I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.
John Diefenbaker (From the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960.)

Ah…did he pledge that before or after he dismantled the Avro?
Another stupid wanker selling out to the bloody yanks.
LOL!!! … well, we can be thankful to the words Lynn, and I post them with pride!! Hopefully they will inspire few others to think about what we have to protect and uphold!
Most of us do. I wonder what they are thinking when the rattle off those words?
Adding up the potential pension money, or the value of networking and how that will fill the office safe?
‘Cause they ain’t thinkin of no Canada.
Where do they place their hand? On their butts? ‘Cause it ain’t over their hearts.
Maybe all that 2010 Olympic propaganda wasn’t for us, it was them trying to convince themselves? A “take my advice cause I’m not using it” kind of thang.
What does Brent Butt’s (Corner Gas) Dad say?
Dief, was one of my heroes as a child, he had a true love of our country. I have to wonder, how many Canadian have actually read those words and understood what they meant and just how important they are and should be.
I think those words need to copied and sent to all of our politicians, federal, provincial and municipal as a reminder on a regular basis. I suspect, many of them do not even know them.
Yes Stan, I agree. Integrity, truth, justice, common sense. All our elected officials might also be guided by the following quote:
“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”.
Sir Winston Churchill
Ivana, trouble is they do, but for the wrong reasons.
…never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”.
Except when caught in a bald face lie (HST implementation) and when hands are caught in the cookie-jar (GC drunk driving and Crusty Clark’s BC Rail scandal).
They never give up trying to steal from the citizens, never give up getting pay raises and bonus/perks, and they are like bulldogs with lockjaw regarding their “position” and rights there to (I’m thinking of Ida “chow down” Chong).
Let’s face it. The majority of people in politics these days isn’t for making things better for Canadians and BC’rs, it’s about THEM, more money for them, more perks, more reasons to indulge on the taxpayer’s dime (“but we have to have lobster for dinner, it helps us focus on ocean-type topics..”).
We need to reign in this govt spending on things (fighter jets is one that comes to mind, but locally, we need roads and infrastructure fixed) that WE THE PEOPLE haven’t even been informed of, meanwhile they’re reaching into our pockets again and again for money THEY want for some project that we don’t even approve of.
The frustration just keeps building with this NDP / LIEberal back and forth with neither side supporting the people.
The fact that the ads by the LIEberals on the HST (stick-figure ads) are being paid for by money that they claim they didn’t have for schools, hospitals or daycare services, just shows where their priorities are at, and it’s not with the taxpaying people of this province.
VOTE YES TO NO HST!!!
We always knew Campbell was working for Harper. They have a very close relationship. They have came out of the closet, to make it public, rather than behind our backs. Campbell assisted Harper, with the destruction of BC. Campbell thieved and sold our assets. BC people don’t own our vast natural resources, the giant corporations do. Campbell, Hansen and Harper, thieved the HST from the citizens, to give to big business. The three of them colluded on the HST scam, long before the BC election.
Harper owed his best buddy Campbell, for aiding and abetting him with his evil agenda. Harper gave Campbell the convicted criminal, a lying, deceiving, thieving, corrupt, evil, s.o.b….A very cushy job as, ambassador to England. But, we also must consider, Harper had a 3X convicted felon working for him as well. Harper is every bit as evil as Campbell. Both of them are dictators, they lie, deceive and govern by oppression. No different than, Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini.
Canadian people were warned. If Harper wins a majority, we can kiss Canada good-bye, and that’s exactly what is going to happen to this country. Harper is giving our Canada away Over half of Canadians, did not want Harper as P.M. They don’t believe Harper won the election on the up and up. How Canadians could not see: Our Constitution is ignored. Our Civil Rights and Liberties have been taken away from us. Democracy and Freedom, is not on Harper’s “radar”.
The American citizens are angry, regarding the three country’s merging. Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, as one big country. They despise Harper, and will fight the NAU, to the last ditch. They also said, the U.S. was just waiting for Harper’s majority, to begin the merge, slowly at first. They say, Harper’s election win was rigged, and he should be tried for treason. In other words, they hate Harper.
Wikileaks has also said, the American politicians say, Harper is a petty gasbag. He is arrogant, stubborn and impossible to work with. Every meetings of Nations, Harper always manages to piss off everyone attending. Harper has embarrassed Canadians. He shamed us in Copenhagen, he lost Canada’s seat in the U.N. He refused to co-operate with the other country’s, at their last meeting. Harper’s head has now swollen, ten times it’s size. He is a war monger, with a huge big mouth. Canada is now in two wars, Afghanistan and Libya. He and his big mouth, threatened Russia over the high Arctic territory. He has harsh words for, Iran, Pakistan, N. Korea, regarding WMD’s.
What ever happens, hang on to your hats. The people of Ontario are as angry now, as the BC people are. There is trouble over the senate. Harper’s own cabinet, are not agreeing with him.
It seems, we easy going Canadians have had, about enough of corrupt politicians, slavering for greed and power and their, to hell with their country’s people attitude.
If you read: Harper at Council of Foreign Relations, in New York. You will see, he is going to dissolve Canada. You can also read: Harper delivers speech on, Global Governance for Canada.
Did Mayor Diana Watts really win the last civic election or not — or are Surrey’s voting machines just as corrupt as the ones in the US?
