I'm sharing this video from Michael Moore's movie "Where to Invade Next?". It is the part where he goes to Germany and remarks on how schools do not shy away from teaching students about the Nazis and the Holocaust, and that there are everyday reminders of what happened in that country, by Germans.
I think you can say that the Nazis are in a class by themselves, but if you are Canadian, you do need to accept that there are atrocities that happened here when the Europeans came over to colonize the land, and since then, including of course the residential schools. I know our kids are learning a bit about this now, but the rest of us need to catch up.
While you appreciate our country and all of its good things, also spend some time reflecting as well.
