The Forgotten Canadians

Canada was built on immigration, as was all of North America. Immigrants who came here for a safe and better life.

Dear editor,

Canada was built on immigration, as was all of North America. Immigrants who came here for a safe and better life. Escaping the violence, the dictatorship of their countries and their tribal or religious wars. For many years this was happening and it worked. When they landed here, they retained some of their culture and religions. But blended in with all other cultures and we ended up with a “true Canadian culture”.

Many of these immigrants, who now come to Canada, do not want to accept our culture. They want to change it, to suit their own beliefs. By doing so and with all the different nationalities, our Canadian culture is being eroded and lost. Of course I or any other “Old Stock Canadians”, cannot say anything about this. We must remain silent and keep our heads buried in the sand. Our governments cannot help us with this, because they are too busy catering to the newly arrived in our country. Neglecting our homeless, our starving children and the senior’s citizens who built this country. Even allowing these new Canadians to retain a dual citizenship. How you can pledge allegiances to two countries at the same time is beyond my comprehension.

It is a fact that many of these immigrants who moved to Canada are taking over sections of large towns and cities in Canada where drugs, violence and bribery is the norm. Many of these people have been raised where this is the normal way of life. That is what they saw every day in their country and they now bring that with them to Canada.

We need to keep helping those who are being tortured and killed in their countries. Many of them who are just bystanders of these wars. But we must ensure that they are screened properly and that they are true refugees!

But if you are allowed into our country, please let us Canadians keep our culture. Stop demanding that we change ours to suit yours!
