Canada’s esprit de corps

What truly impressed me was that Ukrainians that I know do not try to hide that Ukraine has problems, and there is lots of work that needs to be done. I have always thought that esprit de corps — the sense of pride and loyalty for one’s group — is Canada’s greatest problem. Not because being loyal to your community or group is bad, but because it could blind your eyes from the truth and make you reluctant from openly speaking about the problems within your community.
