Re: “Why I choose not to celebrate Canada Day

As a long-practicing and still learning non-indigenous ally born to this country to parents from Northern Ireland, I totally agree with every single one of Ms. Atencio's sentiments in this article. I will waver toward being more proud of this country when treaties are respected, when there are no more MMIW, and when reparations for past racist atrocities (i.e., Africville) are paid in full to every survivor's satisfaction. Until then I refuse to buy into this glorified, genocide-ignorant holiday. In fact, wouldn't it be awesome if there was an alternative Canada Day, a small step to remembering the gross past of this country in order to build a better future without the booze and BBQs. Always wanted to do something similar with my other much-maligned holiday, St. Pat's. El Jones provides the perfect place to start thinking about such a holiday. Down with Churchill and the Queen FOR SURE!

BTW: can we stop saying 'our' First Nations, like they belong to Canadians or something. Got to get rid of the 'our' in this way I think.

Re: ““What are they going to do...kick every guy out of fourth year?”

They weren't comparing it to the massacre, just suggesting the fact that this horrendous, violent language was used against women and posted on the same day as the anniversary of when a man used violence against women that reflected the tone of the dentistry student's language. Calm down.
