Well, they've pretty much been swallowed up by the Progressive agenda now but at one time what Bernier says here would have been taken for granted in Canada:

“In a free society, immigrants have the right to cherish and maintain their cultural heritage,” the platform states. “However, that doesn’t mean we have any obligation to help them preserve it, with government programs and taxpayers’ money.”

I'm curious because if I don't have these 'values', is the PPC going to make me GTFO? So I'm wondering what these values are, or where I get them so I'm sure that I'm 'Canadian'. And being like a 7th generation Canadian, I'm wondering where I'd be going to. Would 1/1024th of of me have to go to Germany, and 1/128th of me go to England?

So I'm wondering what they are, and how they are 'Canadian' as opposed to USian or Norwegian or Nigerian.

You take a bit from each and incorporate it into the nations and personal values. Over time it morphs into a particular thing that becomes regarded as Canadian Values.

Very broad explanation.

The problem arises when shifting values among the populace happens one group desires to be and or viewed a certain way while another wants something different. Generally it's small or simple things at first but over time the 2 or more groups/sides notice they are becoming more and more different in their outlook and perception of things. Currently that's part of what's happening in the USA. IMO

That's the thing. My values will be different than yours, and different than The People's Party, and different than the nice (hot) Nigerian immigrant down the hall from me - but the general things we all hold as morals won't be any different between us.

So what are 'Canadian' values?

But it's not who Canadians are. All I had to witness is the growth of The Heritage festival over the decades to see that. We revel in our differences. We embrace our differences. We respect our differences.

Perhaps it's the growth of the Heritage festival that shows us what Canadian Values actually are?

Note too: "The United States" had a booth at the Heritage Festival for the first time, this year. [B-o]

Tolerance and acceptance... something a few of us here are clearly lacking.



I know, that was very intolerant of me. But you're allowed to say things like that when you get older. :oops:

You didn't mention Timmies. That's it for you. The PPC will send you back to the mother land or mothership or wherever it is that spawns llamas.
