Encouraging people suffering from some adversity or the other, self-imposed or not, to move on used to be considered sage advice.

Striving to forge ahead – what in earlier generations was called “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” – was seen as better than wallowing in self-pity.

Not anymore. Those daring to utter the phrase “move on” are more likely than not to be ostracized, boycotted, shunned, or fired for doing so, especially when this advice is aimed at indigenous Canadians.

Two cases in Winnipeg, one from mid-2021, and the other from last week, well illustrate the corrosive wrath of increasing rates of cancel culture in our country.
