‘Rewriting Canadian History: Quebec’

Quelle ironie! First, Quebecois nationalists rewrote Canadian history to reflect their bias; now, aboriginal nationalists are doing the same to the history of Quebec: ERBLRewritingCanadianHistory--Quebec800x800“The shortage of aboriginal issues in Quebec’s new high-school history curriculum is “unacceptable”, according to ‘First Nations’ activists… 

“The two-year course begins with the arrival of French settlers in the 1500’s, with the first module examining the experience of aboriginal people under ‘colonization’.

“Another section, from 1945 to 1980, includes a focus on the conditions on reserves and the recognition of ‘ancestral rights’.

{? If there is such a thing as “ancestral rights”, then all Canadians are entitled to the same ‘rights’. The chaos that would result from such an approach should be obvious to any reasonably-intelligent person. Why, then, do we persist with this foolishness where ‘aboriginals’ are concerned?}

“David Birnbaum, the parliamentary assistant to Quebec’s education minister, told ‘CBC News’ on Thursday that Quebec’s new history curriculum will undergo more changes before it is rolled out across the province. David Birnbaum, the parliamentary assistant to Quebec's education minister“He said the program has already been altered since the Liberals came to power, to more accurately reflect the history of Quebec’s ‘non-francophone’ and aboriginal communities…

“The course was originally developed under the previous ‘Parti Québécois’ government, which had campaigned in 2012 on a promise to emphasize Quebec’s struggle for ‘nationhood’ in the provincial school curriculum.

“Ellen Gabriel, a longtime Mohawk activist and artist from Kanesatake, said the history of residential schools in Canada should be considered

“just as important as teaching about the Holocaust and World War 2.”

“Robert Green, the head of Westmount High School’s social sciences department, said the new curriculum also glosses over the ‘Oka crisis’ and how both Quebec and Canada dealt with the Mohawks.

“I try to give my students an accurate and critical perspective on history and that certainly won’t change, but the materials I have to do that with and the official curriculum, I might have to be fighting against”, he said.

{Another self-righteous, politically-biased teacher who thinks it’s his ‘duty’ to indoctrinate children with his personal ideology…}

“John Commins, a longtime history teacher in the ‘English Montreal School Board’, said he’s concerned the course focuses too narrowly on the “narrative of an embattled minority”…

“ Commins said many immigrant communities that helped shape Montreal, including the Irish, Italians, Greek and Caribbean populations, get little mention.

“The Jewish community is also not referenced, aside from a nod to Leonard Cohen…”

{A ridiculously one-sided view of the Residential Schools. If they want to broaden the children’s education, may we suggest:
