According to a (deranged, idiotic, and needless to say, leftist) Canadian Professor, canoes are problematic: “Problematic” being a word leftist use to describe completely innocuous things in ways no normal person would in for purpose of Social Justice Virtue Signaling.
According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society.
CBC Radio host Jim Brown then asked a question: “Should we look at the canoe as a non-controversial symbol or should we look at it as a symbol of colonialism?”
To which the academic replied: “Absolutely a symbol of colonialism. It seems to me that this narrative we tell ourselves about the canoe about how canoeing makes us in touch with nature, how canoeing makes us in some way guiltless of the terrible things that the Canadian government and Canadians in general did to First Nations people.”
Consider your virtue signaled, sweetheart.
IDK why we’re picking on Canada today. Oh, yeah, they elected a completely vacuous PC idiot as their leader because he had nice hair.
