Pierre Trudeau, in outlining his vision for Canada, wrote: “The Just Society will be one in which the rights of minorities will be safe from the whims of intolerant majorities.” It is with this narrative that the Canadian left has achieved great success at the ballot box. Liberals will claim that Muslims, women, homosexuals, Aboriginals and other minorities are oppressed by the intolerant white Christian majority.
According to the left, poverty and the rest of society’s problems are directly caused by racism, sexism, homophobia, or some other form of discrimination. Liberals push this narrative to portray their opposition as bigots who condone injustice. Since the left controls Canada’s educational institutions, who better to push this propaganda to than unsuspecting schoolchildren?
