Most Canadians have never been onboard with having the history of our country erased.
One of the many consequences of the legacy press having become dominated by the far-left is that a false consensus has been imposed on the country.
Often times, you’ll talk to someone who seems to express many Conservative beliefs, yet will identify themselves as being a Liberal or even New Democrat. This is in large part because the media has made many widely-held Conservative opinions seem like fringe ideas, and people are thus less likely to identify themselves as holding those views.
This has started to break down, in large part due both to the rise of independent media and Pierre Poilievre’s effective communication style.
Still, the far-left retains significant narrative control, and they are still advancing their radical agenda, even in the face of massive public opposition.
For example, the renaming of Yonge-Dundas Square to ‘Sankofa’ Square is incredibly unpopular. This is likely due to the fact that ‘Sankofa’ has no meaning in Canada and is connected to an African tribe that enslaved people, while Henry Dundas was someone who fought to abolish slavery.
A new poll by Liaison Strategies shows massive opposition to the move:
“According to the new survey, conducted by Liaison Strategies for the National Ethnic Press and Media Council of Canada, 72 per cent of respondents disapprove of the move, while 16 per cent say they approve and 12 per cent aren’t sure.
“We’ve polled a lot of different issues and been here to talk about them. I don’t think we’ve seen numbers quite this strikingly bad for something before,” Liaison Strategies Principal David Valentin told CP24. “No category supports this. No part of the city supports this, no gender, no age demographic supports this. And I think it may be one of those things where if people sat down and explained it to you, then maybe you might be be in favour of it, but I think the name came as a surprise to many people and I don’t know how much public consultation there was before council voted on it.””
It really is unlikely that the move would be more popular with more explanation, given the insanity of picking the ‘Sankofa’ name, and the absurdity of removing Dundas’ name in the first place.
This is why it is important to support independent media, and to keep exposing the huge gap between the legacy media/left-wing agenda, and what the public really thinks. The more people realize that their ‘isolated’ and ‘rare’ ‘Conservative’ views are actually widely held, the more people will have confidence to share what they really think and help defeat the false consensus that has been imposed on this country.
