Why I changed my mind about affirmative action

David MenziesMission Specialist


It takes a big man to say sorry and admit he was wrong, so allow me to offer a sincere mea culpa to all those lefties I used to criticize for supporting affirmative action hiring programs.

But you know what? I was wrong and the progressives were right. 

If you’re wondering what brought about this epiphany, it’s those new statistics indicating that Toronto is now a minority-majority city.

Fully 51.5 per cent of Torontonians are visible minorities, and that means as a honky, I’m now the visible minority.

And so it is that I’ve come to adore the social-engineering hiring initiatives that I once loathed because now I’m the beneficiary!

Remember Torontonians: diversity is our strength!

- With so many leftists playing the victim identity game it’s hard to take a survey that says the majority identify as a visible minority.

Thanks, Karan Singh. That was indeed a depressing read.

Regarding your second post (Future of Canada in 10 years..)

At best Canada will one day resemble Brazil: vast, with resources – and endless socio-economic strife and violence among the ethnic groups. The difference in Canada (unlike Brazil) is that multicult social engineering likes to flood the country to its maximum capacity and beyond. The result is you have a country of strangers. No shared values or culture or bonding, but plenty of loneliness and suspicion. It’s insane. ‘Diversity is our strength’ is total nonsense.

At worst is the fragmentation of Canada as you point out, something I’ve been thinking about for years. Immigrants are moving into their own turf, and if they displace the white population – the only ‘glue’ holding the parts together – things could get ugly. The centuries old English-French divide could become a distant memory, replaced with Chinese, Indian, Black, Islamic megablocks, each going their own way.

In the future China might slowly ally itself with the Lower Mainland. Islam may claim Quebec, and so on. Where do Indigenous Peoples fit into these solitudes? They don’t.

All this to say, multicult ideology necessarily leads to its own demise. It’s doomed to fail; sort of a death gene. The laws of nature take over.

Good luck explaining all this to Jackass Justin. He is forever stuck in his father’s shadow. Yet he runs the show.

What’s really frustrating is that when you point this stuff out to your average citizen, they just stare at you like you’re bonkers, then discreetly suggest that you are r-a-c-i-s-t.

It’s gotten to the point where I wouldn’t object to the US commandeering our government should that be necessary. You know, some outside sanity.

I would still love for some leftie to explain how gender based parts affirmative action can exist when gender is a social construct or part of someones feelings? Andrew please explain.

Karan Singh well said, but it will be lost on Andrew.

Andrew if white people are so bad , why are so many non whites coming to live in white majority countries?

William Elder, I do very well understand the sinister UN plot agenda 21 to cramp in most of the population into urban centers, where it’s easy to manipulate & control them.
However, there’s another angle to this issue that is destroy family run farms & let the agriculture business run by big corporation. This will further exterminate the free spirit & make average canadian complete dependent on govt. & corporations.
commented 2017-11-01 22:16:35 -0400
Karan Singh – I hope you understand that Globalists and leftist bureaucrats/politicians are committed to UN Agenda 21’s plans to depopulate the nation’s rural areas and ware house its population in tightly controlled urban gulags. Read this document – it will help you make sense of not only the contempt globalist politicians have for rural Canada but it will also explain why they are using every tool available to them to make rural living cost prohibitive and devoid of entitled services.

The first leg was established by making energy costs prohibitive to those relying on fossil fuel for transport of produce and materials and increase e-energy for production operations like dairy, poultry and pork. The second stage was to Tax the small farming business at corporate rates and unionize farm labor putting labor costs out of reach. They want you out of there – break the family farm and economically starve rural villages in the process – the rural districts are reserved for their transnational corporate agri buddies.

Thanks to all for concurring with my perspective.
Regarding how consecutive Canadian governments have failed rural Canadians, they flounder on two fronts: One as mentioned earlier; lack of infrastructure & service support, second unable to create jobs which was a result of the first. Without basic infrastructure & incentives no business will be able to survive and that’s the reason in the first place people & businesses pay taxes, i.e. for security & infrastructure. It has also negatively effected the lives of hundred of thousands of native Canadians. If the govt. had not treated them as ‘special case’ and have let them become a part of Canadian fabric their lives would have changed for good forever. They can work as hard as any of us, can live a decent respectful live free of alcoholism like the next fellow but for the special treatment & billions of dollars in money given to their corrupt chiefs they’ve missed the train. I’ve told by several old ranchers, farmers from Alberta, Saskatchewan, & BC how during 50’s & 60’s the natives were more than eager to come & work their farms/ranches, their lives were taking a turn for good before govt. started screwed everything up.
Sadly the trend in Canada with our taxes has been to squander it among politicians/bureaucrats, foreigners & foreign countries.
If our politicians had shown some foresight there would’ve been no need to import almost a million people each year, all under the guise of workers and future tax payers to guarantee our medical & pensions. Which in any case will be squandered on refugees, mohammedan terrorists & politicians themselves before many could avail it.
If we go with the govt. version on immigration, isn’t it modern day form of slavery that we call in people from third world countries to work for us so that could pay for our pensions & other benefits?? Think about it & compare it to the slavery in US during 18th & 19th century, the one these same leftist/liberals are never tired of condemning but want to import millions ‘workers’ to sustain their luxurious lifestyle.
Now, ever than before, we the average Canadians have to take control NO politician is our friend, they work for themselves & Globalists not for Canadians. Canada needs to change its course before it goes the way of Sweden, France, UK & Germany.

ANDREW STEPHENSON commented: “If its’ so bad, why are people leaving the white, rural areas en masse, to move to the diverse cities? Real estate values reflect demand – and Toronto/Vancouver are notable for being very expensive.”

1) People are moving from rural areas to metro cities because subsequent Canadian governments have failed to develop & invest in these rural areas. Infrastructure is crumbling, there are little medical/administrative services available for rural populace.
2) The population in metro cities is growing exponentially because of limitless immigration. It’s a known fact that 95% of newly arrived immigrants tend to stay in metro cities. Not to mention the refugees/illegals, foreign students & TFW, which almost exclusively inhabit our metro cities.
3) All newly newly arrived immigrants from third world countries prefer to stay close to & within their ethnic group, they’ve made their own enclaves in & around major cities.

Contrary to your claim of Canadians moving to big cities because they love to live among newly arrived immigrants from third world countries & want to enjoy their vibrancy, the reality is completely opposite.
If such has been the case then why don’t these liberal (and majority of other politicians & bureaucrats) live among those ethnic enclaves of third world immigrants they pretend to love so much.
The growth of our metro cities is a prime example of the failure of Canada’s multi-cultural policies.
One country, one culture, one language.

Future of Canada in 10 years, as I perceive: A tussle will break between different ethnicities/cultures. Belligerent parties would be: chinese, mohammedans, sikhs, filipinos & african blacks mixed with other races/ethnicity joining or supporting a group depending on their chances of victory. It’ll be a full scale conflict based on race, religion & culture. The most likely outcome: 1) chinese will gain control of the western half of Canada, rich in natural resources & easily accessible to china mainland through sea. 2) The eastern part of Canada will be divided further in to 2 parts, with ontario, NS & south eastern parts of manitoba coming under islamic caliphate rule where as the quebec & the remaining parts of atlantic provinces will be overrun by black africans. Now, regarding the rest of the belligerent groups (including white euro-canadians, although I don’t believe euro-canadians would be fighting for their freedom, rights & country, as they’d already surrendered it 40 years ago): they’ll either be annihilated by vanquishers or would agree to live as second or third class subjects of the new world order. My assumption is based on the fact of Canadian ‘Multicultural’ policy. No other cultural/ethnic group, except white euro-canadians, wants to mix-up & live with any other culture/ethnicity, they haven’t ever & they’ll not. The way canadian politicians (of all stripes) are forcing their multi-culti ideology & policies on new, un-assimilated immigrant groups it’s a perfect recipe for a disaster. Once these diverse immigrant groups gain sufficient political & economic strength, they’ll be at each others throat for domination resulting in fragmentation of Canada.
Without the bonds of nationalism, one language & culture sooner or later a country or society is bound to fracture.

KRISPY LARUE commented: “It’s not just Toronto. I think Vancouver is below 50%. Others to follow.”

In Lower mainland (GVRD) visible minority are 53% of the total population, in some cities like: Richmond, Burnaby, Surrey it’s as high as 70%. In rest of the major cities- Victoria, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George etc.- the demography is changing fast. In some of these cities in lower mainland the whole neighbourhood are composed of visible minority, the change happened in just few years. The community, the stores, the restaurants which represented Euro- Canadian culture has been replaced by Chinese, Filipino or Indian/Punjabi culture. Stores in the area have a look & feeling of chinese/indian shops, their merchandise is for newly arrived ethnic people. Great restaurants are sprouting at every corner but have a good luck in finding one which serves traditional euro-canadian food. Mannerism & politeness (2 salient characteristics of old stock Canadians) have been replaced with rudeness & callousness.
Sometimes I wonder if this is the same Canada I migrated to couple of decades ago, is this the Canada I wanted to live in??
Stores like Sears, Zellers, Bay which once represented the flourishing middle class have closed or being closed fast. In place cheap dollar stores & chinese chain stores (like: MINISO & UNIQLO) are doing brisk business. So are high end brand names like: Omega, Rolex, Louis Vuitton, Nordstorm & Holt Renfrew, which caters exclusively to the nouveau riche chinese customers. Two classes are being created fast in post-modern liberal Canada 1)Poor working class 2) Super rich owner/ruling class.

All knowing Andrew has once again enlightened the masses with an assumption of why people may be moving from rural areas to cities. We must all take All knowing Andrews word for it because……. well……. after all it’s all knowing Andrew.
As the saying goes Andrew, it’s best to say nothing and let people think you’re a fool than opening your mouth and leaving no doubt.

Yes, our wonderful CDN government managed to screw up another valiant effort. Affirmative Action is another way the Lieberal Party can screw the true (white) Canadian. What else is new?

I wouldn’t move to ’Hog Town" is you paid me too. It stinks, the immigrants are ignorant, the traffic is beyond stupid, the prices for anything are ridiculous and decent parking is non existent..

I’ll stick to the country where we don’t have “affirmative action” and all the BS “Turdtown” enjoys.

For now, this is awesome news for those white guys applying for work in Toronto, especially at gov’t offices. Now they can answer the job application form:
Are you a visible minority? YES!

If its’ so bad, why are people leaving the white, rural areas en masse, to move to the diverse cities? Real estate values reflect demand – and Toronto/Vancouver are notable for being very expensive. Brantford? Cheap. Nobody wants to live there.

As it turns out, the paranoia over immigration is pretty baseless once you see it firsthand. “Canadian” isn’t a skin colour.

It’s not just Toronto. I think Vancouver is below 50%. Others to follow.

JT and his government are racist against whites and Christians. Sorry but it’s true. But what do you expect: our Immigration Dept is run by a Somali muslim refugee, who btw knows very little about Canadian history, or how damaging immigration can be. It’s unbelievable.

When whites become a minority in Canada (and sooner than you think), it’s gonna be payback time, just like in South Africa. Mega-narcissist Trudeau is sending us all to Hell.
