Dr. Shaheen-Hussain has written a on the subject. Fighting for a Hand to Hold: Confronting Medical against Children in Canada (2020, McGill-Queens University Press) shines a light on the decades-long cruel practice of separating children from their families during emergency medevacs from northern and remote regions of Quebec.

Medical colonialism & systematic racism in Canadian health care/medical services is still happening. There's been some progressive changes over time with more awareness. More progressive changes still need to happen.

@msquebanh@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

@Twisted666 I'm trying to get more people to learn more about real life, factual #CanadianHistory & not just the whitewashed colonial versions. Canada has been far from nice or kind to Indigenous, and many other non-white folks. It still has massive systematic racism & bigotry problems to resolve.

This led for 21 yrs.

’s “cheerleading” for ’s regime got a tremendous boost during his tour of landmarks of the “miracle,” as Teigrob recounts in riveting detail. The photographs tell a very chilling story as well, especially one that shows King sitting proudly in Hitler’s seat at the All-German Sports Competitions while surrounded by Nazi bigwigs in full swastika-studded regalia.


@msquebanh@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

"We learn, for example, that King had an abiding fear of Americans, such as President Theodore Roosevelt, wanting to take over Canada; that he felt a kinship to Hitler because of the two leaders’ attachments to their mothers; and that he saw himself on a divine mission, fulfilling the destiny of his rebel grandfather and namesake, William Lyon Mackenzie, in trying to bring Britain and Germany together to avoid war"

The MacLaren book is particularly valuable for its examination of pro #fascist currents in #Canada, one example being the #RomanCatholic church in #Quebec’s support of Italian #dictator Benito #Mussolini because of his recognition of the #Vatican as an independent state & his fervent #AntiCommunism.

@msquebanh@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

#MackenzieKing was #Canada’s longest running #PrimeMinister & he was a #racist #fascist jerk.

Both works, Mackenzie King in the Age of the Dictators, by Roy MacLaren, and Four Days in Hitler’s Germany: Mackenzie King’s Mission to Avert a Second World War, by Robert Teigrob, rely heavily on the King diary. Indeed, without access to the prime minister’s private thoughts, neither book would be as insightful, as cringe-inducing, or, likely, even possible.

And yes, both authors conclude that King was a bona fide , neither of them granting a man of his education and experience a pass for being a product of his , intolerant times. Certainly the most infuriating and tragic aspect of King’s wilful denial of well-documented evil is his attitude towards , which led to ’s refusal to accept significant numbers of refugees from the mounting hell.

@msquebanh@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

Another example is King’s loathing of the collective-security provisions of the #LeagueOfNations, which he thought might ensnare #Canada in a war in some distant land. King’s “muddling” played a critical role in that body’s failure to stand up to #Mussolini and #Hitler, thereby empowering the #fascist duo in their territorial ambitions.

..... he considered friends when he spent a day at the trials in in 1946. ...King, who never failed to inform his Nazi hosts that he was born and raised in the German settlement of Berlin, Ontario (Kitchener), paid a return visit to the old-country Berlin to view the devastation wrought on the capital of the by — the man, King had confided to his diary, whom he believed “might come to be thought of as one of the saviours of the world.”

My cup overflows with anger toward these lying, deceiving, murderous, oil and gas companies. So this morning, I did something I've never done before in hopes the people coming home from their long weekends in Tofino and Ucluelet get the message.

@chris Good work ✌️

@chris @Buthowhighishigh From my own past experiences with defacing many lying ecocidal corporation ads/signs in public spaces, and writing the truth over their lies - not much will likely happen to you. I've lost count of how many times I've defaced greenwashing corporate signs over the years - never got arrested or even given a warning, for any of those actions.

This is a great article, and I am 100% delighted by their description of me!! "Lawler has been an academic Chicken Little for years about the danger of freefalling space shit, especially in a time when space travel has been privatized and so many bored billionaires would rather spend their money playing Spaceman Spiff than, say, solving world hunger or the climate crisis"
