Canada is a relatively good country, but racism is its fatal flaw

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued its final report last week. You can just feel the masses of the disinterested turning off their minds to the whole undertaking.

And so, things will continue as they have for the past 148 years or so, with a vast gulf of uncaring and misunderstanding between those of us who are here by colonial means and those who were here for several millennia before that.

Canada is a relatively good country. But a country, like an individual, can have its reputation and its future undone by a fatal flaw. Racism is our fatal flaw…

    “Canada is a relatively good country”

    Canada would be a better country if Rob O’Flanagan packed up and moved back to Ireland.

    • Maggat

      Hard to comment on such mindless drivel. I agree with you, back to the potatoe ranch O’Flanagan

  • DavidinNorthBurnaby

    What a steaming pile of bovine excrement. Back to the bogs, Paddy. And take your guilt trip with you.

  • dance…dancetotheradio

    Guelph Mercury and that’s all I needed to know.

    • Petrilla

      Not even one comment there, maybe his readers know him well, eh?

  • Petey

    The thing is I genuinely don’t care. I didn’t do anything wrong to them myself personally, and I don’t owe them anything. They’re just parasites on society.

  • Waffle

    Oh, c’mon Robby, Kahn-tineta blew those stereotypes out of the water before you were born. But I guess every columnist has to have his shtick, eh?

    • Alain

      She is a real piece of work. I know all about her personally including her ex husband and other relatives.

      • Waffle

        I have no doubt, but she sure used her looks to play the p.r. game to full advantage.

          Isn’t she the one who when losing an argument would walk up to her opponent and then scar them for life by digging in her nails and raking their faces. Why yes, I believe she is.

          • Alain

            Her ex, who by the way is a Status Mohawk from a different reserve wears the scars to prove it.

      • Petrilla

        I just looked her up Kahn-tineta Horn and she was a big deal in the 70s and no doubt still is in government. Is she involved in this report? I just didn’t get the reference to her. Please explain, one would think she is close to sainthood from wiki.

        • Alain

          In her mind I am sure she is a saint but not elsewhere. Her name is Audrey Horn. Those from her reserve who want to get her going always call her by her birth name and not the made-up name she gave herself. I have no idea if she is involved in this report, but knowing what I do of her she would involve herself if at all possible.

  • Rosenmops

    Yes Canada is horribly racist. It is a terrible, terrible place. Potential immigrants who might not fit in **cough** Muslims**cough** should stay far, far away from this evil place!

    • Petrilla

      I agree, we are so horrible no one wants to come here and some we racists would prefer they don’t. Stay away. Dragons be here.

  • Alain

    The reality is that with all the new Canadians, this old worn out trick doesn’t work.

  • ntt1

    yet another “writer” bleating out his solidarity from the white guilt he has so deeply embraced, If there is to be truth and reconciliation then there must be an assumption of modern responsibilities by natives and an end to the Indian act

  • Edubeat

    But Racism Is Its Fatal Flaw….The bigger the lie the more people beleive it….hopefully not so on BCF

    • Alain

      Yes, but aside from our enemies fewer and fewer are buying it.

  • WalterBannon

    anti-white racism is rampant in all of the west, not just canada

  • Everyone Else

    The “fatal flaw” is indigenous population genetic predisposition to alcoholism. It’s not their fault. It’s not our fault.

    • Alain

      I am not sure to what extent that applies anymore, since the majority of “first nations people’ today carry a lot of white blood. I have known many who could hold their alcohol as well as the Irish or any other.

      • Rosenmops

        In BC most of the natives are pure blooded. Probably true in the prairies too. They definitely have a genetic tendency to alcoholism but as “everyone else” says it is not any body’s fault. It just is .

  • mauser 98

    move to Nigeria

  • just a thought

    The “fatal flaw” of any nation is nearly always allowing it’s leftists to decide what is a fatal flaw, and giving them the means to “fix” it.

    • Petrilla

      Couldn’t agree more.

  • Shebel

    I skin is pretty much White.
    Is it OK if I keep working so that you don’t need to?

  • Petrilla

    Canada is a relatively good country, eh? Name a better one. Methinks this writer has far too much white mans guilt and like the NCAAP white woman who self identifies as black, should be self identifying as Indian or first nation or aboriginal, whatever is the preferred name these days. Sheesh.

  • Clausewitz

    Canada is indeed becoming more and more racist when we let more Islamists into the country.
