Our Canadian cousins

I’m taking a moment to compliment our Canadian fellow bloggers and activists (note the blog names in my blogroll) who are doing such a superb job of advocacy for their folk.

I notice the spirit and earnestness in some of the posts about the situation in Canada, where it seems that ‘old stock’ Canadians are in the process of being replaced. This is no ‘conspiracy’ nor is it ‘fake news’ as the crazy left terms everything they don’t like. Trudeau himself has admitted that replacement of old stock Canadians is on the cards. How much plainer does it have to be made?

We’re in a similar situation, though perhaps in slower motion. But where is the passion and spirit on our side? If only we could muster a little of that for our cause. Even if we think all hope is lost, as so many people say, it’s necessary to go on, even if only to act as though there is still something that can be done. To say that it’s hopeless becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

As I said before in a post about this subject, in my experience the Canadians are usually very amiable people, well-mannered and by our standards, seemingly mild. But to my surprise they seem to be speaking up boldly, and I know that in today’s world, that’s taking a risk, when ‘our’ governments do not want truth-speakers to be heard.

At the Canadian border, as some of you may know there is the ‘Peace Arch’, which is meant to honor the peace between America and Canada, and the long unprotected border — which sadly is being used by those who enter our countries furtively. But the inscription at the Arch is ”Children of a Common Mother.” The Canadians are our brethren genetically, at least the Old Stock Canadians are. Bone of our bone, flesh of our flesh, even more so than many of the current inhabitants of both our countries.

We should form a closer bond with those who are our kin, and those who are facing the same dubious fate as we are.

Keep up the good work, Canadian brothers and sisters. You are an inspiration to me at a time when I am in real need of it. I think that goes for a lot of us Americans, if we’d only admit it.
