FUREY: Let’s stop kidding ourselves that the Karen Wang incident is anything new

Back during the 2014 Toronto mayoral race, candidate Olivia Chow – the former city councillor, MP and widow of Jack Layton – was asked during an online Q&A about what made her different from a previous mayor.

“I’m not male. Not white. Want to start there?” Chow wrote in response.

Those exact words made it into the headlines of at least two stories in major publications. But the set-up of those pieces was muted, confused, as if the authors weren’t sure how to frame the discussion for their readers.


I don’t think Karen Wang is racist, Olivia Chowcescu is another matter entirely, a hateful leftist who rose to prominence on a white man’s coattails of privilege!

Justin Trudeau is likely the most racist PM of the post war era. The Liberal brand under his purported ‘leadership’ is ‘identity politics’. Trudeau’s Liberal Party has weaponized ‘diversity’ and ‘multiculturalism’ using them as bludgeons to accuse others of the very thing they are guilty of – racism – Pure Alinsky.  But all parties in Canada are guilty of pandering to ethnic vote blocs. All are guilty of contributing to the bad immigration policy that has balkanized our society. All have made honest debate on the subject of mass immigration impossible as dissent is immediately branded ‘racist’. We need to take back our country. The likes of Justin will surely sell us to the highest bidder.
