Canadians don't support the woke agendas

Most things do, or should, have limits. That's why Section 1 of the Charter is Section 1

As the "tolerance level" for rudeness, I'd say it should be pretty high when it comes to regulation, law etc.  Having hurt feelings, being offended etc demands far too much attention these days.  People need to get over themselves.  

But when people get offended by certain things, they don't frame it as being offended.  More like rage, which is still an emotion but someone supposed to be respectable.

Anything to do with Remembrance Day elicits offense... white poppies, opting out, wearing a Turban to a legion... but try to attribute it to cancel culture or being a snowflake and people get all confused...

True enough, but but that's the perspective and self-awareness that the average culture warrior (of both sides) seems to lack.

It's self-absorbed and ignorant snowflakes arguing just raging and yelling at each other, yes.

That is how the new generations express themselves, rage...not conversation ,but yelling and screaming...

What is Remembrance day for...it happens one day a year,to honor all those that fought and died of our country...why would someone fell the need to highjack that one day for something else...don't wonder why they would disagree or get angry, it is a sign of disrespect.... make your own day up that fits your cause....Stop using one that remembers those that sacrificed everything...it is disrespectful.... Now that day might not mean anything to most Canadians but it means everything to me...Want to opt out then fine do that,  it really not a day for them anyways...

The wearing of turbans in the Legion...is not about turbans it is about NOT wearing any head dress in the legion, a long standing tradition if a government institution displays a picture of the Queen/ king, head dress is to be removed as a sign of respect...once again why is it a problem, don't want to take off your headdress then don't come in...it is just a dress code, like they have in golf, restaurants, churches, etc etc...

Yes, but people expressed rage and this was a few generations ago.

No political tribe has a monopoly on the high road.

Punjabi Sikhs have never been required to remove turbans in the Mess, by the British Army

since the Punjab Regiment was founded in 1761

 the Sikh warrrior has hair down past his waist, the turban is not headdress like a hat which he can remove

the Legion, like every other Canadian institution, is simply ignorant as to their own history

HM The Queen would call them 1diots for demanding Sikhs remove turbans in her honour

the Legion has nothing to do with the military, it's a private club

Here on the forum, i would say yes you should have some what thick skin, but in real life, there is also limits to being rude and consequences...If i insult your wife,in front of you  i should also expect consequences...

Yes, but then we don't really need papa government getting involved in that, do we? 🫡

Most people do not like change, military or ex military have a deep ingrain sense of tradition, add both of them together and yes you will see some express it as rage...But like every tradition in Canada they are all starting to be chipped away...to accommodate diversity...only time will tell if it was all worth it..

Legions will soon be a thing of the past...

no they don't

example being that they did not know that Sikhs have never been required to remove headdress for the Sovereign

and that's a tradition which dates back 263 years

DND/ legion  has had a long dispute with turbans and not followed the Brits example ...IE helmets requirements, in messes, Kirpans etc etc... i did not say i agreed with all of it there are a lot of idi*ts within each organization...
