Hardly a day goes by in Canada without a progressive politician somewhere expressing shame for something their country has done. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, national self-flagellator in chief, did so on the world stage at the United Nations this fall. The right does it too, but their gripes about Canada are usually policy-specific, not aimed at the country’s entire history and culture. Mark Jacka wonders why the left has such a dismal opinion of their country, so devoid of any fair-minded historical or international context, and warns that national self-loathing may eventually lead to national self-destruction.
