"Michael, Row Your Boat Ashore" and Set Fire To It

You're a privileged, white, genocidal thief!  So says one Misao Dean, a tenured English professor at Canada's  University of Victoria, to tell us that Canada's choice of a canoe as a part of their logo is reprehensible!

Dean is waving the banner for Indians or in PC "Native Canadians."   She claims, vociferously no doubt, that The White Man stole their means of transportation (Ed. note - steam hadn't been invented yet) and even unto to today flaunts it by poncing around on the beautiful waters of Canada!

I had not realized that our great border country had Indians (PC!  Native Americans) let alone that enough of them could be insulted by a white man in a canoe on a Canadian lake.   I think any right thinking person (Indian or not) would look out onto the lake and assign tourist dollars spent, using a mental calculator to add up how much each Indian - or not - could gouge from this well-educated, well-off white man.

As a member of the so-called "fairer sex"I find it rather insulting to have been excluded from consideration in wearing a banner or, more likely, a t-shirt that says "I'm a genocidal thief."  If you don't know by now, I'll tell you with confidence that women can be just as evil and vicious to Canadian Indians as any male.  Even though we might hire one to row us around the lake in our lovely canoe.  We'd punish them by not making conversation.  How's that for mean?!
