I AM A CANADIAN

I am in the minority in Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto and every casino in this country
I was born in the forties, fifties or sixties, yet I am somehow responsible for some First Nations
people being screwed out of their land in the 1700's!

I pay import tax on cars made in Ontario
I am allowed to skydive and smoke, but not allowed to drive without a seat belt.

All the money I make until mid July must go to paying taxes.

I live and work among people who believe Americans are Ignorant...
These same people cannot name their own country's new territory.

I sleep well knowing that my taxes helped purchase a nice six figure home in Vancouver for some unskilled refugee.

Although they are unpatriotic and constantly try to separate..Quebec still provides most of my nation's prime ministers.

95% of my nation's international conflicts are over fish.

I'm supposed to call black people African Canadians, although I'm sure none of them have ever been to Africa for that matter.

I am being told that paying a 200% tax on alcohol is fair.

I am also being told that the same tax on gasoline is also fair.

I am being told that spending $15 billion to promote the French language in the rest of Canada is fair when the province of Quebec doesn't support or even recognize the ENGLISH language. How can Quebec get away with that?

I am being told that paying $1 million for 3 Stripes ('The Voice of Fire' painting in Ottawa ) by the National Art Gallery was a good purchase, even though 99% of this country didn't want it or will ever see it.

When I look at my pension and realize that I take home a third of what I actually make, I say 'Oh well, at least we have better health care than the U.S.A..'

I must bail out big corporations who drive their business into the ground and say, 'yeah that's ok.'

And When they move all their manufacturing plants and jobs to a third world country and say, 'no problem.'

Canada is the highest taxed nation in North America, the biggest Military buffer for the United States , and the number one destination for fleeing terrorists.

The Lord's prayer is not allowed in our schools anymore because of other religions who chose to move here. But prayer rooms for Muslims are provided.

I am an angry white person.

I am one pissed off taxpayer, who is broke.

I am Canadian!!!

I am a Canadian.

I have worked hard and paid my taxes dutifully and faithfully for decades. I haven't broken any laws, but I can no longer go to work or claim EI benefits, can't go to a restaurant or movie theater, can't take my kid to swimming lessons or soccer, and in a week I will no longer be able to leave my country or fly within it, get on a train, or ship. Many people in my community are declaring openly of their hope for my demise. Because my "papers are not in order" and I have not submitted to authoritarian demand and received my QR computer code, my social credit value is considered low I am considered a second class citizen.

Could be worse. You could be going through that as an English speaking resident of Quebec and be treated like a 3rd class citizen.

Most modern mills no longer want the old growth as they are set up to mill smaller logs . Reason being most of the old growth is long gone .
About 30% of old growth is still standing in areas available for logging. Much more is rotting away in protected areas. Not all old growth is huge either, and some species do not live long enough to make much over 4 ft.
