.

I'm having a hard time feeling guilty about whatever some unknown Quebecois seventh great-grandfather may or may not have done to some woman TWO AND A HALF CENTURIES AGO.

Perhaps you should take this pressing matter up with PM Pierre-Lite... cos' lately he's been a veritable kiss-ass apology machine.

...a couple of centuries...waste
"Back in 1988, when the Sun's Paul Jackson was at the Saskatoon Star Phoenix, he broke a startling story that showed Tommy Douglas, now revered by the CBC as "the greatest Canadian of all time," eagerly recommending the ***"CASTRATION OF HOMOSEXUALS"*** and chronic criminals."
Who's sorry now?

LAST WORD: I blame Canadian slaveowners

Boooorrrinnng!
For the record ladies and gentlemen, roughly 1/3 of the population of our indigenous people at the time of "first contact" were slaves.
It was common practice along with constant warfare.
So how about a big steaming mug of "red guilt"

aboriginals weren't just slave-owners... they were cannibals...

just ask father brebeuf et al... oh, wait...

"To prevent him from speaking more, they cut off his tongue, and both his upper and lower lips. After that, they set themselves to strip the flesh from his legs, thighs, and arms, to the very bone; and then put it to roast before his eyes, in order to eat it."

CBC at its best. No scab on the Canadian psyche is so small that they will not pick at it.

i think they pick those scabs very selectively...

"As a former National Reporter for CBC Television News, I can confirm Brian Lilley’s book is right on the mark. We used to call the executive building on Jarvis St. ‘the Kremlin’ for a good reason; the place was full of leftists."
