Canada is a Two Spirited Nation

goes a Quebec poem about The English and French

while to the indigenous, two spirited means LGBTQ.

Canada has British Common Law and the Napoleonic Code

so marriage equality is the federal law that connects the provinces

Dear people who want to fight over how to talk, instead of talking about what is valid or needful: seriously?
Image result for Trudeau Meme
Trudeau is completely bilingual, and while what he did was genuinely distressing to the individuals,
but the groups experience was to validate that exclusion, to show that divide in Canada in sharp releif
meanwhile the Conservative Party leadership, most only do speak English, the few considered bilingual are barely so and they have 2 who can speak French
When the Harper Government first took office, their first actions were:
1. removed equality from the Status of Women and reduce them from 17 offices to 5, de-funding women’s community centers across the country
2. ended the Charter Challenge Program, owing it the Official Languages being fulfilled and because it had been used by the LGBTQ community to gain rights equality and the Transgender along with the Atheist community would be using it next.
Their second term, they ended environmental regulations and much more.
Canada has some thinking and talking to do, not just about how to communicate, but what
then, actions have to follow.

    That was interesting…

    …once many years ago The Longship Company actually sent our longship up there to the Frozen North… I’ve dived in the St Lawrence (boat boys were cute)(kinda like that Trudeau guy), and dining in Prescott was a historical experience. Also the World’s Fair when I was a kid in the 60s.

    Hope those Harpers left already…
