Never have I felt the chasm with my industry more deeply than with the coverage of queen Elizabeth. For orgs that claim such emphasis on “balance” to offer such one-sided coverage, bits of critique appearing coz we insist… phew. I did my bit. Pls read:

My colleague @alespassafiume spoke to a few Indigenous leaders what they felt about the passing of the queen. Here goes: thestar.com/news/canada/20…

Thanks for putting this out there, Shree. For an industry that evangelizes “critical thinking” and “balance” in an almost cult-like way, I’ve only seen inconsistent traces of either over the past week and a half.

so well-put, Shree: "Polite, is it, to ask those who lost life and limb, land and wealth, ancestors and children, and even their own histories to mourn the very symbol of their suffering?" it is such a painfully stark reality and the constant denial of it can only be intentional

Thank you @ShreeParadkar for time and time again showing the courage to speak out when your peers are not— especially when it creates personal vulnerability. Wanted to acknowledge we see you and thank you for this!

Thank you for this amazing piece. Last year, we watched as statues of Queen Victoria and QE2 were torn down by cheering crowds. This year, we are being told to mourn that same person and praise the system of constitutional monarchy in 🇨🇦. It's sick, and hurtful to so many

This is just a great piece. Articulates some of my own feelings and then some, and asks questions I feel many of us are afraid to ask ourselves.
 
 
“Polite, is it, to ask those who lost life and limb, land and wealth, ancestors and children, and even their own histories to mourn the very symbol of their suffering?” 💯

as a long time viewer of @BBCWorld I too wondered what was going on- to me it reminds us to a hard look at the #statusquo within our institutions

I’m sorry u feel there was too much attention paid to the person who was Queen for 70 years. If u want people to be compassionate to your cause perhaps not ridiculing what means just as much to others as your cause does to u.
