Not likely...

Let me see...Bruno Gerussi played Nick and Robert Clothier played Relic, the bad guy with the neat boat. Sadly, both have left us now.

That fishing boat might be a tough draw for Persephone or Relic's jet boat - even towing in tandem. Gee, I wonder if one of our subs might bump a head on it?

The Seven Years' War (1756-1763) between France and Great Britain ending with the Treaty of Paris in 1763 where we "The English folks" kicked Frenchie's ***.

The insurance company will fly the owner out to pick it up, then call it even.

Maritime Law is a funny old bird it'll be interesting to see what if anything does happen.

I suppose using it for target practice would be ideal but who wants to see Canada's military embarrass themselves yet again?

Funny. That boat has been adrift for the best part of a year. It has weathered the best the Pacific could throw at her in that time and she doesn't appear to be listing or anything. I wonder what condition the engines are in. I doubt the owners would do much to recover the boat and I'm guessing the insurance company is not intrested in the scrap value. If a private concern were to salvage the boat and get it back in shape to sail again, it might be worth half a million....maybe more......Who knows?...

Yup... we kicked "frenchies ***", what we didn't do is go to war with the First Nations. Haida Gwaii is First Nations.

I certainly won't spend my money to benefit anything of the Haida Nation products or tourism.. the best protest these days in financial. Rush Limbaugh learned that lesson.

Funny you should mention Limbaugh, as I think he too would use 'gay' as a derogatory term.

You certainly have an "interesting" way of expressing your thoughts.

Actually, I think think the term "gay" is misused personally. Gay is to be happy, somehow it has been warped into something dirty, or homophobic.

Let's start calling homosexuals, homosexuals and call being happy gay again.. so we can all be Gay.

YOU didn't use "gay" in that context. You used it in a derogatory way.

Nope we put them on reservations.. basically to forget about them and stole their land.

Well, that's a lot different than we beat them in a war. So which story you going to go with?

You are talking apple and oranges here, Quebec and Indians.. I stated both in my post..

We won a war against the French as I earlier stated. We basically slaughtered and forced native Indians onto reservations.. I would say that resembles a war in some context, just with little or no opposition.

Our History is what it is.. some I agree with, some I am ashamed off.. nevertheless, Canada's British heritage should not be changed to appease political correctness.

I figure as fussy as you were over the word "gay" you might have used the word "slaughter" in correct format....

Oh, yeah. Of course. Clearly you were referring to "be happy" when you used the term here.....

Normally I would never correct you but I think you mean "selectively fussy". Cuz it all depends which way the wind is blowing.

As you can see from above, you didn't diferentiate between the French and the First Nations.

Your ashamed of Canada? Really? But you told First Nations to "get over it already". and before you deny it, look at the first quote above.

Yes ashamed of what we did as Canadians.. but just like Blacks in the USA who 5 generations later feel the Government owes them something. I mean seriously.. they are so far and removed from their ancestry.

It happened, it's sad, and hopefully people learn from history and do not repeat the same actions... now get over it and move on.

So, how about you be more specific about what they are supposed to "get over".

Actually gerryh; you need to "get over it.."

You talking in circles. First Nations are generations away from the original Indians who inhabited North America, they should be so dam lucky to be born Canadian.. and quit trying to claim what they clearly have to rights to any more.

Hey, you're the one who threw in the comment as an addendum to your OP. If you don't want people to question the things that you say, then don't say them. Really simple solution.

By the way, Gerry is not the one who's talking in circles.

Look let me set some fact straight.. gay, homosexuals, fudge packers, taco eaters, whatever the hell they are.. I don't care.. what people do to each other behind closed doors is their business.. they don't effect my life one bit, and I don't care about their causes..

So I am guessing that you and Gerry are in the closet, but still defend the homosexual cause any chance you get like some of these bible thumpers and Muslim sympathizers.

I mean you do take the term "gay" pretty personal.

And I don't care that you don't care. But using the terminology in a derogatory manner screams homophobe to me. You could have used many other words to make your point. You chose to use that one. I wondered why. Or does taking personal responsibility for the choices one makes only apply to other people?

Nope not the reason why, not that it matters, and I'm not defending a 'cause' here. Just objecting to what I view as poor judgement in use of a term. And trying to determine whether it was the natives themselves you had an issue with or gay people in general, or perhaps both.

Quote:

Yep I do take it personally, not unlike referring to a woman as a dog say, some things just irritate. Surely you, of all people, should understand that.

Just wanting tio get it straight where you stand on things. This, as well as the following makes it abundantly clear where you stand on both Native issues and GBLT.
