#NationalAboriginalDay UPDATE: Liberals amend website to spare Carolyn Bennett further embarrassment

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday I told you about a small but very revealing Twitter spat between NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal MP Carolyn Bennett, about how to correctly refer to Canada's First Nations people.

I also showed you that on its own very website, the Liberal Party violated Bennett's arbitrary "apostrophe" rule, which made her attempt to claim the moral high ground even sillier.

But look: Since then, someone at Liberal headquarters rushed over and corrected their website copy, I guess to try to save Bennett any further embarrassment.

My main point still stands:

Anybody can argue about trivia on Twitter, but that does nothing to fix the real problems faced by the First Nations community.

Clarence Louie calls himself an Indian, rides a bike of the same name, doesn’t wait for the government to lift up his people, and that"s good enough for me.

Noel, sort of like the day that you missed when it was taught to put a space after an apostrophe.

so many people these days have no idea of when an apostrophe is appropriate, anyway,it’s almost like they all missed that day in grade four when advanced punctuation was taught.

Just a bit of sarcasm Rick.

For those of us in the “not politically correct” corner, the only question we have is: Who Cares?

Liberals are the very type of people who feverishly kept on trying to arrange the deck chairs in an orderly fashion, while the Titanic was sinking. They have no idea of what is important. Just listening to the comedic ramblings from little Trudeau is all the evidence one needs to confirm that fact.

Good one Ezra. Will watch for the CBC to include this little nugget on their evening “news” report.
