  1. The real issue among police departments and the RCMP is not racism, it’s corruption and police brutality. Everyone must read a recent article by Maclean’s titled …The Nova Scotia shooter case has hallmarks of an undercover operation…

  2. If he is looking for racism, somebody gotta get a mirror for singh

  3. Racism exist everywhere including in every ethnic communities it just so happen that it is to easy to see racism when it involves two different racial groups. For Singh to call a Block MP racist because he did not support Singh’s motion is like saying if Singh do not support Quebec’s separation from Canada it is racist.

      Not even close to an accurate comparison. What does the separation of Quebec have to do with racism? The motion that Singh is proposing is DIRECTLY combatting systematic racism. So if you are against that, you are most definitely supporting a current system of oppression.

    • ??? You are indeed off your rocker, as Richard C rightly said. Singh motioned to review the RCMP budget, use of force, tactics and trainings, and accountability, all specific to encounters with visible minorities. In short it is a motion to review systemic racism within the RCMP, so if you are against this motion, you must be BY LOGIC a racist. Singh calling the Bloc MP has NOTHING to do with Quebec’s separation.

    • @Austin Arrotta Separation just like everything now can be about racism. The Block feels that they are being discriminated why do you think we have the BQ it is for them to make sure that they get a “fair” share from the majority English Canada.

    • @dantankun (is like saying if) You’re right. But can’t expect amphoras to understand much of anything.

  4. new drinking game, every time someone says systematic racism you drink a shot.

  6. 0:55 – Yes, Jag should face severe punishment for cawing him names and huwting his feewings. That wasn’t cool of Jag to pick on a wittew kid. ¬_¬ Huh? What? Alain’s _not_ a toddler? 😕

  7. Is no one questioning the BlockMP about his decision?

  8. What a giant baby. Singh, you were brushed off because you were acting like a child, as you are still.

    If you say you are not a racist, you are a racist.
    If you are silent, you are a racist.
    If you disagree at all, you are a racist.
    What a lovely world.

    We want elected Presidents and proper congressional representation, not primping Ministers dancing to the beat of a secret royal bureaucracy.

    Looks like vertically no one knows how unparlimantry langue and decorum works. That said, I totally support Singhs motion but there are rules to follow. BTW, the apology is more of a retraction then a “I’m so sorry” kinds thing.
