Pleased to see you've toned down the rhetoric a bit and you agree that not everybody here concurs with your philosophy.<quoted text>
There are alot of other people that do feel the way I do. Not every other Canadian, but there are alot. Not every Canadian agrees with homosexuality, agrees with it being taught in sex ed, rainbow alliances in schools, pride parades, same sex marriage etc.....It is a myth if you think all Canadians do.
Not every Canadian is a left winger/socialist either. I see your isp is Windsor....that explains alot, no offense but we all know Windsor is an NDP and union hub. The NDP likes to blame the ills in the Cdn economy on the oil biz. Go ahead, stop the oil sands etc or even reduce it greatly and see what happens next. Manufactruing is losing in this country because it's too expensive to do biz here....take GM's stoppage of the Malibu and Equinoz here soon, or the closing of Electro-Motive...union wages are way too high here, but according to NDP logic it's the fault of Alberta..lol.
Not every Canadian believes in multiculturalism as an official social policy either. That does not mean myself or others are against immigration etc...for Canada has had immigrants for generations. We have been "multicultural" for years, people came from everywhere but for the most part they became Canadian. Nowadays it's "Canadians of convenience"...they have no real allegiance or patriotism to Canada. Also multiculturalism of today is full of political correctness and when it became an official social policy rammed down our throats it began to erode certain cultural values that founded this country in the first place.
Yes, Windsor was a Union town and currently has two NDP federal reps.
That has changed dramatically in the past 5 years however.
The unions are on the run here, and the Windsor area now also has two Conservative federal reps.
So that alone says things aren't quite the way you describe.
One more thing--we don't live in Windsor, but for some reason our ISP routes through there.
We live some distance outside the City in a town called Lakeshore, and our two businesses are in a town called Tecumseh.
Windsor,like every other city, hasn't always been on the right track, but that city currently has a very proactive Mayor and Council who are leading that city in a positive direction.
Regarding the issues you don't like about Canada---in reality things aren't nearly as bad as you describe.
Our country isn't perfect, but it sure beats what's in second place!
We're not doing too badly compared to what's going on in many other countries--including our neighbors to the South.
I wouldn't want to be living in the US just now. Things are much better here, thanks.
