Trudeau to axe “Mr. and Mrs.” and “mother and father”


If you thought Justin Trudeau learned his lesson from the #peoplekind episode, or the fact that his “gender” budget didn’t budge his plummeting poll numbers, or the revelation that staggeringly low numbers of Canadians actually call themselves feminists, then you were wrong. The Liberal efforts to do away with all gender-specific terminology in order to ingratiate themselves with the tiny segment of the Canadian population that actually cares about this “issue” have continued apace—and this time, terminology like Mr., Mrs., and Ms–as well as mother and father– are on the chopping block. From the CBC:

Service Canada employees who interact with the public are being asked to stay away from terms like Mr., Mrs., father and mother, and to use gender-neutral terms in their place, CBC News has learned. According to documents obtained by Radio Canada, the French-language arm of CBC, front-line staff must now “use gender-neutral language or gender-inclusive language.”

“This avoids portraying a perceived bias toward a particular sex or gender,” says a copy of speaking notes prepared for managers and team leaders.

“It is important that Service Canada, as an organization, reflects Canada’s diverse population and ensures that the views and interests of Canadians are taken into account when we develop policies, programs, services and initiatives,” says the directive.

The new guidelines also rule out using terms such as mother and father because they are “gender specific” and say the neutral word “parent” should be used instead. The same goes for honorifics such as Mr., Mrs., and Ms., and in both languages. Instead, employees are being directed to address customers by their full names or ask them what they want to be called.

This is precisely the sort of nonsense that irritates a lot of people, many of whom aren’t even particularly conservative, but simply don’t like to be bothered with all of the virtue-signalling and political correctness. Even the Toronto Star’s Chantal Hebert noted that Trudeau’s latest move has been met with ridicule, noting that,”The immediate reaction was overwhelmingly derisive, including from people otherwise supportive of efforts to normalize gender diversity. Some program hosts took to calling each other “comrade.” The Quebec government quickly shot down the notion that it might follow the federal example.” Further, Hebert wrote, Trudeau’s insistence on blundering into these issues may be opening up “a new front in a culture war they may yet come to regret.”
