Be careful of what you say and how you say it or you might offend someone! We seem to be a country walking around on eggshells when it comes to political correctness! Apparently I ‘m not alone in this belief, the majority of Canadians believe that political correctness infringes too much on their freedom of expression, a new poll suggests.
The numbers released Monday from the Angus Reid Institute show that 76 per cent of respondents think political correctness — loosely defined as the avoidance of certain words or actions that might offend marginalized groups — has gone “too far.”
Eighty-two per cent of Canadians over the age of 55 said they shared that view, compared to 78 per cent of those between 35-54. Sixty-seven per cent of those 18-34 feel the same. Huff Post Canada has more here!
What do think? Have we taken things too far in effort to be politically correct? (Deb)
