Sir John A and Tommy Douglas
Within our woke society, if we are to remove Sir John A. Macdonald we must remove any edifice concerning Tommy Douglas.
Tommy Douglas supported eugenics and traveled to Nazi Germany in 1936 seeking additional “socialistic” knowledge because he supported much of Hitler’s socialist policies. Douglas’s thesis, entitled The Problems of the Subnormal Family, embraced eugenics along with forced sterilization and segregation for people of “sub-normal” intelligence and morality. Tommy Douglas proposed a system requiring couples seeking to marry to be certified as mentally and morally fit. Those deemed “subnormal” because of low intelligence, moral laxity or venereal disease would surrender to state farms or camps while those judged mentally defective or incurably diseased would be sterilized. And we call Tommy Douglas the “Father of Health care”.
