Real Canadians are open-minded and tolerant; especially when it comes to immigrants and immigration. Diversity is celebrated in Canada but these disgruntled "Canadians" will never realize how much harm can be caused by generalizing a whole community.
Sikhs are to fault for their negative attention, but it's our governments fault for not monitoring them, and other incompatible groups. White countries should be for white people, not for scummy trash like Sikhs, and other freaks of nature!

Do not try and compare Jews and what they have accomplished in the western world with your people. Do not even go there asylum seeking terrorist runaway.

I'm sure that Sikhs view themselves as favourable, but no one else does.
Sikhs are a militant, political, cult that is loyal to a "Sikh nation" just like the Islamists are loyal to Islam.
That is why Islamists and Sikhs cannot assimilate into modern society or act civilized.
Sikhs won't even fly the nations flag at their temples, probably the same for Islamists.
In what way are Sikhs disloyal to Canada?

Hindus in the U.S. and Sikhs in the UK, respectively, have been heralded "model minorities" and compare favorably with the Jews regarding socioeconomic status, political power, etc.

Oh, and I'm neither a Sikh nor a terrorist nor an asylum seeker...but please carry on generalizing.:)

Like all other religions Sikhs can wear their head gear in their communities during religious holidays.
But they should adopt the Canadian dress code when in the public at large,,,,, just like it is stated in the Canadian immigration manual !!

This commander is only one Sikh, what about being equally represented like other religious groups. This just goes to show how great and accomodating Canadians are but in return the Sikhs just continue to show their arrogance!! I say fk em!!

I fail to note any "disloyalty" in any of that.....perhaps "incompetence" is the word you're looking for?

Disloyalty would be Muslims calling for Sharia in the west and bombing the civilians of their host countries.....while living off of welfare and dole.

If you look hard enough, I'm sure there are plenty of good things to say about all immigrants, but it's unarguable that Sikhs in Canada have proven to be a regretful addition.

Not only have they been involved in terrorist activities, but they are gangsters to say the least. Now this seems to be isolated for the most part now to the B.C. area, but already in Alberta their numbers are growing strong, and with the numbers come the problems. All East Indian, and Pakistani people tend to lean towards organized prostitution activity in their host countries. Inducting our children, and using drugs to aid them in this disgusting pursuit of dirty wealth.

In fact all immigration seems to do is weaken Christian countries, perverting them with filth, and taking us further and further away from our beliefs and values. Like I've said before, immigration is ruining this and many other countries around the world. It's unnatural and it just takes the numbers to realize the impact. That is of course when we decide to wake up to it, and that is happening all too late!

The Sikhs religion mandates that someone baptized is required to wear the turban at all times, so your suggestion makes it conflictual and further impedes the assimilation you wish to see.

Sikhs are a tiny minority nationwide, less than 1%, how is it sensible to expect equal representation in the army and other civil service sectors? Do you think there are tons of Christians serving in the Indian armed forces?

Ummm, the Indian army seems to like to attack Christians. So maybe they are biased towards Christians?

I really don't give a sh^t what the Sikh religion mandates. If the Sikhs can't except Canadian values and culture, they should fk off back to where they come from to wear their rag. Canada is not for every one. You either adapt to the culture and values that made Canada a great country or you fk off!! It's really all that simple Tamil Tiger.
Of course I wouldn't expect you to understand because you know nothing of building great countries. Tamils are good at getting children to fight their battles and build a sh^thole country.

Christians carry far more than their weight in the Indian army,, that's a fact!!

Immigration to Canada has been good from most western counties as well as from China, Korea, Philippines and a few others.
But immigrants from the south Asian side or middle eastern and other such countries has been a big failure.

Canada must be a lot more selective in the countries it immigrates people from!!

Nah, I have to disagree with all Asians. It's no secret western countries have been warning their people not to travel to the Philippines for example, and Taiwan and such places are not all that friendly to western tourists these days. Asians have a completely different backgrounds to westerners period, and I've experienced first hand racism from all those groups, although most are quit subtle experiences here compared to what one would experience in their countries. Again that takes me back to the numbers theory. At the risk of sounding selfish, I will also add in that white people no longer have a country to call their own. They have been forced to except immigration, and live with it. Like I said it's all about the numbers. Sadly, it is and always will be about the differences.
