There is something so unappealing about this new Canada where literally everyone and their mother, and her mother, and her mother’s cousin twice removed is a victim. Into this multicultural cult of perpetual victimhood comes the Canadian Islamic Congress with it’s latest media communiqué:
The Canadian Islamic Congress is welcoming the announcement of a unique McGill University study that will receive a research grant from the federal government's Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to help "ease the emotional conflict experienced by Muslim-Canadian children living in today’s post 9-11 world."
"CIC was the first proactive organizations after Sept. 11, 2001 to urge more academic support in this critical area," today's CIC statement said. "This is definitely a big step in the right direction and we hope it will provide the momentum and commitment for more funding to support the increasingly relevant field of transcultural psychiatry."
The McGill project, led by Dr. Cécile Rousseau, is among more than 960 research initiatives that will benefit from yesterday's announcement of $81 million in funding support being distributed through the SSHRC.
What on earth does “to help ease the emotional conflict experienced by Muslim-Canadian children living in today’s post 9-11 world” really mean for frack’s sake? Geeze, what about me – I am absolutely traumatized that the government is giving away Cdn$81 million for this horseshit. I might never recover……I blame all those sensitivity training sessions. At least in the old Canada; a stiff upper lip didn’t require for the rest of us to pony up.
