We're just a team of two Canadian gals hoping to shed light on the mass injustices faced by Canadians both in Canada and abroad. Submissions adored.

Anonymous asks:I am just so very curious - here in my country Canada is superfamous for its omnipresent, marvellous tolerance, mostly for homosexuals, what really gloats me over. I wonder if it is a myth or a true fact that citizenry is really open and doesn't really mind? Also, I'd like to ask about the women rights - are they being discriminated (for example as for applying for a job in a company, or gaining the same salary as men) or is this bitter habit a decadence? Thanks in advance for your reply! C:
ooh interesting! I’m wondering what country that would be. It’s really nice that we’re thought of that way, and yes, gay marriage is legal for sure but I wouldn’t say there’s perfect equality, especially as you move into the T side of LGBT. but the tumblr social justice community is a scary place and I feel like the more I say about this topic, the closer my probability of saying something offensive approaches to 1. So maybe the replies to this post will be more illuminating.
As for women’s rights, there are obviously still problems that women face everyday, including discrimination when applying for a job, but that sort of sexism is usually implicit (does that make sense?), technically illegal, if that’s what you’re asking, and I would imagine it’s pretty watered-down, but I’ve got no experience in the workforce eheh. We’ve still got a ways to go but I don’t think we can be far back along a list of countries in terms of equality.
don’t forget we’re not The Authority on Canada
We’re just a couple of girls with a few mild opinions and an over-inflated platform from which to spew them
It’s a bit of a personal question, but if you don’t mind answering, I’d be interested!
Or or do you know someone who has?
Interesting fact- Statistically, ~1338 of you have won the 100$ gift card.
For all you other losers, what’s the best prize you’ve won?
Anonymous asks:sorry but could you explain the "ain" vs "en"?
canadian french has a different accent and intonation/pronounciation than European french sooo in Quebec, the ain/en sounds in words like ‘pain’ (bread) and putain (aha) are pronounced with a sort of nasal-y “ain” (which i cant do, to my shame)
someone from France would pronounce it with a more open(?) ‘ahn’ or ‘en’ sound
do i sound biased well neither is right or wrong or worse or better theyre just different
i hope this helps :)
