This is probably the most Canadian specific comic I’ve written in a long time. It was actually inspired by a conversation with my husband.

As Canadians, we’re really keen to go on about how much better Canada is compared to the US while simultaneously not really knowing much of what’s happening in our own back yard. I know that’s the case with me.

The incident with Colten Boushie was terrible, but honestly, anyone even tangentially aware of how we treat first nations people wasn’t surprised.

Come on Canada – we’re supposed to be better than this.

I promise the next one will be less serious, but this needed to be said.
