Toronto lesbian moves to small town Ontario, specificially to MoFo, spots man in turban, befriends him. They speak to Mennonites. Mennonites switch a sermon from German to English so the turbanned man can understand it.
The general tone is one of condescension though the description of the area being "rife" with Mennonites hints at a darker view.

Hmmmm....discrimination on so many levels. Mennonites and Germans have lived in close proximity for years i.e. St Jacobs and Kitchener / Waterloo once known as Berlin

I wonder if they still close King street for a whole week during Oktoberfest? Such a thing won't fly in Toronto. I guess they get away with it because most of the upper eschelon in KW id German e.g the Zehrs family that owns the grocery stores

A draft of my previous post included "the most head pattingly condescending piece I've read this week (and I saw a copy of the Globe and Mail in the lunchroom)". So I'm delighted to see that the Globe picked it up.
