Canada is NOT the best place on earth that it purports to be on the international stage Featured

 

 

Mandeep Wirk 

I am writing this blog in response to a new Human Rights Watch report that alleges Mounties raped and abused BC aboriginal girls. Here is a link to that article:

Shameful and completely unacceptable behaviour by the Canadian RCMP officers - of course nothing will happen to the RCMP officers under Canadian law because their skins are white. 

RCMP and Canadian Armed Forces have also been in the news regarding class action lawsuits by women officers about sexism and sexual abuse. 

Recently  in the news was a story of ultra right extremist Canuck soldiers in the Canadian Armed Forces and how one such soldier upon identification abandoned his car at the US-Canada border. Such stories of racism in Canadian military come out in the news every now and then. 

Canada has a very long way to go indeed in creating a dignified social environment where all people irrespective of their skin colour, race, and religion can thrive and flourish in equality. 

Under these circumstances where the public can no longer put their trust in the RCMP, it is best that the entire force be dismantled and UN Security people be brought into northern Canada to protect the First  Nations communities. 

Also it should be considered that third parties should be brought into all RCMP  detachments throughout Canada to oversee that officers conduct themselves in an ethical and humane way.

Mandeep Wirk was born in Kenya and as a little girl immigrated with her family to England. Then in 1972, the year that multiculturalism became official policy in Canada and the doors of immigration opened up to people of colour, she immigrated again with her family settling in Abbotsford, British Columbia. Besides being a writer and journalist, Wirk is also a visual artist, photographer, educator, and social activist. You can follow Wirk on her public FB page Art and Culture in Surrey at https://m.facebook.com/Art-and-Culture-in-Surrey-1662144070683149/.
