Ok, I know this is old news, but I have 3 kids, a job, and a house to take care of, so I got to this a little late.
I am very proud that Canada finally took a stand and walked out on the Iranian Presidents speech at the UN convention. I think it shows that we actually have a backbone rather than the lap-dog persona that we carry around with us most of the time.
What do you all think?
I though they finally became the number 1 exporter of Maple Syrup in the world and wouldn't let anyone else take that title.
I think exactly what you think - bout time a backbone was grown - wish USA would grow one - stand up for themselves instead of all those little countries and start taking care of their own
I found our amiability to be more like acquiescence. We were just bending to every whim not wanting to rock the boat. I kind of felt a bit lost in this country not knowing what we stand for. There was this line that I really fell in love with;
"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything"
I kind of saw Canada fitting into that line in a way. I hope now we can move forward knowing that we can be a stronger country with values above and beyond being liked by all, or having the most strip clubs per cubic kilometre.
Yeah, by the sound of it, a definite step towards mutual understanding and betterment of international relations.
Great for Canada, you're absolutely right. However do not knock Canada too much because no matter what our stance has been....
We have the greatest country to live in. Our children can grow up in relatively safe surroundings, we have health care, although there are poor we as a combined lot try to help our neighbors and friends.
We have roads to drive on, the buildings here are not riddled with bullet holes as a lot of the warmongering countries have...
I do not agree with a lot of the decisions the politicians make but we can live with the knowledge that we have freedom to do whatever we would like, freedom to say what ever we want, worship in which ever ways we would care to no matter what color, what background or what roots we have.
So lets keep Canada as great as it is
You are certainly right Zsusy Bee, I would not trade my country for any other. I am proud of our system most of the time. The fact that I can stay at home with my baby, paid, for a year, the fact that I am covered for all my hospital visits and stays, the fact that we are basically an easygoing and safe country to live in, makes me really proud to be a Canadian.
The part that I was annoyed about was our willingness to bend to the whim of everyone. The part where you say we are free to practice any religion in freedom is a little grey to me though. More and more, they are taking religion out of schools because they don't want to offend anyone, and that bothers me. It is part of our history and part of who we are, so I don't why we should be made to cover it up.
anyways, we are still lucky, thats for sure
The Canadian delegation did exactly the right thing. If one has any Canadian roots, pride ought to have risen high.
I still cannot comprehend how a racist with delusions of world domination gets legitmitized by the UN. And also, Larry King interviewed him last night, which only serves to give him a platform to spew his brand of craziness couched in a soft spoken & casually polite manner.
Bad news headline I heard this morning is that the terrorist suspect arrested in Colorado the other day & transported to New York has family connections in Canada. Mississauga, Ontario.

It's occurred to me that the political forums here are beginning to sound a lot like the religion forums.My side is so right and your side is so wrong. Never the twain shall meet in the middle.So if you agree there's an analogy here, would you describe yourself as politically on the Christian...

What happened to Emma Lazarus’s “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses …”?I did not think I would live to see the day when people would flee from hatred and persecution in America – again. The Underground Railroad brought slaves to freedom in Canada in the 19th century. Now,...

Why Are So Many HGTV Shows Filmed In Canada, Eh? Just curious. I love HGTV. Anyone know many of their shows are filmed in Canada? The Toronto area seems to be a place they are often doing shows.
