These new doctors are paediatricians so maybe the pressure's different and they'll be okay with the mayhem that must be Amazing Race Canada. The male side of this team also says he doesn't mind doing things that are morally bankrupt (but his worse fear is global warming?), which is a weird thing for a paediatrician to say. I mean, would you want someone working on your kid who said stuff like that? It seems that I've already formed a not too friendly opinion about these folks.
And now I'm truly concerned with the make up of the teams in the Amazing Race Canada. There is a definitely lack of colour now, a huge skew towards the white. Sure, the folks that founded the government of Canada were Europeans but this country was built through immigration, and not just the Europeans who came after Jacques Cartier. Canada is known as an open country, a landscape of multiculturalism and for a signature show to focus on the European side is a bit of a cop-out. Sure, we want the best teams, but I saw a lot of audition videos for this race and there were plenty of really great ones featuring folks who were also visible minorities. Hope the last two teams are a bit more colourful, if you get my drift.
And like I said before, there should be at least one First Nations person in this group because they are a large part of this country; they are our founding nation. First Nations folks lived here for thousands of years before the Europeans came and history shows that they helped many Europeans survive this country. So far it doesn't look good. But we got two more teams being announced tomorrow. Let you know what I think at that time.
