Alberta is lousy with those assholes. They tend to be the most self-centered, selfish people I have ever met. Of course none of them are volunteering to give up their government funded socialist healthcare though.

At least they'll say "sorry" when they load your family into cattle cars for relocation in the north.

There's nothing junior about Canada's history of slavary, any more than the UK's or lots of other countries.  They just have been far less open about discussing it, sort of like the Japanese with their rape camps.

Canadian society has kind of just pretended that they didn't have a horrific slavery program.

Many Canadians are unaware how bad it was, many don't realize how prevalent racism is still there today, and many have no idea how many right-wingers they have, because it's just not discussed openly.

'Systemic silence': Canada's ignored history of slavery

The history of Canadian slavery goes back 400 years, except we're blind to it

Slavery is Canada's best-kept secret

"If we are looking at one of the legacies of slavery in Canada, it made white people white and black people black. And in doing so, it created black inferiority, black subjugation, white supremacy and white hegemony that we are still living with to this day."

Hmmm, let me check my Facebook feed.... yep, checks out.


As someone who grew up on a farm in rural western Canada, I have to begrudgingly admit that the prairie provinces at least have a vocal minority who would easily fit in at your average Trump rally.

The biggest secret about slavery in Canada is that it was widely practiced by the First Nations especially on the west coast.

Mind you, that was mainly to keep the Christians from using the photocopier to make infinite copies of Christian glurge and to make millions of copies of the copyrighted sheet music for Church. Some of them also have little bobble headed Blessed Virgin Mothers on their desks. French Anticlericalism is a wee bit more Catholic, if you catch my drift.

I was seated in a bar in Bogota with some pals, waiting on some other pals.  All of us Colombian except for one English dude.

So the last girl to arrive was an Afro Colombian who kinda looks like the singer Sade. Her name is Alejandra but every calls her Negra because that is her family nickname and in Colombia every tends to have a nickname based on appearance or personality traits.

She came in and we all said "hola negra, que mas negra" and well, she likes be called that, and he momma calls her that.  They call me "gringo paisa" cause I am American and my Colombian family are Paisas(Colombians from the coffee region).  They call my blonde Colombian friend "albina" or "mona" cause she is super white.

So this Canadian chick hears me and the English guy yakking in our respective accents in English and accuses us of being racists because we called this girl negra and we did not stop others from doing it.

Please note she did not berate the Colombians for saying it.

This is the same girl who had wet wipes in her purse to scrub her beer bottle down and her drink glass because she felt Colombians were not clean enough to touch something she was going to ingest.

Yes and no; there are definitely pockets of Canada that are America cargo-cults; they just like to pick and choose the things they like in Canada, and most just assume conservatives won't tough *their* healthcare, only the healthcare of *those people*.

TLDR they latch onto the easy differences to understand and that's how Canada at least pretends to be okay with minorities, where in the US you can say the quiet part loud and still no be drummed out of public life.

Alberta is backward for sure. It's the only place in Canada that I saw a confederate flag for sale in a booth in a Wal-Mart parking lot. That said, it is foolish to think it is confined to that province. The success of the Ford brothers in Ontario politics should give concern as to the underlying sentiments of the populace. Most of the hatred that I've heard is geared towards the indigenous people and Muslims. One of my wife's high school friends came through while on vacation and they were Mormons and good lord would her husband not shut the F up about Muslims. You could see the quiverfull/they will not replace us in his eyes. Creepy bastard, and not smart enough to come up with any of it on his own.

And then there is this...

It's not wrong.  Last year I visited Northern Ireland, and I saw a literal MAGA sign posted on a street corner near a banner supporting "Soldier F" (the only British soldier thus far to face criminal charges over the Bloody Sunday massacre).

While Canada, Northern Ireland, and other countries each have their own unique flavors of right-wing extremism, the ubiquity of American media (especially media coverage of Trump's words and actions) often results in separate right-wing movements adopting very similar American-style imagery.

You say this crap nearly every Canada thread.  I've lived in Alberta my entire life, and you have no idea what you are talking about.

Alberta can be broken up into basically 5 things: Edmonton, Calgary, Oilpatch, Rural, and The Parks.

Edmonton is fairly progressive.  Most of the people there would fit in fine anywhere else in Canada.

Calgary is fairly right wing and full of VERY entitled people.  Imagine a city full of Karens, that's Calgary.

The Oilpatch is full of rednecks, many of them ignorant of anything.  They totally buy the kool-aid of "Blame the libs" for anything and everything.  Many of these people were imported from Ontario and the Maritimes.

Rural Alberta is admittedly pretty racist and backward.  But so is rural anywhere.  I've been to places in Ontario and Quebec that rival rural Alberta.

The Parks (where I live) are full of people that are as left as anyone in BC.

There are of course exceptions to all of these.  Drive an hour north of Toronto, and you'll see the same BS as you see in rural Alberta.

I know a guy who when this whole pandemic started got his credit card, mortgage, and loan payments suspended, then he went out and bought 2 top of the line, brand new quads. He was struggling to keep up with his payments before all this went down. There are a whole lot of 'berta boys who are not smart and horrible with money.

I'm not part of the problem simply because I don't agree that less than 6% of the posts made in an online forum makes Canadians the most active in the world.

Again, what is the breakdown of the other 94%?

Without that full breakdown this is just pulling numbers out of your ass.
