I remember that one meme that said “what is Canada better at than America but never gets the credit?” And someone responded with “racism.”


And now the Jewish Hospital is the best hospital in Montreal.


that’s fucked up. I went to a Catholic school from preschool – 8th grade and my favorite teacher there was Jewish. After every Jewish holiday we’d ask her what it was all about and would not have class that today because she’d spend the whole time talking about. And she brought us apples and honey for one of them, don’t remember which.
