Sensitivity in the eye of the beholder

Take a page from the Scottish and tough it out

The recent Don Cherry comments have inflamed the overly sensitive political sensitivities rampant in Canada these days.

I emigrated to Canada in 1962 and noted then and up to now that the iconic Canadian Tire money had a picture of a Scotsman, with the obvious (but wrong!) inference that the Scottish were frugal and cheap.

While we should maybe be incensed at this insult, Scots are made of stronger stuff!

C’mon, Canada, get a life.
