A day of infamy recently took place in Richmond Hill, Ontario, when it was suggested that the majority of the town’s city council is... anti-aboriginal.
The Richmond Hill Liberal detailed the emotional March 25th council meeting where we’re told “Residents who packed the council chamber gasped and booed as councillors decided not to start council meetings with an Indigenous land acknowledgement.”
For those who don’t keep up with such fads, acknowledgements are commonplace at the start of events wherever progressives gather and are a way for white virtue-signallers to ask forgiveness for daring to set foot on (what used to be) First Nations territory.
Well, as is often the case with stories like this, there is more to it as I found out by reaching out to councillor Carmine Perrelli.
Not only did Perrelli offer a few pertinent points to explain his opposition but he also said some natives he reached out to also aren’t interested in such acknowledgements, with one man dismissing them as “patronizing,” and noting this movement is being spearheaded by “white people who want to pat themselves on the back.”
So, who on council was supporting this agenda? Would it surprise you to hear the Three Musketeer councillors who support it, are the same ones who opposed a motion three years ago to start council meetings by playing O’ Canada?
