This reality is a bit harder to swallow: There are more white people in the US and Canada because the US and Canada were established using the systematic genocide of Native peoples, the theft of Native lands, and the labour of enslaved peoples in the past and immigrant peoples currently who were and are never meant to stay or survive.

And now you’re uncomfortable. Good.

When you accept and acknowledge that census figures reflect a long history of marginalization, it is preposterous to use these same figures as the benchmark to which you measure the inclusion of marginalized people.

There’s a great piece in the Toast about representation and diversity (‘Proportional Representation’ Has No Place In Diversity Discussions by Léonicka Valcius) today. (via whineandbeer)

Conservative ideas emanate from and are well received in the Far West. The Vancouver-based Fraser Institute, the country’s most prominent rightwing think-tank, has had its greatest influence in shaping public policy in this region. The Far West produced the neo-conservative Western Standard and the right-of-centre Alberta Report and BC Report. It is where the conservative National Post attracts a disproportionate share of its subscribers. The Post’s conservative broadcast-news partner, Global National, is produced in Vancouver and draws a disproportionate share of its viewers in the Far West. The newscast attracts more Conservative voters across the country than either its CBC or CTV counterparts, although each of them has many more viewers overall.* A difference within the Far West is that BC’s political culture, one that pits leftists against rightists, is riven and conflicted. In Alberta, where the left is marginalized, there is more of a societal consensus about political values. Wiseman, Nelson. In Search of Canadian Political Culture.  2007.
