INSANE: Trudeau Government Tells Public Service To End Use Of Words Like “Mother,” “Father,” “Mr.,” “Mrs,” Forcing Switch To “Gender-Neutral” Language

The federal government continues escalating the absurdity of their political correctness.

In a change nobody asked for, the Trudeau government plans to ban front-line public service workers from saying Mr., Mrs., Mother, and Father.

That’s according to a report by Radio Canada, who gained access to government documents stipulating the change. Here are key parts of that report:

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 instead says the neutral term of “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.

After the Official Opposition raised serious questions about the proposal, Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos ‘clarified’ the measures, in what amounted to a desperate attempt to backtrack.

Of course, that’s not what the government document says according to the report. Workers are being told that they must use “gender-neutral” language, not that they have the choice of whether to use it. The report notes that the document specifically rules out the use of terms like Mother and Father.

So, what Duclos is doing is simply trying to distract from the truth of the insane order to the public service, hoping people will believe his tweet instead of the actual government documents referenced in the Radio Canada report.

This has been a usual tactic of the Trudeau government, who introduce some unpopular change and then try to distract from what the change really is with some spin, while not actually altering what they are doing behind the scenes.

In fact, reports already contradict what Duclos is saying:

“According to an official, who asked to remain anonymous because they are not authorized to speak on the issue, the new directive is already in place and has led to some difficult situations for civil servants. “It happens that we talk to people and we ask, ‘What is the name of parent number one?’ People do not understand,” said the official.”

So, the policy is already in place, and is already causing problems. Quite different from the claim by Duclos that it’s only about using “gender-neutral” terms when people object. Most people wouldn’t have a concern about different terms being used if someone asked, but what is concerning is the government trying to wipe out terms that are simply based on the facts of human biology.

Instead of balancing the budget, reducing the tax burden, and ensuring our national defence, the Trudeau government is trying to socially engineer our nation. It’s creepy, it’s a waste of resources, and it distracts from the real job of governing Canada.

All most feels like mom is always going to be the parent listed behind dad don’t you think? Makes me feel like they are moving toward the way things used to be where a woman’s name on things with her partner didn’t mean much. I can remember my mother trying once to access my parents joint bank account for some cash and they told her to go home and get her husband because even though her name was on the account he was the primary account holder. That was the day my mother made him split the money in the… Read more »

So you cannot travel out of country, because all other countries need to know if your male or female sometimes if your married and who to. This happened to a lady getting a new passport here in Ontario and she could not travel, had to return home, till she got it fixed. I wonder when we will need new names no female or male names, maybe start numbering us so they know exactly how many peoplekindof live in what was Canada, before we became gender neutral and no more children were allowed to be born.?????????

Luckily, Trump is a far bigger idiot than Trudeau, so not to worry…the world is too busy laughing at Trump to bother with us. That insane monster is the joke of the world right now. As near as I can figure, I think this crap will only matter when filling out government forms? I don’t think they’re saying that we have to verbally address each other any differently. I kind of get it in a way. I think there may be a lot of people out there who have 2 Mothers, or 2 Fathers. I guess there are no proper… Read more »

I also agree with you Janet. I have spent the last five summers in Canada and find the Canadian people very admirable. But I can’t understand why Canada has a Prime Minister (although I think he would rather be called “King” or “Emperor”) who has no qualifications for the position and was elected only because his name was Trudeau. Canada deserves better than a globe trotting, wanna be movie star.

I agree and since parent 1 is probably going to be the father I think all us mothers should ban together and sue the dumb ass Trudeau for insinuating we are 2nd rate. I have said all along I would be glad to trade Trudeau for Trump. At least Trump is cleaning up the Country. Yes he also has some bad idea but Trudeau hasn’t had ONE good idea since he got elected. In fact I doubt if Trudeau has ever had an idea in his life. Get rid of this idiot before he has flooded the Country with ISIS.

My kids better not call me or my wife parent# 1 or 2! That is highly offensive! If anyone at a government office did that to me or my wife, I would severely reprimand them and tell them proudly that I am the childrens father, my wife is their mother, and that I will be extremely offended if I was called anything other that that!

Quote: “Orwell’s novel carries a well-founded warning about the powers of language. It shows how language can shape people’s sense of reality, how it can be used to conceal truths, and even how it can be used to manipulate history. “Language is one of the key instruments of political dominations, the necessary and insidious means of the ‘totalitarian’ control of reality” (Rai, 122). While language in the traditional sense can expand horizons and improve our understanding of the world, Orwell’s novel demonstrates that language, when used in a maliciously political way, can just as easily become “a plot against human… Read more »

Let’s have more such talks advocating increased tolerance not the American oopposite — & while we’re there let me appeal to our PM to END THE BLOODY SEALHUNT (Canada’s Shame) ONCE & FOR ALL.! 4REAL..

This is terrible. No better way to confuse our tide pod eating generation. I never thought the day would come where we could choose our gender. Also, if a man decides to be a women, I think he would feel more respected to be called ma’am rather and a women who decided to act like a man, is still a Mrs. Until she removes her female parts for male.

Maybe leave all the gender issues alone, if someone has a different preference, they can say that which pronoun they prefer, but in the general public, male/female, mother/father, mr./mrs./ms. is all good.

I dont see how that is sexist in any way . As far as im concerned not letting them say it is bigoted towards the English Language . Whats next cant say man or woman terms that have been around since the English language started . If People actually had a brain they would know the terms they where made out of respect.

The reason for this change was simply due to modern family that now could include two fathers and a child or two mothers and a child…. who do you call Mother?
