Well to be fair, the Aspers have been known to have strong ties to the Liberal Party, especially when the Liberal Party were in power from 1993-2006.

And so do the Richardsons.....hmmmm.....can we find a WASP conspiracy now?

djh wrote:the shrine to pierre trudeau i was referring to was the CMHR. its connected to this thread by its relation to the asper family. in the artists illustrations of the main foyer of the CMHR. there is a gigantic portrait of PET. his relationship to human rights is unclear to me at this time. i know there is another thread to the CMHR, so i wont bring it up here again.
Is the use of the term "a shrine to Pierre Trudeau" a derogatory slur because of its' connection to the Asper family?

Or is it a compliment?

Please stop attacking each other. It serves no purpose to this thread. If some of you want to keep pulling at old scabs, unrelated to this thread, go elsewhere to do so. Start another thread. Just get out of this thread.

I read somewhere a few weeks ago that Canwest Media shares actually increased substantially, considering it's downward plunge as of late. If I can dig it up, I'll post it.

What's wrong with WASPs? I happen to be quite proud of my heritage (although I'm not Protestant).

Besides the revenue, all other sectors reported had a gain in comparison with 2009.

Hopefully Canwest can turn their fortunes around before it's too late.

Nothing wrong with WASP's.....but if you are not Protestant then you cannot call yourself one.

Point being made by me that if inferences regarding culture and business are going to be made then let us examine some other powerful and local families like the Richardsons and the Axworthys.

lol.

I never said I came from a Muslim background (background is British/Irish/part Icelandic). I was comtemplating conversion a few months back, but coming from a family that never went to church, I did not have it in me to pray 5 times per day...lol. Having said that, I admire the humbleness and moral values of Muslims. I believe in many of Mohammid's teachings, but I ultimately decided not to convert.

Oh, ok. Based on many of your responses, and the fact that others were asking you to help them understand Muslim culture in past threads, I was under the impression that you were indeed Muslim. Thanks for the clarification.

If all the TV stations and all the papers and radio stations and weekly, monthly ,annually magazines were owned by the Jews, (I think they are) so what?
Did they steal them? Conrad Black is in jail beause he got the Aspers to buy his national Post. Make sure you are careful when you "Jew a Jew"!
