Racism

Do you want to see racism in action in Canada? This is an Olympic themed ad campaign from Bombadier.

And these are some of the colourful comments from one of Canada’s premier bloggers.

The Song is called Oh Canada, not Oh Kanada. It is sung in either English or French, or both. Those renditions are merely multi-cultural plagiarism wrapped in lefty feel good politically correct nonsense.


I have been finding myself changing the channel every time this crappy commercial comes on. Turns me off, big time. One of the corniest I’ve ever seen. Future Liberal voters?

That commercial represents the future of Canada: Various Third Worlders butchering our anthem in a cacaphony of foreign tongues. Funny that the only white person shown was on a grainy, black and white TV–representing the past.

Hmmm. Even my teen daughter can’t stand to watch that commercial; she said it makes her cringe.

Kate, I surprised you don’t recongnize the citizenship test when you see it. If you can hum the tune for a few bars you are in. Immigration officials are roaming the world, camcorder in hand, to find future citizens.

    What I found racist about the commercial is why would people all over the world be rooting for Canada instead of their own country’s team?

    What’s up with that!

    I guess it’s just a way of showing that everyone everywhere loves Canada.

    In any case, I am sure you can love two countries, equally. Isn’t that akin to being a citizen of the world?
