“I am a traitor to my race… If the relative power and status of the white race were to slowly diminish in influence over time – to be replaced with concepts and source of identity that would facilitate better stewardship of the earth and more respect for the rights of all humans, then I would welcome this… I do not know the extent to which I have been advantaged, but it is clear that I have… This ‘extentness’ cannot be unpacked because there is no separating what I have earned from what I have been given.

“I think he needs to answer for it. I think he’s got to answer the question why he did that and what does that say about what he thinks about people who, because of who they are, because of the colour of their skin, face challenges and barriers and obstacles in their life… Who is the real Mr. Trudeau?
