Robin Collins is bothered by the term “settlers.” I see his point. It sets one community off against another when we should probsbly be blurring the boundaries as much as possible. But the word has negative connotations now only because we hear about the settlers in Palestine who are really aggressive Israelis. If they were friendly, no one would mind being called a settler. It just seems amusing to hear it applied to us urban Canadians.
