    FOX Airs Program Mocking and Slandering Canadian Soldiers In Afghanistan.

      At a time when we are bringing home our fallen soldiers on the Highway of Heros - men and women who gave their lives in an American-led War on Terrorism - Fox Network aired a program which I think was called "Red Eye", in which a group of people sat around laughing and...

    Australian Definition of a Canadian

    My niece in Australia sent me this.  I love this definition of a Canadian, and want to share it here with you:   "You probably missed it in the local news, but there was a report that someone in Pakistan had advertised in a newspaper an offer of a reward to...

    What a terrifying day it has been.

    I was 5 minutes from where everything went down today, and it was all so scary. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the soldier who was run down in Quebec two days ago, as well as the soldier killed in today's shooting. Such an awful, trying day for us here in...

    Most admirable and unquestionably Canadian:

    during the shooting in the Parliament building today, several MP's grabbed spear-headed flag poles to arm themselves against a shooter with some kind of rifle. Most likely it would have been futile, but as Canadians they would not just "bend over and take it".

    Canadian, Eh?

    When I lived overseas, I remember people asking me on a daily basis, 'where are you from?'. I always proudly answered 'Canada" to which they would ask 'So you live in an igloo and wear parkas?' SERIOUSLY??? I am always astonished at how little people from other countries know...

    Some of you have messaged me asking

    where I'm from -- I'm Canadian, from Montreal actually. No, I'm not French, I'm as English as I can be living here. I do speak French though. Although born here, my family is from Italy so I do hold that very close to my heart and speak Italian as well.

    I've been here since birth,

    except for a year and a half traveling in Europe and North Africa. I noticed that many Canadians express pride in the fact of their homeland. That's just a matter of geography. However, if we don't soon get rid of this semi-fascist government, I may have to find a better place...

    Canada is like The Hulk.

    Making us angry is a really, really bad idea. Last time someone made us angry, we fought China to a draw on the hills at KapYong. The time before that, we beat the hell out of Germany and Italy. Dieppe, Normandy, Malta, and Ortona come to mind. Before that, Germany again. Vimy...
