“The Penniless Pensioner: Misaligned, Maligned but Marvellous” :Chapter 10: More Editorial Interference from Wuhan Wet Market Publishing: What I Don’t Like About Canadians

I am trying to write my biography here collaborating with the renowned journalist Robert K. Stephen but yet again Wuhan Wet Market Publishing is interfering with my creative process. I received a call from senior editor Natasha Polehead stating I should refrain from comparing Canadians to Indians, Brits and Americans as I will alienate readers and the name of the publishing game is money. You don’t make money by pissing off Brits, Indians and Yanks it seems. I had planned to talk about obesity, politics, culture and a whole lot of comparative points. I signed a rather hasty contract with Wuhan and I have no wiggle room. So what I will do to even up the score is tell you readers what I don’t like about Canadians.

Canadians have many great qualities as well as Brits, Indians and Yanks but of course the all-knowing Wuhan Wet Market Publishing thinks they know better than I do so I can’t praise Indians, Brits and Yanks.

No Canadians don’t fornicate on the beaches of Spain like the Brits, storm capitals and try to hang politicians like Americans they don’t like or cozy up to the Russians like Indians do. They have a quiet superiority complex to the world. The great neutral peacekeepers. The polite and respectful people. They travel in Europe and strut about with their maple leaf flags and think the world will come running to them with open arms. I call it quiet arrogance. And then there are the hidden closets of residential schools, the shameful treatment of early Chinese immigrants and well why go on. Are you happy now Wuhan Wet Market Publishing?
