    Default SJW Watch: School board removes 'chief' from job titles "out of respect for Indigenous peoples"

    I think this is going way too far. Does the title "Chief" belong to Indigenous peoples?

    Is every word going to end up banned for one reason or another?

    Toronto District School Board removing 'chief' from job titles out of respect for Indigenous peoples | CTV News

    "Canada's largest school board says it is phasing out the word "chief" from senior staff's job titles out of respect for Indigenous peoples.

    The Toronto District School Board says it has been working on removing the term from job titles for a few years, and is close to eliminating it completely."

    There just doesn't seem to be any end to this mindless PC crap.

    Where did the word "Chief" originate then? I'm bloody sure it wasn't in North America, among the "indigeous peoples".

    Indigenous people In Canada are much better off because of the European settlers. The Europeans brought science, literacy, engineering, medicine, agriculture, architecture, philosophy, and democracy. Why do white people constantly need to apolagise for making the world a better place?

    This may be about Effective Communication rather than Political Correctness.

    All english-speaking countries now have a problem with people from non-english-speaking backgrounds who've learnt their english off of the televison.

    They're literate enough to read the red-tops, they speak english with the local accent and phonetics - and all the slang - and they understand the simple things. But they're totally lost with official terminology and phrases (and the worse thing is that they don't say it).

    It's bad enough here in London but it must be a particular bad in Canada with its -English Bilingualist Policy and the large indigenous population.
