Angus Reid poll shows majority of Canadians saying Canada “spends too much time apologizing for residential schools.”
WINNIPEG, MANITOBIA - September 6, 2018 (LSN) A new survey by Angus Reid shows that Canadians are getting fed up with the endless apologies for the past.
57% say that Canada “spends too much time apologizing for residential schools,” while 31% say “the harm from residential schools continues and cannot be ignored.”
Of course, what the poll didn’t mention is that it’s possible to both recognize that residential schools caused harm, and also be fed up with politicians constantly apologizing for it just to get their name in the news.
The poll shows 51% of Canadians support a “national day for truth and reconciliation” statutory holiday, while 53% support a non-statutory “day of remembrance” for truth and reconciliation.
When it comes to the partisan breakdown, 84% of Conservatives say Canada has done enough apologizing, as do 50% of Liberals, and 40% of New Democrats.
The fact that a majority of Canadians say the country does too much apologizing represents a growing backlash to the efforts of those who are trying to destroy Canadian history and subvert Western Civilization. Western Civilization has produced the greatest countries on earth, yet those like Justin Trudeau are trying to denigrate, demonize, and destroy our past by acting as if it’s nothing but “oppression,” despite the fact that Western nations are the least oppressive places in human history.
It seems that more Canadians are starting to wake up to the need to defend our history.
