For at least 30 years white people have been treated as second class citizens in this country.I used to love this country,but it has gone down a dark road that I cannot follow.

Totally agree! ANd if your from the maritimes your a 3rd class citizen! I had to leave there 7 times due to economic reasons and when I move to the bigger centre do I get FREE HOUSING, a government job, free french classes, etc from the government of canada????? I also have friends who are canadian and are out of work and they are ripping mad as well. And if your christian you are mistreated now as well, even though it is the christians who made canada since the beginning.

Totally agree with you Jak and Janice. It's a total travesty what is happening. I've noticed more and more examples of incidents like this happening in this country. I even started a thread called "Racism against white Canadians"

http://www.topix.com/forum/ca/vancouver-bc/TC...

I added this story to the post. People need to wake up and realize there IS racism towards white people and no-one is ensuring they are not descriminated against like other races.

At least from reading the article it seems to state you have a 'legal' immigrant problem. Would you consider taking some of the US's 11 million 'illegals' on ? Here they get section 8 housing from the gov. Ironic, section 8 used to meam 'looney' and it appears Canadian and US laws tend to the looney side.

..... The very many so-called "Christians" do NOT follow the lifestyle of Jesus, nor his requirements, but they follow the various so-called "Christianities" that were invented after Jesus had been crucified.

White men are the only demographic in Canada that you can be told to your face you cannot have this job because of who you are and it is legal.In fact,discrimination against white males has been government policy since about 1980.It is no longer about who is the best person for the job at hand,but who looks best in a photo op.

The RCMP is a classic example of people being hired to please special interest groups.They went from a respected organization to a country wide joke in about 25 years.

“The applicant alleged that the decision to expel him from the shelter was discriminatory in that the decision did not appropriately consider that the applicant had mental issues that contributed to the behaviours that led to his being asked to leave,” Whist said.

No surprise that the one "human-rights complaint" that isn't mocked on topix comes from a white guy who's "discriminated against" ... If he's white it must be legit, otherwise it's typical PC bs and entitled immigrant/minority whining, amirite?

What a joke.

It's been pretty uncomfortable being a white person in Canada for the last 30 - 40 years. But we'll soon be a minority and when that happens, perhaps we'll move higher up the priority list for government services.

I just sa a tv news piece about a restaurant in Burlington Ontario (?). They are tacking on an 18% gratuity to the bill of all French speaking customers. The manager said they are "rude" and "never tip". All the sudden our Mexicans aren't looking so bad.
