Many Canadians were shocked to see the scenes of furious protesters on the streets of Ottawa and the blockades of border crossings across the country. Citizens concerned about vaccines have gone so far as to block access to hospital emergency rooms, protest in front of schools and propose overturning the federal government. Groups have channelled their anger online against religious groups, women, First Nations and even their neighbours. It’s so un-Canadian, or is it?
Why are we so angry? Caustic and sometimes violent attacks are being made against the media, doctors, scientists, politicians, and democratic institutions.
What is underlying these over-the-top emotions? What does it augur for our future as a society and a country? What needs to be done about it?
