Well, it seems half the world is in a tizzy about the Royals, or ex-Royals.
The Queen didn’t take long in giving them a jolly old heave-ho.
I mean, like pregnancy or Brexit, it’s pretty much all or nothing. Being a part time Royal of convenience was pretty much a non-starter.
It is also curious and perhaps telling that the Queen seemed to take all of this more seriously than the allegations of child rape against Prince Andrew.
As 2019 winds down, I guess we should look at the glass as being half-full.
I mean as the “best treated minority in the world,” we have seen more challenging days.
Language wars and lack of opportunity have sent so many of us packing over the years.
But this new bunch of political amateurs we have in Quebec City did their fair share of anglo and minority baiting this year.
Man it’s a tough one because usually anything that comes out from Trump’s mouth is a lie. The Pinocchio president.
But calling our prime minister two-faced just might strike a chord with many Canadians. Calling him black-faced certainly did.
Voters put Trudeau on probation in the election. A short leash. And maybe they should have insisted he not be allowed to leave the country.
There was the Mr Dressup India trip of course.
And before that , the Caribbean vacation with his BFF the Aga Kahn which the ethics commissioner found Trudeau guilty of violating conflict of interest rules.
What’s in a name? Plenty. There must be great care in deciding what to name or rename.
What part of history to highlight.
What part of history to ignore.
The latest naming controversy shows that our mayor is tone deaf and perhaps has a view of history that doesn’t agree with many of her constituents.
I tried this week to get my H.A. card. Historic Anglo that is.
I know it comes with discounts to La Ronde, the Village de Pere Noel and the Zoo de St-Felicien.
I trudged through the snow carrying my report cards from the PSBGM. I didn’t bring grade 9 because honestly that year I bombed in French.
Now the agent at the Centre de Verification des Anglos Historiques was pleasant enough and I thought I was a shoe-in.
In my humble opinion, the CAQ should change its name ever so slightly to the CRAC.
Because they are high on something and they are always looking for the their next fix of minority baiting.
Their agenda is clearly anti-english and anti—immigrant.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see some CAQ hats saying Make Quebec White and French Again.
