After “re-branding” the Red Ensign, Dominion Day and O’ Canada, what part of our history is in the gun sites of progressives championing political correctness? Canada’s Coat of Arms, of course.
In an Ottawa Citizen piece entitled “Canada’s Coat of Arms needs an overhaul now”, Philip Stern argues that the symbols that embody the Canadian Coat of Arms must be “re-imagined”, as they say in the comic-book business.
The current version, almost a century old, is apparently not inclusive enough.
And hey, if you don’t ascribe to that new-age “diversity is our strength” chestnut, then you’re obviously a white supremacist or racist or an imperialist or a colonialist or something really bad.
Watch as I point out the problem areas (according to Stern) and offer what I think are some reasonable compromises, free of charge.
As you’ll see, I’ve either created a masterpiece, or a cultural appropriation Frankenstein.
Let the whining begin...
