The nation.

Long live Canada.

If anyone can find it anymore. My beef today is immigration.

When i renewed mt lliscense this year, I attemped to do so online. At the last step. I was stopped because I didnt have an immigration number.

Hello. Im not an immigrant, Get a grip. There might actually be people born in this country!

Another thing I rembember was A christmas tree was taken down in a provincial court because it offended somone else's religion. To that someone else, if you dont like it, go the hell home! Welcome to my country. Adapt to the standard that is there, or leave. No one asked you to come in the first place.

All too often we see the government twisted and bent trying to adapt to religous beliefs an values of immigrants. Each twist it does to compensate these people, it looses a bit of itself. Canada is quicky becoming less and less of a nation, and more of an imigrant holding facility.

Another thing. I understand sometimes things may not be going so well in your home country. If thats the case, go ahead. Immigrate. Go through the process. When you come here,bring your family. Your spouse.. your kids. Maybe your family. But. Becoming a sponsor for every sister, cousin, 2nd cousin and bringing them to Canada so they can go on social assitance, I dont think so. (Yes, the group that does this knows who they are.) For a family to come to Canada, I dont mind. When one person lands, and sponsors 30+ members. Its a bit much. Let them go through thier own process.

When you land in Canada. Respect people's values and yours will be respected. Remember, you came here for a reason. Because you likely thought it was better then your home nation. Lets keep it that way. If you dont like something you see here, too bad go home, and express your own values, and let others express thiers freely.

I miss the days where the National Anthem was played freely in schools, and people stood at attention when the flag was raised. Or lowered. I miss the days when we played "God save the queen." Sure. Shes a figurehead now. But It should still be respected. This is our heritage as a nation.

I got inspiration for this from another friend of mine's blog. Ma'iingan. View her rant here: ( The official lyrics for our great nation is:

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

(From Heritage Canada's website :

(The french one is also availible here:

They should not be mixed, moulded together. If anything, A french version should be held afterwords, depending where you are. But this is just my opinion. The bilinugal version is approved however, and seeing as how the meaning is the same, I dont have a beef with it.

Canada needs to spend more time "standing on guard for thee", when it comes to Canadian Values...

Ill still be here, Standing on guard..
