No, I am not an idealist who sees Canada through rose-coloured glasses. We're not perfect by any means. We have mistakes to correct and amends to make. We have work to do. But would we ever succumb to the toxic rhetoric of a sleaze ball like Donald Trump? Would we let a dangerous lunatic like him drag our country through the mud, making a mockery of everything we stand for, making us the laughing stock of the world, putting everything we hold dear at risk, turning us against each other, turning us against our allies?

Aside from the ludicrous notion that anyone other than Canada's Native population is truly "old-stock Canadians," there is a certain divisive, chamber-pot snobbery to the term. It's not a celebration of "lineage," it's a wedge. It has no use other than to separate the speaker from others. Without even having to wonder why it was never used in our house, I know that my parents would have considered it vulgar. We are all "old-stock" Canadians, no matter where we're from, or how recently we've arrived.
