It’s a shame but I can read the writing on the wall… Canada, the country I was born in, the country I have lived my 58 years in — is dying. Replaced by an ill-defined, identity-conflicted, mash of disparate communities bound by little more than a passport emblazoned with an ill-suited coat of arms.
So what happened? Well the short answer is the Trudeau family happened. First, in the person of Pierre Elliot Trudeau 1919-2000, Canada’s 15th Prime Minister who spear-headed the birth of multiculturalism; and Second, Justin Trudeau b. 1971, Canada’s 23rd and current Prime Minister who is spearheading the birth of a post-national Canada.
If you are reading this, it is likely that you are familiar with the concepts of The New World Order, Globalism, and post-nationalism. Nonetheless, a simple reminder of what we were contrasted with what we are is warranted.
One need only take a look at Wikipedia’s article on multiculturalism in order to suss out the salient facts (but try and avoid the overt socialist bias as you read through the Wiki entry. I leave it to the reader to spot the various instances).
In the 21st century Canada is often characterised as being “very progressive, diverse, and multicultural”. However, Canada until the 1940s saw itself in terms of English and French cultural, linguistic and political identities, and to some extent Aboriginal.
I would argue that Canada’s traditional take on ourselves lasted long past the 1940s. I am old enough to remember singing “O’ Canada alongside the Lord’s Prayer at the start of each school day in the early 1960s and concluding each of those school days with “God Save the Queen.”
“The Black Pigeon Speaks” is an influential voice for the “alt-right” on You Tube. His take on Canada’s Post-Nationalist identity is required viewing for anyone interested in this topic. Please do yourself a favour and see:
A point the author makes is worth repeating here. Our nation’s coat of arms represents the founding ethnic identity of our nation.
Canada’s genesis is predominantly British, forged alongside an uneasy alliance with French speaking, Quebec, and our admittedly marginalized Native peoples. This identity is represented in our national symbols, the languages we speak, and in the laws of our land.
We are not the United States… we have no 2nd Amendment. Our country was legislated into existence. It was not born in revolution. And yet, much like the United States we are a nation of immigrants. First in the form of Empire expanding explorers – then settlers, mostly in the form of the ethnicities represented by our coat of arms. Then by later arrivals of German, Ukrainian, Polish, and other European ethnicities – and finally by Asian populations predominantly Chinese and East Indian.
There were hiccups along the way of course… I remember being shocked at seeing a number of Asians lying spread-eagle face down on a Vancouver street in the early 80s. A dozen or more cops stood over them with service revolvers unholstered. A startling reminder that new arrivals often ghettoize themselves into their own communities separate from the wider population. No! it’s not a racial thing … but it is most definitely an ethnic reality. We’re all familiar with the rise of Little Italy’s and Chinatowns etc… in American and Canadian cities. Yet that scene in the 1980s was something I had never seen in Canada before.
Today we see it replicated in Toronto, Ontario and in Surrey, British Columbia. If I read or hear of a shooting in Toronto I safely assume it is Black on Black crime born of immigrants from the Caribbean. If it occurs in Surrey, South Asian violence is the guess. Up North, I assume a First Nations incident. It’s sadly predictable. It’s as easy as it is for our American cousins to ID the nature of a shooting if it occurs in Chicago, Baltimore, or Detroit. And No! It’s not a racial thing!
Of course all this pales when compared to a single catalyst that changed Canada forever…
If Helen of Troy was the face that launched a thousand ships then this photo reproduced ad nauseum over mainstream media is surely the body that launched a million migrants. Of course, the dis-information that accompanied the photo was off the scale. He was wrongly reported as having fled the war ravaged country of Syria where in fact, he had departed Turkey. His plight was described as desperate beyond all measure when in reality his death was entirely unnecessary and completely avoidable.
If any proof were needed you need only ask where the boy’s father is? He’s in Syria? Of course the mainstream media paints his return in the most heroic terms possible:
AYLAN KURDI’S FATHER: ‘I WILL STAY AND FIGHT FOR KOBANE’ source: Newsweek
“Aylan Kurdi’s father in emotional return to Syria after tragic death of wife and sons” Source: Mirror
It makes a good story but remember they exited from Turkey not Syria.
Regardless of the facts, the image was used to fuel a massive influx of migrants into Europe and other western countries including Canada. Videos and articles are all over the Internet alerting those that want to listen that this massive influx on a level never seen before likely spells the beginning of the end of the Nation State.
One of the big players in all this is George Soros… he has helped finance the migrant crisis and other destabilizing social movements such as Black Lives Matter. Once again, I turn the reader’s attention to “The Black Pigeon speaks” he has produced a succinct summary of George Soros in an entertaining video he entitles:
That Soros is public enemy number 1 when it comes to wanting an end of the Nation State there can be no doubt. Simply do an Internet search on “National Borders Are The Enemy”. Nuff said.
And now Canada and Soros are dancing together. Although I abhor the CBC their perceived legitimacy by a portion of our population makes their reference here of some use. See:
THE CHANGING FACE OF CANADA
Back in 1965 Yours truly (the tall boy 4th from left back row) and Davey (his last name escapes me) were the only visible minority kids in our class. Fast forward to 2011 and you are hard-pressed to find a white kid in the mix. The school is 12th Avenue Elementary in British Columbia.
Canada’s changing demographic will present challenges. There is nothing wrong with other cultures and most definitely nothing wrong with other ethnicities. However, without an appeal to a united ethos or creed we are subject to great division, strife and even physical harm.
I can see where this is heading… Nation States are beginning to cede power to the United Nations. Power that is relinquished is almost impossible to regain. Yes, a unified ethos is called for but I’d feel better if it were one born of our traditional Canadian identity and not one unilaterally dictated by the UN and regurgitated wholesale by our leaping gnome of a Prime Minister.
Diversity is our Strength?
Not really. Despite how many time Trudeau may enunciate those words. I’m not buying it.
IT HAS BECOME increasingly popular to speak of racial and ethnic diversity as a civic strength. From multicultural festivals to pronouncements from political leaders, the message is the same: our differences make us stronger.
But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam — famous for “Bowling Alone,” his 2000 book on declining civic engagement — has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.
“The extent of the effect is shocking,” says Scott Page, a University of Michigan political scientist.
Of course, there is no going back. And now Canada readies itself for the largest influx of Islam in its short history. Growing up I do not recall ever seeing a single mosque. Now, I suspect it is a sight I will have to get used to.
One last image … my family, both of my adopted heritage and that belonging to my biological origins. It embodies what Canada once was — and is represented by our now outdated, Coat of Arms.
So long Canada; we hardly knew ye.
