Racist Canada Needs An Attitude Adjustment

DWE has been saying for a while now that human right is big bucks. Well, here’s what five million of your dollars gets you:

Be kind and say “adjustments,” “adaptations” or “harmonizations,” not “accommodations.”

Be precise and refer to “people of French-Canadian descent,” not “old-stock Quebecers.”

And avoid the racist term “visible minority” and the meaningless catch-all “cultural communities.”

“The main goal of adjustments is to protect minorities against flaws in the laws of the majority, and not the contrary. (The adjustments) guarantee that every person enjoys the same rights,” the commissioners write.

The rest.
