OT: Thank You Canada!

in light of the bad news over the last two weeks with the Gades, and sooners negative comments on your great counrty, I would just like to take this topic to state some events that w/o Canada would have never have happened that I'm and every non canadians are turly thankfull for. everyone, feel free to add any if you like.

Niaga Falls meeting in 1904, without it, the civil rights movement argurby wouldn't have happened 60 years later, and they couldn't have it in the US at that time.

The rulings judging the Inuits in Canada which influenced and played a huge role the Mabo decision in Australia in 1992.

Thank You Canada!

Kanga,

please stop watching the history channell, whilst drinking, near a computer with access to this forum.

While we're on topic .. I'd like to thank the United States for 'American Idol'. Without it - my tuesday evenings would be unfulfilling.

Learning from Kanga ?? THINK about that !!!

I don't want to get into another history discussion with Kanga. I'm passing on this thread.

there is more that Canada has done that I’m thankful for, but that was the top two at the time, and I’m sorry for the way I stated them. But I, and I hope others, wanted to share some love for the great progressive wide north. :wink:

and Statik, Idol was originally a British show that the Americans stole, like Millionaire and weakest link.

thats 2. And honestly, im not too thinkful for the mabo decision in australia.

Since we are the topic of thanking countries. Thank you Canada for your great casinos and for the great clubs. And lets not forget the great Canadian women. :smiley: God Bless Canada.

Thanks Canada for the Civil rights movement???? Now the US has illegal Mexicans in our country that think they have a say in the day to day operations. Waving Mexican flags all over LA, thats almost as dumb as me waving an American flag in downtown Montreal, its stupid. I have no idea where i'am going with this. I wish the US protected its border, culture, and language as much as you canadians do. Now let's use common sense picture me in Kanga in downtown Montreal wanting to become Canadian citizens what flag do you think is right to be waving? If we were waving an American flag you guys would be like these idiots want to be part of our country and they are waving American flags. They don't know any history of Canada and have no pride in our country, they just want to be here to play the system.

Those elitiest don't care about the US let's welcome in the new slaves to america, the Mexicans. They can't speak our langauge and they are not qualified to do anything else but clean toilets and load trucks. After we give them the okay to become citizens i think we will be called the United States of Mexico.

Is there room in Canada for an American CFL fan?

:lol: HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA :lol:

Um...that was a joke, right?

Actually, the US civil rights movement, though it didn't start here, had a lot to do with Canada. The border was the original destination of the Underground Railroad. Runaway slaves who were captured -- even in non-slave states -- had to be returned to their owners, so they had to get to Canada to be free. After the Emancipation Proclamation, freedom got a lot closer: they just had to get to the Northern ("Union") states.

whoa, peter, be careful what you say.

besides, Mexicans are hard workers (so hard that they take away the jobs of high schools and College students) at those jobs. The Law right now is a bit too hash to them. Heck, until it, we had a sweet deal going down with Mexico.

and I'm not in favor of annexing Mexico, so don't ask me.

With those kinds of views? I should say - absolutely not. That was one of the most ignorent, racist, and american self-righteousness post I have probobly ever read on this forum ...

You epitimize everything that is wrong with America - and everything Canada strives NOT to be.

Eric Beach Hoteal in Fort Eric, Ontario, July 11 1905, founding meeting of the Niagara Movement, the century's frist organized effort of African Americans to demard full US citizenship.

I'm not saying that the civil rights movement would have never happen, but w/o this historic meeting, it wouldn't have happen in the 1960's.

you can goole or wikpidia this for more info.

and here another thinkg I'm thankful for becase of Canada (Australia does this to): STATE'S RIGHTS!!!

Sorry Statick but I disagree with you again!
I understand what Peter is trying to say and I pretty much agree with him. I believe what you are refering to (want to see)is Canada's biggest problem to day.

ro1313 - you agree with this ... ???

"Those elitiest don't care about the US let's welcome in the new slaves to america, the Mexicans.

You are going to defend the stupidity that IS that comment? go right ahead .. Stay clear of me (thats for your own good - not mine).. Considering the United States and its history of slavery - one would be a *******idiot to make that comparison.

ro1313, tho your beliefs MAY be similar to this gentlemans (and i use this term loosely) ... I would definately recomend that you rethink your position before publicly siding with a racist (and I don't use that term loosely) - that comment is dripping with stupidity and ignorence.

I'll be exiting this thread - as topics like this are probobly not best spoken via a forum ... especially a CFL one.

WOOO
I missd that
I though you were talking about comming here and waving flags from there!
I dont agree with that at all!!!!!!
MY mistake! Big time!

Hehe .. Yea, I kinda was surprised by your position ... You rarely make a foolish, unthought, or off-the-cuff styled remarks - it seemed quite out of character ... which is why I questioned ..

all good ..

So you know how to Google...so what.

Yeah, I don't think he was everything Statik was accusing him of...having said that, my bro is a restauranteur and he swears by having Mexicans and Columbians in a kitchen 'cause they work their Habaneros off and they aren't some babied CIA graduate. So...they don't just load trucks. They're valuable to a lot of Americans and their comapanies.
