Progressive Liberal Sickness

I’m not sure if you heard about the tragic and horrible bus crash of a junior hockey league team in Saskatchewan, Canada. Fifteen youth dead, aged 16-21.

Here comes Canadian “journalist,” Nora Loreto, her comment, “I’m trying to not get cynical about what is a totally devastating tragedy but the maleness, the youthfulness and the whiteness of the victims are, of course, playing a significant role. Can we genuinely imagine that a hypothetical tragedy involving non-white teenagers returning home from a badminton tournament or some other sporting event less esteemed in our national consciousness would have received a similar treatment? When 10 migrant workers (READ ILLEGAL) were killed in a bus accident in rural southern Ontario in 2012, there was no national campaign, no fundraiser, and the three survivors had to fight to be able to stay in Canada.
