Colonizers Ironically Form Committee to Determine if Their Own Historical Suffering was Genocide, Completely Ignoring the Historical and Current Genocide Committed Against Aboriginal People
The Société de l'Acadie du Nouveau-Brunswick, an advocacy group that advocates for the rights of Francophones and Acadians, is forming a committee to look at whether the historicalexpulsion of Acadians should be considered a genocide.
The CBC reports that the lobbying group decided to look into the controversial issue during its annual general meeting over the weekend.
"It's just an event that has been so important in our national identity or our cultural identity," said Eric Dow, of the Société de l'Acadie du Nouveau-Brunswick.
Shockingly, the creation of the committee comes just weeks after a national inquiry for missing and murdered Indigenous women called the epidemic of crimes against indigenous women a "Canadian genocide" - a claim than many colonizers were offended by due to rampant feelings of fragility and a general disregard for indigenous people.
