A Nazi Applauded in Our Federal Parliament —Ignorance Knows No Bounds In This Land
It is abhorrent !
It is a disaster!
And our collective ignorance is on full display.
I am daily reminded of our ignorance about our own Constitution —as the elite and political class abuse and disfigure our Charter of Rights and Freedoms .
But if we know not our own history —-then such shocking international ignorance is tragically to be expected.
We learn little in our schools —history as a subject is gone and civics as a subject does not exist and testing and grading in many of our schools is no more .
We know little and pretend we know a lot.
Just a few months ago an EU MP came to Canada and the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition maligned her .
The PM and the Leader of the Opposition are now trying to hide their ignorance and or prejudice now that there has been some push back.
I have been refused an opportunity to speak in a public school and a public university in this land —the only living first minister who was part of the creation of the Constitution Act 1982, a part of which is The Charter of Rights and Freedoms .
Yet , I witness the applause of the Federal Parliamentarians for A person involved on Hitler’ s side of the Second World War while seeing a democratically elected EU MP maligned ——and at a time when Canadians are before our courts for their legitimate civil disobedience opposing the state’s action for having their rights under the Charter taken away.
When will this madness stop?
All those elected in our House of Commons should be fired!!
I still give grades —-the Parliament of Canada gets an F.
