Is It Time To Reclaim Canada??

I think it is great that we, as a country, open our doors to offer an opportunity to anyone who wants to enjoy what we have and to share in the possibilities that are not available in many other places on the planet. I was first introduced to the concept of creating a multicultural society and how it would make us stronger as a nation, when I was a younger man. Being diverse, I was told, was good for us because it widened our scope of the world–yaddda, yadda, yadda.

So let’s see now–There were those who helped build the railway system from coast to coast and in 1824 began to dig the waterway between Port Colborne and Port Dalhousie virtually by hand. Many of those labourers and builders brought their families here from foreign lands taking a huge risk. There were those who wanted to live in Newfoundland when many wouldn’t not because it wasn’t magnificent but because there wasn’t a great deal there, early on, to sustain them. Living off the land was the only choice. But they came anyway because it was Canada. Opportunity waited for them. Freedom waited for them. There was a chance to be a pioneer and a citizen on a grand scale. Our First Nations People were the first real Canadian citizens and pioneers and as such were the first representatives of multiculturalism in this country. They worked hard and many died working hard to build this country into a place where everyone felt as though they belonged and that they were a part of a great plan for equality and opportunity.

There were First Nations Peoples, French people, Newfoundlanders, East Coasters, West Coasters, Dutch folks, German folks, English and Scottish and Irish folks and then came East Indian folks and Chinese folks and Polish people. We have always been a multicultural nation and one which fought together and built this great country–until now it seems.

It saddens me to see what has happened and continues to happen to Canada. We are a fragmented country. People have come to our shores but instead of joining in with those who were already here and those families that had fought for those freedoms we have allowed particular groups to use our charter to destroy us from within–to exterminate us culturally. Any of this beginning to sound familiar? For example we are not free to experience or practice OUR OWN religious beliefs and practices in public places while others are allowed to practice their religions in our schools and on our streets. We are becoming strangers in a strange land. Political correctness is now the weapon of choice. This parliament, with little insight, is guilty of not protecting our rights as they promoted the rights of others in consideration for votes and favours. Our own culture has been hijacked by those who live among us–those who would see us destroyed.

You fill in the blanks about how this is happening and who is making their move. Changes need to be made while we still have some control over our own political process. Twenty-five years ago you would not have been able to find too many people that dreamed of being the minority. Today that is a full blown possibility.

George Walker Bush said, “if you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem.”
Here are 9 things that I believe need to happen:

1. Vote for the candidate who talks about re-claiming our cultural identity. If they are not talking about it ask them why they aren’t.
2. Citizenships need to be earned not given away. You must live here, physically, for 5 years on a registered visa which allows the applicant to work and to experience the freedoms of travel–just like any other citizen.
3. Applicants who are arrested for a major crime and are found guilty are deported back to their native country, immediately.
4. Canadian citizens and applicants would be subjected to the same laws of the land. Each is held accountable by the same judicial system. Refusal to do so or to comply are grounds for deportation.
5. Legal immigrants seeking citizenship cannot own land, houses, businesses or holdings until they become citizens.
6. Non-citizens will not be allowed to vote at any level until they are citizens of Canada. They don’t have a stake.
7. Non-citizens will enjoy the same rights and freedoms as any other citizen. However, this does not include working to limit or ignore the rights and freedoms of any or all others.
8. If someone is not here legally then he/she/they should be asked to leave. Besides, if its so bad in your own country then fight THERE to change things for yourself and others.
9. We need to stop politicizing immigration. Immigrants need to earn the right to stay not give over to a political body that is willing to trade with them for a vote.

Unfortunately there are those who enter our country, not to enjoy it but to destroy it from within. There are clearly spoken groups who have stated that intent. Most that enter Canada come in peace and hope and are hard workers who share our beliefs and culture. There are those who come with malice in their hearts. We need to do a much better job of sending those folks back home. Sometimes we’ll get it wrong-I can live with that. Do we really need immigrants coming into Canada right now–No we don’t-not until we figure out how to do it better.

Anyways, that’s how I see it–Jim

  1. Hi Jim! Great article as usual!

    I just posted a comment below a story that was on MSN.ca from the Vancouver Sun. it is along the lines of what you discussed here. I highly DOUBT they will post it.

    Canada favours temporary residents to permanent: report

    http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/national/canada-favours-temporary-residents-to-permanent-report/ar-AAdRczQ?li=AA521o&ocid=U348DHP

    The top WORST problem in this country is the government does only what is in its own best interest. They line their own pockets and those of their friends. Not one naturally born Canadian matters to them. Not one societal issue matters to them, whether they are Conservative, Liberal NDP, or otherwise.

    When it comes to people wanting to get involved in politics to sincerely make a difference, a situation is created where they get their own “Yes-men” in. They bring people in from other areas that they think the community will like, in order to win that riding. If one goes into the party and wins and tries to do things to actually help local citizens, the party ousts them, sets the person up to fail, or makes them a scapegoat to get rid of them. Every politician that wants to be elected into office HAS TO FOLLOW the party’s rules. No exception.

    We vote democratically for who we want into office in our areas, and the only ones that get in our the ones that the party likes. Hence we have a representative that NEVER does what is in the best interest of the community or their citizens.

    These so-called representatives hire their family or friends to be “gatekeepers” at their offices to sift through local citizens with issues and THEY determine whether or not the citizens get to have an appointment to see the politician. It is the gatekeepers that MIGHT respond to questions or issues depending on the “severity”, and the complexity of the matter. in the end, the citizens are left with their jaws on the ground with no help whatsoever.

    Who did we vote for in the first place? The politicians or the gatekeepers?

    TIED for the WORST issue in Canada is the government ALLOWS people to NOT work. Those of us that put in long, hard, back-breaking hours through the course of our lives drive past these people on a daily basis to see their properties destroyed, junk vehicles and garbage and the like strewn around what remains of the house that was GIVEN to them. Not to mention the children running around in this chaos in filthy attire and obviously in desperate need of a bath.

    Now, not everybody on Social Assistance is included in this rant because there are the mere few that actually need the financial assistance. But there are the remainder that have come from long lines of generations of career welfare recipients, that simply REFUSE to work.

    The government has made Social Assistance so attractive over having a job and becoming a contributing member of society, that so many are lining up for the opportunity to receive these monthly bonuses they hand out freely. The government has created a system where people are rewarded for not working, and having children. Children have become a commodity in this country, leaving the hard-working Canadian-born citizen to work even longer, harder hours, and 2 or 3 jobs in order to survive off what remains after the taxes are scraped off the top third of their wages. Taxes that are used to finance those that refuse to work.

    Canada is screaming for people with trades and degrees because nobody wants to do the work to get them. If there are students that want the education to further themselves and actually enter into a good career or trade, the Colleges and Universities charge such a horrendous tuition that the students have to obtain student loans that girdle them for the rest of their lives. Other than that, there are people entering the work force that want to make top dollar immediately without working hard enough to gain the experience and knowledge needed to deserve those higher wages.

    GREED is HUGE. Companies cut out the average Canadian born citizen and promote employment in other countries to get those that will come to this country to live and work for less than half of what they would have paid the Canadian born citizen. Companies offer PAID travel…. PAID housing…. PAID everything in order to attract these foreigners, who come in droves for the opportunity to make what they consider, “The big bucks”. I can’t blame them for being drawn here for those opportunities laid out for them. It is the government that supports and encourages and evens financially makes it possible for these companies to do this.

    The Canadian government has destroyed Canada. PERIOD. And if anybody stands up to them, they make it a very difficult existence for them. I will be surprised if this even gets posted without being censored in spots, which is par for the course.

    The government brings in people because they make money off them entering Canada. They will make taxes off them. The companies pay the politicians HUGE kickbacks for supplementing wages, and tax breaks they get ultimately for hiring foreign workers. Nothing has to do with the best interest of the Canadian-born citizen. It always has to do with money.

    Then the government cried for years that the population was dwindling and discovered that those that didn’t want to work loved to pro-create, which leaves the hard-working citizens no time, energy, or financial possibility to have children. Keep those workers working hard to support the government, and let those that don’t want to work, build the population.

    We need independents to get into politics and force changes and accountability to those that exist in the incestuous little groups of people at Parliament Hill. Independents that were born with their hands in the soil and carrying the tools of trade. People that were not born with a silver spoon in their mouths.

    How STUPID do the politicians think we Canadian-born citizens are?

    But things are looking up!

    For years the government has been trying to force people out of the rural areas and into the cities so they can have their friends lay claim to the woodlands and other natural resources. They cut most of the services to the rural areas, leaving the people to basically fend for themselves. They try to instigate hatred between city dwellers and the rural people by stating that very fact in the media. They make public only what they want people to believe. They want people to believe…. “City people…. High Taxes. Rural people…. Very Low Taxes. Not fair for those in the cities.!” Then they want people to believe that the “new” laws/regulations for seniors to have to pay for everything (the hard working ones that is), so they get the media to advertise that “Seniors are a drain on Canada’s economy”. Just to validate the governments high cost of living for seniors. Again, only the seniors that worked hard all their lives, meaning they BUILT and SUSTAINED the economy with their own bare, calloused hands, while those that simply refused to work leeched off them. Those on the wonderful Social Assistance, do NOT have to pay what these seniors that are draining the economy have to pay in order to live out the rest of their lives. TAKE THEIR HOMES! TAKE ANY ASSETS! Those seniors must pay for the privilege of living in government subsidized care homes. Oh, but make those seniors wait in hospitals until a room becomes available.

    Government? PFFFFFT. Make laws that only law-abiding citizens pay attention to and are forced to comply with and pay for, while the criminals walk away Scott free.

    That is my rant.

  2. I too feel strongly–a recent blog I wrote:
