I figured people who are offended in Canada are the ones apologising for being offended.

'You n-word this that...'
'I find that offensive. Sorry aboot that'

I'd imagine this will be like banning climbing Uluru there will be a small section of people annoyed at the whole thing and it will soon be forgotten. Did those guerilla climbs of the rock ever happen?
God I hate this sort of statement. No, the whole of Australia was going to be out with their pitchforks, day after day for months, complaining about Coon Cheese.

Perhaps whether something done should be looked at on its merits, rather than whether it received a ferocious response for a lengthy period of time, by people that simply want to live their lives?

The cheese was named after the guy himself, for God's sake. Anyone who claims to be offended by someone's name is seriously mentally not all there.

In 20 years lefties will pull down monuments of MLK because the surname "King" will be offensive to descendants of those who suffered under monarchies in the 1500s. Useless perpetual whiners.
EXACYTLY how moronic this is.

There is a new issue in corporate Australia and it goes right down to even small business owners - they are constantly harassed by mafia-like groups who seek to impose their left-wing activism on the brand. People are forced to relent or face personal ruin.

I find it weird that people have an opinion on the marketing decisions of companies.
Really?

Most people understand marketing decisions of food companies for instance to make the product more memorable, sound more enticing, more healthy perhaps.

No one understands a marketing decision which changes a food brand with well established identity in its sector, because a couple fruit loops think it is racist.

The land inhabited by "people-kind".
can't decide if it is annoying, over virtuous, or actually a good thing... sometimes us commonwealth citizens can't decide if we are with 'em or
against 'em... requires a lot of chatter amongst all the classes..

So the next step is to eradicate cheese altogether because it might conjure thoughts of the word Coon.

Apparently KFC are ridding their slogan 'finger lickin good' coz it 'doesn't feel right in these times' :think:

So the step after that is eradicate Chickens, that'll make the vegans happy at least! Oh wait!

Another story from Canada.

HALIFAX — An appeal hearing has been set for a Nova Scotia man fighting the province's decision to revoke a personalized licence plate that bears his surname — Grabher.​
Lorne Grabher says the province infringed on his freedom of expression, but the Nova Scotia Supreme Court said that constitutionally protected right does not extend to government-owned plates.​
The Nova Scotia plate, which Grabher had for nearly 30 years, was revoked in 2016 by the province's Registrar of Motor Vehicles after the agency received a complaint accusing the sign of promoting hatred toward women.​
In a news release, Grabher's lawyer Jay Cameron said the province's decision to revoke the plate is an example of arbitrary and capricious censorship and a threat to freedom of expression.​
