Happy Canada Day!

Celebrations are already underway nationwide so in honour of our country’s 148th birthday, I hit the streets to see what you think is the best part about being Canadian.

Take a sack full of money, Peter, it’s expensive

Prince Knight said, “what does that say about the rest of the world?”

Exactly what I think about the rest of the world too … except maybe Australia. Always wanted to visit there.

The best part of being Canadian is seeing the best PM EVER doing well. Don’t believe the lies being spewed by the media (they are UNIFOR). I am metis (not on the trough) and my ancestors were Ojbawa/Cree/French/Irish and settled originally in Ontario from Alberta. Tough to watch Ontario now but hopefull that PM Harper will still be in power and defeat these marxists/unionstas. My ancestors would be appalled at what is happening in Ontario. I am a proud 8th generation CANADIAN. I would encourage others to be Canadian.

Yes, Peter, it is a sad state of affairs. And to think that Canada is still the best country in the world in which to live, what does that say about the rest of the world? Pretty sad and screwed up, if that’s the case, because it’s pretty sad and screwed up here…

Prince Knight, when measuring the good of a thing is compared to how it is not as bad as another thing … well,that is a sad state of affairs, I would suggest.

Oh Vlad, Lol, sometimes you slay me. My favourite time in northern Alberta was watching ice racing cars on the frozen lake after I got my license in 79. Afterwards we would take our own cars out and learned to drive on an ice track. Best experience for winter driving

Being Canadian to me meant that I could roam freely as a child playing in swamps and creek beds ,bringing tadpoles home overnight in a jar. Growng up in a small Ontario town on the Ottawa river during the 1950s was wonderful. I wish the sense of fun and freedom that prevailed then could somehow be restored.
Things can never be perfect, but oh how I miss those freedoms now. The nanny state mentality takes the fun out of everything . So I will break has many nanny rules as I can today and get down to some real fun. After all, I am a Rebel!

I used to have a long list of why it was great to be Canadian. With political correctness and hate speech crimes and abuses by Human Rights “courts” and alternate sexualities being forced upon us and government interference in everything, that list is pared to a miniscule fraction of what it was.

What’s the best thing about living in Canada? It’s worse pretty much everywhere else…

Fraser & Kelvin, and here I thought I was an old timer! I was only 8 in 1970. :) Happy Canada Day gents.
commented 2015-07-01 12:54:57 -0400
Yes I did and I’m having fun pocking at the memories we have when police served us instead of ticketing us when a joke was just a joke. When Canada was celebrated with families when a parade was a Canada Day parade not a fag parade
commented 2015-07-01 12:32:17 -0400
Ah Fraser, my list is to long the fun I had in the late 60’s and early 70’s. Did you hear that comedian Jerry Seinfeld won’t play university’s because they don’t get his comedy with their political correctness attitudes? Pretty sad huh? I feel sorry for the young folks now a days. HAPPY CANADA DAY my friend. Now to stop posting and start celebrating our great country!!!!!!!!!!

Return with me to yesteryear when man was free and government stayed out of you business
Come back to 1964 I a 16 year old young man living in Canada. One of the rites to being a man was to get your driving licence. Here’s what it cost $6.00 Going to the nearest licence office. Sitting down I wrote the test, handing it back I took the driving test, passing I was given a conductors permit that allowed me to drive a BIKE, CAR, MOTORCYCLE, TRUCK OF ANY SIZE. If I wanted to drive a bus or taxi I had to get a chauffeur’s licence. ALL DONE IN 2 HOURS. try it now
Come back with me to 1966 being a 18 year old young man living in Montreal and driving up to our country place in Rawdon stopping for gas to fill up (COST $8.00). reaching Rawdon we stopped to pick up a case of beer and cigarettes ( cost $3.50 for a 2/4 and $4.69 for a carton of cigarettes). Getting to our cottage, wearing a bathing suit, T shirt and sneakers I hopped on my motorcycle and off for a swim. No cares, no worries no cops just having fun.
Other times we would go down town with some friends we ’d go to the clubs. The Esquire Show Bar, The Scan where you could buy a beer for 65 cents or over to a tavern where you could buy a beer for 10 cents a glass just having some fun just a little fun is that too much to ask
HAPPY CANADA DAY GO AND HAVE SOME FUN IF YOU CAN

TELL US YOUR STORIES OF YESTERYEARS
