was just listening to Global National and they covered Scheer campaigning in AB.
he was giving this bs nostalgic "back to the good old days" and bring it into the future and 'dream big' speech.
he covered all the "wonderful" things the settlers of Canada did. like build railways and highways....and then he said...'honour those who came before us'.
seemed innocuous to me at first but then it wasn't sitting well. started to think; "wtf is the message here and who is he talking to".
then i realized this is the new phrasing for Harper's 'old stock' Canadians.
so then what is it they're promising to do to 'honour'?
imv it was a pretty fkn racist call to arms. not only was he talking whites have the right, he totally ignored Indigenous peoples as being already here.
it was a pretty weird stump speech at best. wish i would've been listening closer prior to the nostalgic pack.
