Time to stop looking in rearview mirror
Like many Canadians, I find Prime Minister Trudeau’s constant campaigning, fundraising, taking selfies and being on an endless apology tour deeply irritating. This lastest apology for actions 150 years ago, when Canada was somewhat a ‘ lawless country’ is ludicrous, since no matter how hard he tries Trudeau cannot rewrite and erase Canada’s history.
Every country has things in its past it is not proud of, but it is better to move forward than backwards. Obviously, like everything Trudeau does, his endless apologies are attempts to curry favour with certain voting blocks.
Being from an Acadian background, with my ancestors arriving in Nova Scotia in 1604, they too were treated very badly, as they were expelled from Canada, yet Acadians have moved forwarded, maintaining their rich culture without relying on the government. My hope is that other groups which have suffered indignities will do the same. We cannot keep looking in the rear view mirror as Trudeau keeps wanting to do. Larry Comeau Ottawa
