I thought that the expression "DP" (displaced person) became obsolete by the late 1960's. 'Just like all the immigrants'?
Having said that, let me assume the role of a liberal: This article is nothing but vicious, racist stereo-typing. But not as bad as Cliffy's comment.
The greatest Canadians we have in Canada are Military and ex military people.
OK, so there's one or two men on horses in eastern Canada, that's not many. In Vancouver, far as I know, there are zilch. That's not too many either. It's tough to find anyone who died up to the meetings that made Confederation and Canada in 1867. The year 1867 is key, that is the year that Canada began as we know it. We all happily drink this kool-aid because it is our story.
Pre-1867 Canada is a vague and nebulous concept. Specific groups like to look farther back, like the military, but it doesn't add up to much amongst us unwashed masses. They have the wrong kind of kool-aid, we spit it out.
You two guys are so logical, correct, proper, and wrong. Countries ignore many things that do not go with its cultural flow. You can see the trees but not the forest. It's why we let Quebec pave over the Plains of Abraham, the huge victory of 1759 that determined our fate and made us British and not French. Who cares, and we're not British any more, and there was no Canada in 1759 so it fades away, it no longer has any meaning to us. Call it cultural amnesia/censorship.
All of that stuff is well known historical fact and is taught in schools. Paving over something doesnt change what happened. Look at their license plates "Je me souviens". I'm pretty sure thats in reference to the Plains of Abraham.

I always thought that mean't " I can't drive".
And they weren't allowed for years to turn right on a red light. Too preoccupied with history I suppose.
Ummm, Upon careful reflection, I am thinking that only ex-military personnel should be able to hold a Fed Gov office of Minister.
And certainly Prime Minister !!!
Losers tend to remember history better. Look at the Irish.
