Trudeau Gender & Rainbow Unicorns
Trudeau government’s needless obsession with gender is exhausting
The last thing the people who run the Service Canada desks, or the rest of us, need or want is more gendered language instruction or social engineering
Trudeau Liberals just tabled Canada’s first full-blown social justice budget
Finance Minister Bill Morneau’s third budget released Tuesday is very much a left-wing document and they’re not even trying to hide the fact. For a supposedly financial document, it’s rife with identity politics — touching upon multiple issues of gender and race.
Prior to the release they were teasing this as the first budget seen through a gender lens. Oh boy, do they deliver on that front.
The word gender appears 358 times. Choose another big issue, say, terrorism — that word doesn’t appear once. It tells you something about priorities.
Federal budget by the numbers: There are 358 references to ‘gender,’ 456 to ‘investing’ money
The government will spend $431.4 million over the next six years to try to fix ongoing problems with its Phoenix pay system
Justin Trudeau and the Dismantling of Canadian Identity
Thus far in his tenure, Trudeau has been far more explicit about what he does not want for Canada than he has been regarding the kind of nation he envisions for our future.
One thing he does not want, as publicly stated shortly after taking office, is a Canada based upon “national identity.” This bold assertion, in effect, tells us Trudeau does not believe in a Canada defined by a national heritage developed over 148 years of history. From Canada’s early pioneer settlers, to our cultural roots as an English and French Canadian society, through to the struggle for an identity independent of American cultural domination — Justin Trudeau has deemed these symbols of our nationhood to be irrelevant.
The politics of 2036, when Canada is as brown as it is white
Opponents of Canada’s wide-open immigration policy have good reason to complain. This country embarked on a massive social experiment in the early 1990s, when the Mulroney government opened the immigration floodgates. That experiment is radically altering the ethnic makeup of the population. Yet that decision was never properly debated. Has the time come for such a debate, or is it too late?
A report this week from Statistics Canada forecasting the country’s demographic makeup in 2036 suggests it’s too late. The transformation of Canada is already far advanced, and continuing. By 2036, the agency predicts, as many as 30 per cent of all residents will not have been born in Canada. Another 20 per cent of the population will be native-born, but with at least one immigrant parent. Since the vast majority of immigrants come from Asian or Pacific nations, within 20 years Canada will likely be as brown as it is white.
