I AM CANADIAN!

They ‘ALL’ made us proud! Way to go CANADA!!

I AM CANADIAN!

Hey.
I’m not a lumberjack,
or a fur trader…
and I don’t live in an igloo
or eat blubber, or own a dogsled…
and I don’t know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I’m certain they’re really, really nice.

I have a Prime Minister,
not a President.
I speak English and French,
NOT American.
and I pronouce it ABOUT,
NOT A BOOT.

I can proudly sew my country’s flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, NOT policing.
DIVERSITY, NOT assimilation,
AND THAT THE BEAVER IS A TRULY PROUD AND NOBLE ANIMAL.
A TOQUE IS A HAT,
A CHESTERFIELD IS A COUCH,
AND IT IS PRONOUCED ‘ZED’ NOT ‘ZEE’, ‘ZED’!

CANADA IS THE SECOND LARGEST LANDMASS!
THE FIRST NATION OF HOCKEY!
AND THE BEST PART OF NORTH AMERICA!

MY NAME IS JOE!
AND I AM CANADIAN!

 

Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.

    John,
    You must have been proud of all the Mounties marching in the Closing Ceremonies of the Olympics. I did notice a laser or two strapped to the uniforms, but the moose, beavers and Americans were quite docile. No need to use them. The Mounties can show the Russians how to use them in Sochie in 2014 — as a supplement to the AK47s, RPGs, tanks and rockets when they fight off the Chechen rebels in the Caucasian setting…..

    Quite a show and performance by the Canadian athletes. Now you know why Harper called off Parliament. He put in a good showing, kept the Liberals from dissing Canada during the Olympics and improved his image — and all will be forgiven when Parliament convenes. Vive le Canada!!!

    You can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig. :-) Seriously, I thought using the RCMP at all the flag ceremonies was a little over the top considering there ‘bad’ reputation of late. I wonder if most other Canadians thought the same?

    The Chechen situation is an upcoming nightmare, knowing how ‘serious’ the two players in this quagmire take ‘their war’. We take no prisoners, we ask for no quarter. :-(

    … all will be forgiven when Parliament convenes…
    I don’t think so! As a matter of fact, I believe a few thousand demonstrators will be on Parliament Hill come this Wednesday voicing their displeasure with King Stephen… and rightfully so! Our problems and his past actions have not disappeared, they have just been in hibernation, and like the mad, hungry bear they will soon be wanting their pound of flesh. Harper and the conseervatives, are that pound of flesh!
