  • llama66: I take exception to these people. Canada is flawed, absolutely. Were many of our forefathers racist? 100%. Is Canada a "racist failure". The fact that many Canadians were outraged when they heard about the children's graves in Kamloops and when that coward ran that family over in London, proves that despite our origins being at times racist, our future need not continue down that road.

    These people may have thought they did not "belong in those halls", they are needed now, more than ever in the halls of power. Not running ensures the problem persists. Things look bleak now, but as with all things, it will get easier to tackle with time.
  • Scape: These people are still Canadians. We don't need barriers we need common ground. There are going to be bumps on the road and sadly her being carded by security is one of them as they are not accustomed to the wider variety of people out there but we need to be a bigger tent for all.
  • Thanos: Sounds like mental problems:

    Last fall, Qaqqaq took a leave of absence for several months, later explaining she had been suffering from “extreme burnout, depression and anxiety.” She took another two-week leave in April, citing continuing “personal health problems.”

    The second leave came on the heels of a Twitter spat with Labrador Liberal MP Yvonne Jones. Qaqqaq charged that Jones “is not an Inuk” and challenged her to “validate her Inuk-ness.”

    She eventually apologized to Jones.


    Best not to take things at face value, especially when dealing with someone who basically calls other Native MP's "apples" if they piss her off by disagreeing.

    Yes, it's her fault for being so sensitive. :roll:


  • llama66: I don't call it being sensitive, it's playing the victim card and running from a challenge. If you don't belong there why did you run? Oh, that's right! to ensure your constituents had a voice; to bring change to Ottawa. But that seems too hard now, and it's fashionable to bash Canada these days. All they are doing is driving the wedge deeper between everyone.
