Rhoda Howard-Hassmann: African Descent and Gladu Canada
rhoda howard-hassmann: It makes it less special, said Gladu, according to The Chronicle Herald. Canada seems to be the apology capital of the world right now, said Rhoda Howard-Hassmann, a professor emeritus of political science from Wilfrid Laurier University. I think it's worth apologizing for it, but you can have dilution in recognition when you start apologizing, apologizing, apologizing. She said if Trudeau makes too many apologies, people may call it silly, but on the other hand, if he apologizes to one group and not the other, it leaves people behind. Howard-Hassmann pointed out that while Kelly apologized for the specific incident, people of African descent in Canada overall have not been given an official apology. In 2010, the then-mayor of Halifax, Peter Kelly, apologized for the destruction of Africville, a north-end community the city bulldozed over 40 years ago. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
