Sometimes I feel like a dick running this blog.
Because in order for people to pay attention to these issues I not only have to talk about the issues but I have to break down positive stereotypes and myths about how Canada is a utopia and perfect and all that jazz. Sometimes I feel like I’m crashing someones birthday party.
I enjoy the Canadian stereotypes too. They’re funny and help form part of a Canadian identity, but they also shield people from what really goes on in Canada.
I’m not being cynical without just cause. It serves a purpose.
