To me and millions of Canadians, including our Prime Minister and his father, the canoe is merely a symbol of our country but according to an academic interviewed on CBC Radio, this is a symbol of colonialism that we must “re-think”.
Watch as I share some clips of an interview conducted back in March with Misao Dean, an English Professor at the University of Victoria.
The interview went unnoticed for quite some time until a British academic heard it, shared it and mocked it as the epitome of idiocy. Now the internet can’t stop talking about it.
And no wonder, but I guess this is what spending too much time in a university will do to you.
