As with any other country, Canada has its own historical footnotes, both good and bad, politically and socially correct or not. . . And though we may trash other countries for their flirtations with social constructs which belittle or serve less their constituencies, who engage in "me only" and themes such as neo-fascism and other sordid political references, we are not immune to evil and injustices to our indigenous populations, just because we are Canada.
Le Canada a sa propre histoire, qu'elle soit bonne ou mauvaise, correcte ou pas, démocratique ou pas. . . Et plus on se moque des autres en ce qui concerne les "attouchements" socio-politiques dangereuses et même fascistes, il ne faut pas se flatter, se leurrer - Le mal, incluant les atrocités envers nos peuples autochtones peut autant s'installer en cachette chez nous qu'ailleur.
The story of Rwanda in 1994 is a sordid one - a story which should make the world cringe - but it doesn't. Lt Gen Roméo Dallaire asked for assistance from the world and the world told him in politically correct ways to "go to hell". And he did. And along with the souls of 800,000 people, his was ripped from him also. (Painting completed in 2016)
