e’re sorry India — please don’t think all Canadians are like Justin Trudeau and his family and friends. We’re not.
For example, thousands of Canadians visit the beautiful Taj Mahal every year — and none of us demand that 35,000 pilgrims be forced to wait outside, in the heat, for sixty minutes while we take our photos there, just to have a better picture, like Trudeau and his family did.
We’re sorry India — please don’t think that’s how most Canadians are. We actually try to be polite.
We’re interested in Indian culture and food and music and people — we have many great Indians in Canada, as I’m sure you know. Not all Canadians put on bindis and wear Indian clothing when we go to an Indian restaurant, and say “namaste” all the time. When most Canadians meet Indian people, we can stay calm. We don’t have to pretend we’re at a costume party, or that Indians are a curiosity in a museum.
