    Fortunately, here in Canada, we have maple syrup...

    ...and trees don't have racist origins, so it's all good.

    Honest question:

    What ethnicity is Mrs Butterworth supposed to be?

    Antique bottles that I've seen looked like a middle-aged Swiss or possibly German woman.

    Even after they started using the brown glass, the character was still clearly European:

    I have not seen anyone calling for the abolishing of Mrs Butterworth. Do you have sources for this insane idea?

    Edit nevermind I have seen it. Stupidity at its finest. I this brand is even remotely racist.

    Vidiot ...

    We have black maple trees here in several States as you have in Quebec.

    To be politically correct, we just refer to them as African-American maple.
