Tuesday newsday

Well, my fellow Canadians, I hope you were able to connect with family and friends this weekend past, and that you gave thanks to whomever you are inclined to thank. I also hope that you spent some time discussing or thinking about what this holiday represents for Indigenous People here especially in a time when politicians use the term Reconciliation as a way to garner votes and praise, but don’t follow through on it. Americans, well, jebus… I don’t even know what to say to you, with your Columbus Day. When I lived in NYC for a good few years, I told friends I found it sort of like their descendants 500 years from now celebrating Hitler Day. This was not what anyone wanted to hear. But I stand by it.
