Ethnic backlash

Anyone not familiar with Jacques Parizeau's infamous statement about the ethnic vote in 1995 is new to Canadian politics: "True, we've been defeated... at the very heart of it, by what? By money... and ethnic votes... essentially."

This morning's Globe and Mail publishes an interesting analysis on how the ethnic vote is being considered in the current election campaign: "In the eyes of the major parties, some of us ethnics count more than others. Although most of us abhor that bigotry, we are still being manipulated to think along those lines."

What do our current leaders have in common with Mr. Parizeau? Well... they're all oblivious to the fact that "ethnics" primarily want to be considered as any other citizen, not like some kind of merchandise.

You gotta love this video...
