Canadians are incredibly generous people, perhaps to a fault.
Indeed, our deference in politeness and accommodating others is both a feature and a flaw of our country.
On the plus side, we are a tolerant, open and free society; the envy of the world.
That’s why so many people want to immigrate to Canada.
Occasionally, however, there are those who seek to abuse our generosity and undermine the values that make Canada great.
Case in point: A high school soccer tournament in Brampton that led to two girls from a Catholic school being sent off at half time, not for aggressive play or poor sportsmanship, but simply because they were girls.
