Jason Kenney believes we live in a Canada where people who declare their loyalty to Canada when taking their Citizenship Oaths should do so with FACES uncovered- should do so openly. No veils.
Having been born in Europe, I have been a Naturalized Canadian since the 60′s. I was only 7 years old when I became a Canadian. My parents swore my loyalty in my behalf. Some day I hope to it again on my own, even though it would be only ceremonial for me, because I am as Canadian as a Hockey Puck. But I cannot imagine participating in a citizenship ceremony without having the Canadian judge and the newly minted Canadians being able to SEE my face and to see on my face my deep appreciation for all that this country is about. This country is NOT about people hiding who they are. We not hiders. We not subservient. We are not serfs or slaves. We do Not subordinate our freedom to any human being. Those of us who are of faith, submit only to a higher power, which most of us call God.
Thank you Minister Kenney, for standing up for our values, our traditions and our Country. – CA
One of Canada’s finest columnists has died. Her final column expressing gratitude to her readers is one that every journalism student needs to read. She loved her craft and the readers she touched. Listen to the link below, where I attempt to pay tribute to her.
Winnipeg Mayoral Election – Judy Wasylycia-Leis calls her opponent irresponsible for pledging to get rid of severance cheques for politicians who aren’t being severed. What’s irresponsible about saying people who choose to leave political office should not ask taxpayers to give them bonuses for doing so? Let’s tell the truth. It’s not severance. It’s legal looting. What’s irresponsible about calling for an end to it? Please read the report by clicking on the link below and let me know what you think.
