No need to replace Laurier on $5 bill

For your reader’s information the Bank of Canada is now asking for suggestions on the design of a new five dollar bill. While some might see this as laudable there is much more to this initiative than meets the eye.

First, why do we need this? The transparent nature of the continued social engineering of Canada should now be apparent to all. John A. Macdonald was removed from his place of prominence on the $10 bill. Statues of our first prime minister have been taken down or vandalized across the nation. A special loonie has been announced alongside all of this historical revisionism, and we are all left wondering why any of this is happening.

Why the $5 bill now? The answer lies in Sir Wilfred Laurier, the figure now adorning the five. Perhaps our greatest prime minister, he was a man responsible for the expansion of our nation, its entry on to the 20th century stage as a respected entity, and the booming development we experienced as a country in the early 1900s. He was one of Canada’s greatest leaders.

Yet somehow he’s not good enough to be on the $5 bill anymore. Why? Because liberal progressives (perhaps we should dub them liberal bullies) want to revise our history to their tastes and continue the memes, tropes and whitewashing of Canada they have already done so much to promote.

They need to create a new hypothetical, politically correct nation. Ours isn’t good enough for them. It’s cultural totalitarianism folks, and a distortion of our legitimate history and it shouldn’t be happening.

Keep Laurier on the $5 bill. We don’t need some obscure individual no one has heard of who has had no impact on our history just to satisfy the P.C. extremists and the other members of the liberal progressive mob.

If we care at all about this great nation of ours we will take the time to defend its traditions and history by preserving the images of its greatest historical figures. Laurier was one of them. He should stay on the $5 bill and no one else should grace it.
