    A Canadian;

    A Canadian can be English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German,
    Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. A Canadian can be Mexican, African,
    Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, Arab,
    Pakistani, or Afghan.

    A Canadian may also be a Cree, Metis, Mohawk, Blackfoot, Sioux, or one
    of the many other tribes known as native Canadians.  A Canadian's
    religious beliefs range from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu,
    or none.  In fact, there are more Muslims in Canada than in Afghanistan
    .  The key difference is that in Canada they are free to worship as each
    of them chooses.  Whether they have a religion or no religion, each
    Canadian ultimately answers only to God, not to the government, or to
    armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.
    A Canadian lives in one of the most prosperous lands in the history of
    the world.  The root of that prosperity can be found in the Charter of
    Rights and Freedoms, which recognize the right of each person to the
    pursuit of happiness.
    A Canadian is generous and Canadians have helped out just about every
    other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in
    return. Canadians welcome the best of everything, the best products, the
    best books, the best music, the best food, the best services, and the
    best minds.

    But they also welcome the least - the oppressed, the outcast, and the
    rejected.

    These are the people who built Canada .  You can try to kill a Canadian
    if you must as other bloodthirsty tyrants in the world have tried but in
    doing so you could just be killing a relative or a neighbour.  This is
    because Canadians are not a particular people from a particular place.
    They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom.  Everyone who
    holds to that spirit, everywhere, can be a Canadian.

    I`m already against the next war.
