A 'catter on another thread has posted many things Canada has done and continues to do wrong. It detracts from that thread, so I though this should be made available. Here it is.

They dump human turds, in their original shape, consistency and flavor, in the Georgia Strait, along with 35.6 billion litres of urine and other filth every year. They turned Howe Sound into a bathtub of dioxins and sulphide metals. They clearcut ancient forests in swaths of 100 hectares or more, right up to stream beds and on steep slopes. Oh, don't get me started. They're not hurting anyone else.

We did and do many dreadful things -- putting native people into residential schools, interning the Japanese, and generally being like other nations.

On the other hand, we did burn down the White House, so there are good things to be said for us.

The real problem with Canada is that it is a country held together by very weak bonds, and it is always on the verge of falling apart into the awaiting arms of our neighbours to the south. It is happening again right now, and I fear the worst.

Peter T.

The "october Crisis" of 1970 is a shame on our history as far as I'm concerned.

The over reaction that lead to the invoking of the War Measures Act which suspended all civil liberties and rights which resulted in midnight raids and incarceration of citizens with no reason is rather horrific when we stop now and remember. In contrast it is a shame that the 4 murders of Pierre Laporte during that crisis (absolute cold blooded in it's exucution) did not serve more than 10 years for the crime.

Good thread Bruce.

I was in Montreal during that period. About 400 people were held without charge. Many members of the artistic community--left leaning folks, and mostly French. I was braced a number of times on the streets when I had my guitar with me. Had to open the case a few times to show what I was carrying inside. Was always a Martin D 28.

Lets not forget the 'head tax' on the Chinese and the passengers aboard the Komagata Maru who were denied immigration status because they were non-white British subjects.

...and yes, I fear that Canada is only a breath away from the same fate that has befallen Britain, the U.S. and Australia. The politicians are corrupt and think nothing of lying and spending our tax dollars as if it was their own hard-earned cash. Thieves and liars all of 'em!

While the Canadians - actually British Troops - did burn the White House, this bit of enthusiasm was condoned in land warfare back in those days, both sides did it. This particular act was in retaliation to our troops crossing over the border and burning a small town called York some time earlier.

Additionally Canada is great at maintaining old traditions. Some years ago when I drove across much of the Trans Canadian Highway, I stopped at Winnepeg for some local celebration, and visited for a bit. While walking around a bit, I noticed a man in a complete RCMP old time dress uniform, red tunic, dark riding pants, Campaign - Lemon Squeezer - Hat, Sam Brown belt, and tall boots. Having read some Mountie stories, and listened to *Sgt. Preston of the Yukon* in my earlier days I took a couple of photos of him and was about to move on when I notices something. Sticking up from behind his right shoulder was something I could not readily identify. It looked like a twig or small swagger stick, but I thought that was an odd place to carry a swagger stick. As I passed on, I looked back and discovered that the object that I could not identify was the antenna of a small VHF two-way radio, clipped to the shoulder strap of his belt, behind his shoulder.   

BTW, you can say what you want about the Canadian National anthem, but I am reliably informed that the last three words are *NOT*, "Drop the puck!"
