CANADA DAY

Peace, order, and good government

Canada was created to serve the interests of the British Crown .... like it or not ... that is our heritage.

Personally ... I have no problem with this fact ..... on the whole we've managed to do a pretty decent job running our affairs. At least up until the advent of Trudeauism and the erosion of individual rights in favour of the Marxist concepts of group identity and such crapola as promoted by feminists under the cult of "politically correctness".
So remember this ... On Canada day ... it's not about groups of xyz-hyphen-Canadians .... it's about free individuals ... it's not about ANY political party or agenda .... it's about free INDIVIDUALS.


Quotes from Wkipedia.. (with apologies to purists)


The British North America Act, 1867 established the Dominion of Canada by fusing the North American British colonies of the Province of Canada, the Province of New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. The two subdivisions of the Province of Canada, Canada West and Canada East, were renamed Ontario and Quebec, respectively, and were given equal footing with New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Parliament of Canada, as representation by population was accepted for the Canadian House of Commons, as was a notion of regional equality in the Canadian Senate, with the Ontario, Quebec and Maritime "regions" receiving an equal number of senators. This creation, or Confederation, was done to counter the claims of manifest destiny made by the United States of America, for the defence of Britain's holdings.[citation needed] American threats were evinced by the invasions of the Canadas during the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Fenian raids.
Prior to the BNA Act, 1867, the British colonies of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island discussed the possibility of a fusion to counter the threat of American annexation and to reduce the costs of governance. The Province of Canada entered these negotiations at the behest of the British government, and led to the ambivalence of the Province of Prince Edward Island, which delayed joining the new Dominion for seven years. The constitutional conference, ironically, was held on Prince Edward Island, in Charlottetown.

Section 91 of the BNA.... authorizes Parliament to "make laws for the peace, order, and good government of Canada, in relation to all matters not coming within the classes of subjects by this Act assigned exclusively to the Legislatures of the provinces". This gives Parliament residuary powers to enact laws in any area that has not been allocated to the provincial governments. Thus, when analyzing each matter of jurisdictional dispute, it is with the mind that if it is not enumerated, then it is within the de jure authority of Parliament.

but those are OUR presidents, not somebody ele's.

Canada, the great nation it is, has some homegrown heros more deserving, if you ask me, than some birthright nag.

maybe its just that the concept of royalty offends my american 'all men are created equal' sensibilities.
