Canadian Heart And Soul.
It appears that Iggy is off to England to show his Canadian credentials to Europe. You know, he is going to trumpet how great Canada is because he has been there for what...five years now? He is going to pledge his undying love of.....?????? Right. The guy needs to understand Canadians and he is off to Europe to find that one proud Canadian with a flag on their backpack.
Liberals talk about Canadian values like they are the only ones who know what they are, but they forget about the Canadian heart and soul that makes our country great.
Our heart and soul is those farmers who toil night and day to get food to our tables.
Our heart and soul is those volunteers who donate their time to causes that actually help people live a better life.
Our heart and soul is reflected in the First Nations people who keep their traditions while integrating them into Canadian society.
Our heart and soul beats strongly when one of our hockey teams might win the Stanley cup. (Come on boys, surely one Canadian team can win it back!!)
Our heart and soul is our land. I can not picture Iggy or his wife planting a veggie garden and tending it with love. I can not feel any connection to Iggy and our land. I am talking about Canada here, I am talking about the soil, the earth, the water, the wildlife that make Canada home. I get no sense of home from Iggy. No sense of what makes Canada great. No sense of understanding that Canadians are about the land, the beauty and the inspiration the land brings to your very soul.
While lefties protest at the G20, chanting "the whole world is watching", they leave me cold, they have no cause, they are juveniles coming out of their basements to protest their inability to adjust to real life. They are the misfits of society. If they really wanted to help the poor people of Africa, they would go there and help, but lefties are good at protesting, and very bad at actually doing anything to fix the problems.
The Canadian heart and soul is our land. Those who can feel it, and protect it are the real Canadians. The land has a pulse, you need to stop and listen to it. This land is alive, and Canadians need to keep it that way. We need to be careful of who we put in government, on ALL levels, because one bad decision can suck the air out of the land and leave it desolate.
It is up to Canadians to make sure we protect what makes us Canadian, our vast and diverse land.
