The debate is basically between the idea that.
The United States and Canada are good places to live and have some solid laws and customs. If you choose to live there you should make an effort to accept them.
One that has some emotion behind it is Christmas. I don't think anyone cares where the traditions were lifted from or who is responsible for a tree in a house.
The thing is some of us would like to be able to continue to have a tree set up and decorated in a public space to celebrate the season of peace and joy.

My town. Christmas celebration this past year. No christmas tree.JTFR wrote:I don't care if its Jehovah Witnesses, Jews, any ethnic minority, any religion...when you are in a country you adopt its customs and norms.

Well at least the normal americans do anyway.
No, americans assimilate people. I don't agree fully with JTFR on this one though. When you come to canada, you ACCEPT its customs and norms, not ADOPT. Accept them and don't complain about them.
This is just one example of things that are being changed by the force behind a "politicaly corect" movement than seems to be over stepping it's boundrys.
Some things are/were obviously in need of repair (calling someone a name or slur because of race) some like the "fertility tree" if you wish, are not.
