A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian … Famous [infamous] quote from Trudeau when he was in a discussion with Prime Minister Harper.
Here is another famous [infamous] quote from Prime Minister Trudeau “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength.”
How about a different style of incantation … I am a Canadian, I am a Canadian, I am a Canadian. I am persecuted and my home is a garbage can. I exist in adversity all day and night…how can I re-qualify as a Canadian … Even a refugee, legal or illegal is never homeless?
Westcoastpugnaciousfeels guilty in noticing how long it has been since we wrote about homeless and tent cities. Two truly damaging blights that infest so many Canadian communities. Just the last four years, the headlines have been around Tax Evasion and/or Tax Avoidance, and other immoral not illegal ripoffs by politicians etc, etc.
