(1203) Alt Right-ey Canada


Full frontal Fascism, that dreadful Twentieth Century affliction, never had occasion to catch on with the Canadian people.  Be thankful for that, though it doesn’t mean our history is without blemish.  There has been a string of interest in Fascism in Canada that leads back decades.
In the globalized present, there is plenty to worry about. Influences arrive in Canada from a dysfunctional and unhappy America by the day. They combine with local conditions and still other global influences.  The results are full of unhealthy potential.
