A certain City Councillor, Rob Ford, is in the middle of a brouhaha here in Toronto for saying that Asians are taking over and work like dogs – http://www.thestar.com/News/GTA/article/310319
Now our Mayor wants Mr Ford to apologise for such “racist comments”. If you go on to read the article the Councillor is not the best at choosing his words, thereby his sentiments not being put forward as intended. He was trying to praise the work ethic of asians, but it came off as being rednecked.
My issue – what about eastern europeans? Darn it! I work hard as well and I take umbrage for not being classed as a dog. I think I would make a fabulous pomeranian.
