I wonder how they feel about Falun Gong members joining?


There's a good litmus test to see if these people are just toadies of the Chinese Communist Party. :wink:

What's wrong with them wanting to preserve their heritage? Every second word out of your mouth is England this or England that. You have NO problem preserving your own heritage but are against others doing the same themselves? Can you spell hypocrite?


Oh, that's a strike and a half right there! :P

But you know what Clog is going to say to that;"but that's because England is our ancient culture, not China!"

No it's our culture.

Don’t like it move to somewhere you feel represented. With your genealogy that would be mars.

P.S. England is not our culture; we are not like them, but they are a part of our history.

I have. We are not them, and they are not us although they are a big part of our history.

A big part? Without England Canada would not exist. I think that is more than just a big part. You could argue maybe the French too at least for exploration and some culture they had. But without these French elements we probably would have ended up being a better country anyway. :P Canada could easily do without the Chinese, Ukrainians, Blacks, Italians, and others. They never founded this country that is why they came here to be part of it (At least they should be). However the English came here to build it and so did the French before we took them over. They planted the seeds the rest came to live under its shade.

This can be even said about the United States too it was founded by Englishmen and fought to fight for their rights even as British subjects. Without them though the USA would not exist. If England never set sail for North America is more likely we would have a few more countries here mostly Spanish (Maybe that would work for you? :P ) and French based ones and perhaps the Indians would have actually held onto their countries. But there would be no Canada though.

Wrong. We'd just be one big French Territory.

Well to be fair and democratic if they want to form their own party nothing in the constitution says they cant. But so long as it isn't promoting hate for the other races it is ok. Lets not forget the Chinese has played a part in Canada's history, of course not even close to what England or France has they were the ones that built the railroads. I would like to see some of their idea's that they bring to the table and what they think about some of the main issues that the other party's fight about. Hopefully they wont be like the Green's and just be a one issue party and talk about major issues such as health care and the economy.

But there would be no Canada though.


So what if Canada technically wouldn't exist if the British hadn't taken over New France? Technically, Britain wouldn't exist if the Anglo-Saxons hadn't come. Would Iceland exist if the Vikings hadn't shown up?

Do the Icelandic or residents of Greenland still do everything the Norse way? Or even the 'English' do everything the Anglo-Saxon way? Are the British still reverent of royalty and believe in the the God-given right to rule?

No, of course not. Why? That's because countries/nations evolve over time. Just because a nation was founded by another is no reason to forever follow in its footsteps. Yes, we share a language (sometimes debatable), rule of law, parliamentary system and a dozen or so other facets of our culture, but that does not mean we are forever indebted to them or must follow their ways? If that were so, we'd have a far larger Muslim population and a curry shop on every corner... :wink:

Under our laws and rules, this is legal. Canadians may not like this, but as you said in a previous post, technically, you are free to start the Britainnia Forever party and run in elections too. The people behind this 'party' are not doing it to win a provinical election (which for a fringe party should be impossible), but are trying to highlight issues that they as immigrants face every day. Why do we let people with Master's/Doctorates immigrate here and then have them work in a 7/11 or drive cabs? It's a total waste of skilled labour. Maybe if we had a better system, some of these people could do something to alleviate your perceived flaws in our health care system...or maybe you would prefer to to visit a doctor and not receive some 'Chinkish' treatment... :roll:

How is that not Canada? Canada is what we make it and if it is just French then Canada is just French.

Well then you could say that about any country. But it wouldn't be the Canada that exists now though and would be a completely different country.
