All information related to Canada’s first Prime Minister, Sir John A. MacDonald has apparently disappeared from the Canadian Archives.
Our current website contains information that was written many years ago,” states a notice posted on the website.
Unfortunately, it does not always reflect our diverse and multicultural country, often presenting one side of Canada’s history.
Library Archives Canada acknowledges that some of its online presence is offensive and continues to correct these issues. That is why content that is redundant or outdated will be removed or rewritten.
While Sir John A. MacDonald was not a particularly nice man (he didn’t much like Indians, Chinese or competitors), he did play a very big role in pushing the railroads across Canada. Learning about the bad things we did to the Chinese workers (they died in scores, about 600 out of 15000 total workers) was part of getting through high school. We had to watch a 447 minute dramatisation of the events in the series The National Dream, written by Pierre Berton and featuring actor William Hutt in a brilliant performance as Sir John A. Macdonald. Three million people watched the first release.
For some reason, the CBC has made it almost impossible to view The National Dream despite almost universally [glowing reviews]:
I watched this as a kid in 1974 and I loved it. Recently I tried to find this CBC Canadian Broadcasting Company show. You can only watch it if you are a registered educational institution and a paid member of Curio.ca. So if you have kids in a Canadian school, maybe you can get it through them….it IS possible to obtain a copy of this series on DVD. After much searching, I found that it can only be purchased directly from the Educational Services department of the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation), although it is quite pricey (approximately 200CAD).
Does it really make us more intelligent, wiser or more virtuous to stick our heads in the sands and ignore history? The Zerohedge discussion was fierce, starting with some famous quotations about history featuring mainly George Orwell but extending to Chairman Mao. A fair amount of vitriol was heaped on Canadians and Canada, by both Americans but even more often by actual Canadians. Logical, as the people who feel most strongly about Canada and Canadians, are Candians ourselves. Here’s some highlights without commentary. I don’t agree with all or even most of the remarks here but they are all thought-provoking. Have we really come to the point that we cannot stand the truth or to look into a mirror?
For the first few copied comments, I did not record the original poster’s screen name but just the comment.
Some Individual Comments on the cancellation of Sir John A. Macdonald
History must be erased…that’s the entire point.
“Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.” ― Theodore Dalrymple
“Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell
Straight outta Mao’s playbook:
Eliminate the 4 Olds:
They are running the Commie cultural revolution by the book.
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984
Who knew that Winston Smith works for Canada’s national archive?
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” – George Orwell
”In Canada, once a progressive, non-offensive nation that left-wing Americans fantasized about moving to every time Republicans won an election, we hear the same arguments the Left makes about our Founders. Rioters have torn down a statue of founder John A. McDonald. “Canada Day” has suddenly become contraversjust like the Fourth of July. Leftists claim Canada is indigenous land, so the country itself is illegitimate. If white leftists really believe this, they should move to Europe.“
Gregory Hood. American Renaissance.
I believe Stalin did similar things. If we don’t keep all our history, both the bad with the good, then we don’t learn from it right?
Lively Discussion around Canada and Canadians and Cancel Culture
Many feel that Canada might be at the forefront of Cancel Culture. For once Canada will be in the vanguard of culture.
The funny part is that progressive whites don’t realize the end goal is THEIR elimination. Just look at the level of importation of everything from every corner of the earth who’s a victim. The west is done and white people are going to be removed, other than the “elites” of course who will demand the role of royalty replacing such figures as MacDonald.
The “elite” will be removed too, unless they have a plan to purge the mass majority of the human population, which hopefully they do.
Your average white Canadian doesn’t care because they believe the world would be just as well off if they were replaced by some foreigner. No appreciation for their culture or history.
White people in the west are too stupid and lazy to realize their destiny has been telegraphed in Rhodesia and South Africa. The purge will be violent and bloody while the progressive dolts on the recieving end will be screaming “but look what we did for you” as they’re slaughtered.
The vast majority of Canadians are sheep who naively trust their government and have no concept of personal freedom or rights or skepticism or other such things that still exist in the US. This enabled Canadians to be conquered and controlled much more easily, really with practically no resistance. Canadians have zero organized resistance such as militia. It’s not part of their culture, and the small minority that go that route are widely ridiculed even by people who might otherwise agree with them politically.
Don’t be too smug in that, traditional rural America is dying off and most of their kids want to move to the city. Blackrock and Gates types will come to own their farms, while their kids own nothing and are happy. And any organized “militia group” in America is likely composed of at least 40% federal agents or informants.
this is government sponsored cancel culture stuff. Here in Baltimore they did same tearing down Christopher Columbus’ statue and throwing broken marble in harbor last summer. This maybe small group 50-100 woke antifa BLM people and just blocks from the main police station. The police did nothing to stop the vandalism which they clearly could have stopped. The same in Canada with Queen Victoria or Sir John Alexander Macdonald. The police are being told by politicians to stand back and do nothing. We also had middle of the night city remove confederate statues, no hearing. Cancel culture and 1619 project – and these idiot youth think somehow this is woke and fights racism, give me a break, police should arrest the lot of them for destruction of property.
By their hateful and racist actions, the so-called woke crowd are stirring up old racists and creating new ones in droves.
Woe Canada! My country has disappeared before my eyes these past five years.
Could not have been done, without the complete abdication of Canadian White Society.
The same can be said of what is happening in the USA.
“In China’s Cultural Revolution, the Red Guards mindlessly destroyed much of China’s priceless cultural heritage as part of the deranged agenda of destroying whatever was traditional and valued by ‘counter-revolutionaries.’ [As did Stalin.] Out with the old, in with the new–the time-honored pattern of power grabs masked by utopian goals.
“If in doubt, purge, destroy, denounce. This is the Inquisition nature of all Cultural Revolutions.“ — Charles Hugh Smith
The world is being reset in a worldwide takeover by the parasitic elite – the elite globalists who control the money supply, ie, the power.
Hey, when the pendulum swings back the other way, politically, and it will, can we cancel Trudeau?
When they are importing millions of leftist-voting immigrants each year while white populations are in decline due to low birth rate, the pendulum ain’t swinging back.
can’t wait to see canada round up all the non vaxxinated
Seal Team 6
These people have the 2nd largest land mass on earth and their house prices match London. Only a totally corrupt and vile system can result in that.
Canada is a living example of how woke leftist ideology can take a vast, rich land with decent, well educated people and over 40 years turn it into a third world shthle!
Dead.White. Males. Matter.
The ghosts of civilization, history, mathematics, philosophy, literature, industrialization, craftsmanship….. and a few others too numerous to mention because of the ADD culture.
So by removing a website, it suddenly never happened huh? These people really are complete f***ing retards.
As a Canadian living less than 80km from Ottawa, I can tell you from boots on the ground experience, people don’t seem alarmed by what is going on, they are so blind it’s dangerous…
Yeah, I really cannot comprehend wtf is wrong with people in Canada right now. They do as the tee vee tells them, pure drone thinking. We are a nation of sheep and we love being slaughtered because government says so. I just can’t get that. why? why would people just take .gov at face value and do whatever .gov commands. No regard for own health, people say that if something happens the public healthcare system will fix them, wtf.
The Woke contagion started in the American academy has spread like wildfire in other western countries. It’s not just about the US. It’s a tearing down of all white western cultural values and systems. After “the long march through the institutions” destroying historical records is the next stage.
This has all been done before by the Jacobins, the Bolsheviks and Mao’s Red Army.
Diversification? Less than 5% of the total population is Canada is LGBT, yet they get 25% of the year to celebrate; the season that you can actually walk outside with a shirt. The entire country is under a blanket of weed smoke as the government watches the youth smoke their future away destroying there already limited brain cells. How many people have died from pot related use… ie car crashes? $6 billion in tax revenue but many more in cost. The police are not concerned about weed being exchanged outside and inside schools; all they care about is loss in tax revenue!!! An economy solely based on home property values. A bunch of retarded psychopaths running a country to the ground… and I mean from every party. Canada is 2/5 Chinese, 2/5 Indian/Pakistani; the remaining 1/5 is everyone else. 10 Provincial representatives for the Queen of ENGLAND and one for the entire country… when one is more than enough. A G7 banana republic literally high on itself corrupted to the atom. A British ‘ex’ colony as banana as Jamaica, Barbados, Seychelles, etc.
Canada is the evolved version of us. We will get there though.
Those that don’t know history are doomed to repeat it, ergo, those who want to hide history want it to be repeated. The tyrants are just getting warmed up and they have the useful idiots to do their dirty work.
All this revising and toppling leaves one breathless at the abject stupidity of those promoting this politically correct narrative.
Stuff happened and no cancelling records or statues can change this. In fact, an accurate record of the past is essential to understand the why and wherefore …… and to make decisions so that we can now act differently.
However, judging by the course taken by present day “justice warriors” even worse atrocities are being and will be committed…. all the while the perpetrators claiming moral superiority.
I remember when MTV played music videos, the WSJ was a business newspaper, and ESPN reported sports information….can be we go back to that ?
George Orwell identified the memory hole as the authoritarians’ control mechanism. Marxists claimed history was dead, that Marxism was the future. And now Canada makes it come to life….erasing history, book burning, changing the past to control the future. These are weapons in a Dirty War, disappearing the opposition. Look for it everywhere.
History shouldn’t be censored. It is how we learn about ourselves, and deleting uncomfortable topics from the past stunts the intellectual development of the present.
It’s funny how many of us used to think “fleeing” to Canada, Australia or New Zealand was the ultimate escape plan from descending Amerikan tyranny.
Now we are seeing before our eyes – on a daily basis no less – how truly authoritarian and revisionist the Commonwealth has become…
China and Russia are aghast that the foundations of “Western” success are being dismantled in real time. Add a few years of lock-downs and Big Tech cancelling and nobody will know their own history ever again – either as a teaching tool to address real injustice, or to champion the Human Spirit overcoming oppression.
