“Employees are quitting instead of giving up working from home.
With the coronavirus pandemic receding for every vaccine that reaches an arm, the push by some employers to get people back into offices is clashing with workers who’ve embraced remote work as the new normal.”

“Isn’t Who We Are”

Why are there Canadians willing to deny the Residential School system was a genocide perpetrated against Indigenous people of Canada? Maybe the top politicians saying this Isn’t Who We Are, and the paid radio ads have an impact on the Denialist psyche?

Canada is a normal settler-colonial country with a dark history of genocide against Indigenous peoples

The Minister doesn’t seem aware, or in charge since this is his tweet upon the discovery of the graves:

Maybe stop fighting survivors of these Residential Schools in court, Liberals?
