Government hosts most unCanadian celebration on Canada’s 150th

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Canadian governments have decided that the way to throw a party for our country’s 150th birthday is to spend their way into hosting the most unCanadian celebration ever. 

The Liberals allotted half a billion dollars, in part, to bring in half of Irish band U2.

The Ontario Liberals doled out hundreds of thousands to rent a giant, and allegedly, counterfeit duck and Calgary brought in a giant red ball with part of the $700K the Liberals gave the city for celebrations.

What does this all have to do with Canada?

Nothing much. But as I explain in my video, I think the worst thing to come out of this spending spree is the fancy logo design.

I can’t begin to imagine the cost of branding and executing this new logo that came as a result of a design competition the Conservatives held to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday celebration.

Not only was this project a waste of taxpayer money, but the idea that we need to change or alter traditional symbols that represent us as a nation, is a slippery slope that may begin with minor changes to a holiday, but what comes next?

I don’t like it when the government overspends and wastes taxpayer dollars for un-Canadian celebrations on the nation’s birthday, and modifying our national symbols is about as un-Canadian as you can get.

Thanks for your familys contribution Andy Neimers.
Being mixed race half of me came from abroad, no special treatment, no welfare, just hard work together to be successful. The bullshit fake refugees getting free everything so they will vote liberal has to stop. Now the liebrals dont want it to be a requirement to speak French or English to gain citizenship and you dont have to show your face either. They will vote in blocks for their liberal muslim candidate.
No need to to speak to the Canadian infidels.

Jimmy admits he is a fake, just too too funny!!!

I wasn’t sure if the dolt would fall for it or not…but he did, hook, line and stinker! LOL.
What a retard and a loser…I almost feel sorry for the creep, almost.
I’m pretty sure he doesn’t like the ‘Short-Eyes-Jimmy’ moniker, like Justin doesn’t like being called Justin, because he thinks it’s disrespectful – if he only knew the utter contempt people hold him in, ‘Short-Eyes-Jimmy’ too.

Jimmy Reece people have had to assimilate to certain degree since before we were born. We all have to follow the same laws, or at least we did have to until PET showed up and now the double standard is even worse. And you are confusing subjugation with diversity. If they do not have to assimilate then why do i have to respect their ways? OH did i ask a REAL question that you will not be able to honestly answer?
commented 2017-07-04 01:53:50 -0400
Jimmy Reece the sorry but you do not speak for Canada, and rural Ontario does not share the views of urban Ontario. And we tend to get upset when we are robbed and raped like PET did in the past and like the new carbon tax will do again. And you do not get to define bigotry.

Jim Webb,

I have every basis – many Rebels members have said exactly that. That they would have left Canada long ago if it was financially viable and that they would happy as a pig in shit, if Alberta could separate from the rest of Canada, who doesn’t share their view.

I have no problem with a differing opinion, but it is not bigotry to be against a fundamental viewpoint that is un-Canadian. However you can continue to think that way, just don’t expect Canada to be what you want it to be.

I can assure you that my neighbours in Toronto, don’t have the contempt for Canada that you have.
commented 2017-07-03 21:54:39 -0400
Actually Jimmy R I am confusing nothing here. Because folks hold a different opinion than yourself, you freely tell them to leave Canada. Further, calling (as you did) those who don’t agree with your opinions and who live in a specifically defined portion of the country as being “not real Canadians” is nothing more than bigotry.
Having the capacity to tolerate a diversity of opinion is therefore evidently not your strong suit. I would suggest that is clearly contrary to Canadian values, and completely flies in the face of your assertion that you somehow represent the archetypal liberal progressive / “real” Canadian, such that you can confidently state that those who don’t agree with you are already on the wrong side of history.
Labeling someone as being on the wrong side of history, when discussing contemporary events, is oxymoronic; current events are not part of history, there has not been the passage of time to render a judgement based on future intervening events that have not yet transpired, so unless you possess significant psychic abilities I cannot see how you can judge who is on the right or wrong side of history here.
I know my Canadian history Jimmy. If you’d like a treatise on any particular point name your poison. But you won’t necessarily get the revisionist kind that seeks to offend no one, nor will it necessarily fall in line with tender progressive talking points.
You have zero basis for throwing in the canards about separation and whether or not someone would say “fuck you” to Canada if they could get a job in Texas. What has any of that got to do with the price of rubber? And what’s with the constant fixation with Texas, other than tired leftist stereotype? The spectrum of opinion on separation, the States, multiculturalism, Texas, or whether Trudeau has a functioning brain stem runs the gamut from 0 to 100 with the “non-real Canadians” in the West as it does with those who you would classify by geography as “real”.
Hate to shock you, but I bet there are even people where you live, right now, in your building, who don’t agree with you at all either. Better lock your doors.

LMAO @ duh troll, you can keep changing your name as much as you like, you eventually tip your hand because you cannot hide your personality. But once again, nice spin on your postings, ask for that raise.

Hyacinth,

Everyone knows that I have had to use other names, because The Rebel has banned me so many times. This isn’t a revelation.

What’s funny is that you use a fake name.
commented 2017-07-03 19:47:45 -0400
Jim Webb,

You are confusing diversity with being on the wrong side of history and wanting Canada to be something that it’s not. You are free to have that opinion – just don’t be surprised if you are told that you are being very un-Canadian, because that is factually the case.

For example, Canada has always been proud about our multiculturalism and people not being forced to assimilate as long as I have been alive – which is 46 years now , but now to some Canadians – primarily located in the west where they constantly talk about a desire to separate from Canada, multiculturalism is a bad word.

If you can’t accept that Canada is more liberal and progressive country than America – hence the reason why Liberals have bee the primary party in power in Canada’s history and it’s only going to continue further in that direction, then it seems to be a pretty reasonable question – why do you continue to live here?

For example, I have seen many people here say they would move to the States in a second and leave Liberal Land Canada or again, they want the west to separate from Canada. At least they are honest and can admit that they have a contempt for Canada and would leave in a second, if it was financially doable for them. If they could move to Texas with a job lined up, they would happily say fuck you to Canada, because this country isn’t for them.

In your brain, this is a sensible and logical comment?

The amusement continues. Jimmy R actually believes his narrow “like it or leave it” view of Canada represents not only all those who identify as “progressive”, but that it is somehow the only true “Canadian” view. Awfully sorry if not everyone buys into whatever it is you have self-defined as the archetypal progressive, allegedly all-pervasive Canadian mindset. Wow, a question politicians and academics have been struggling with for 150 years and you have it all figured out. However, unlike self-described progressives like yourself I don’t look for (nor do I need to be told to go to) a safe space where I am surrounded by those of similar thought. Canada is too important to leave in the hands of those like you who cut and run as soon as they’re confronted with a view they don’t share.

Study history boyo, Canada has taken in diverse viewpoints for a century and a half now. Isn’t the current liberal progressive slogan du jour “Diversity is our Strength”? As a self-described progressive Jimmy, I am surprised that you would advocate that we go off to our separate corners; uniformity of thought for me and uniformity of thought for you, that’s what you prefer eh? Do you admire the basic Chinese dictatorship too?

Huh, go figure, I was always told that progressives LOVED diversity. So is that all just a big lie Jimmy, or are you the one actually out of step? Or is “progressive” merely a noble sounding label hiding an onerous Big Brother collectivism, the equivalent of gold leaf applied to a turd of a philosophy? I suspect “real” Canadians have a view that spans the spectrum on these questions, as they should, because that is what “real” Canada stands for.

Your particular viewpoint DOES have historical precedent though, and for that I would refer you to any number of fine writings on 1930’s Germany and the rise of an imposed “correct” nationalistic mindset there. (If you don’t have access to books I’m sure any number of your progressive Antifa pals will be glad to fill you in on the tactics they have adopted from that era).

Two wrongs don’t make a right Jimmy… Never worry about what the other guys doing just make sure you do the right thing. Up till that point you have no shame..
Just because Patrick Brown is a pedophile Jimmy it doesn’t mean you have to be one too in less you embrace that kind of thing..

“Canada and Canadians are not going to change for you.”

LMAO, too bad the Liberal Jimmy Duh Troll can’t get that through his little mind, he truly is clueless. CBC’s revised narrative of Canadian history fell flat but that doesn’t stop the Red Tent’s agenda. Unfortunately for them people overall are not as uninformed as they were in Pierre Trudeau’s day thanks to the internet.

“Canadian history about to get another rewrite: Delacourt
Liberals continue tradition of putting their own spin on Canada’s past and its identity — one that remains somewhat fluid as we approach our country’s 150th birthday.”

The Liberals continually try to erase one historical fact – The Conservative Party was the founding political party of Canada.

Leviticus 2013,

The majority of Canada is liberal in varying degrees – so by your logic, most Canadians are pedophiles?

The left doesn’t support pedophilia, so your entire point is moot. You have a crazy view of things and that’s not my problem. As I confirmed before, the vast majority of parents support the sex ed curriculum and even Patrick Brown isn’t going to touch it, even if he destroys Wynne in the election.

Does Patrick Brown support pedophiles?

You are so brainwashed by conservative propaganda, hyperbole, conspiracy theories and fear mongering. It’s actually quite entertaining seen how weak minded you are.
commented 2017-07-03 12:16:47 -0400
Jimmy the pedophile says prove it…
Jimmy… Your left-wing liberal and that’s proof in itself.
Just remember Jimmy that opinion freely given is far more valuable than one solicited and you have given nothing of conviction criticizing the left for their support of pedophilia and that makes you guilty as charged.
you refused to defend yourself on postings to threads that you would be familiar with if criticizing Wynne and her policies.. by doing so you not only support the Liberals but her support her policies and a pedophile who constructed them for prepubescent children in our communities..
Short eyes Jimmy… You’re a pedophile and a CUNT..

Jim Webb,

You don’t seem happy with the country you live in. It’s not a matter of disagreeing – you have a problem with what Canada is all about and you want it to be something that it’s not. So the reasonable response is to say that if you are not happy with Canada, then leave. Canada and Canadians are not going to change for you.

Hey short-eyes, yeah you, JIMMY REECE , care to explain why your name appears on Pedophile Watch Canada’s list?

Well?
Not even a peep, from the little diddler…
commented 2017-07-03 02:16:56 -0400
LOL, oh he’ll have something Leviticus. You can never have the last word with progressives, because they believe their arguments are inherently “correct”; that those who disagree MUST be flawed because how can anyone in their right mind remotely disagree with something that in the progressive mind is so “obviously” right? So they continue the discourse ad infinitum because they feel the need to educate (convince) the unenlightened.

Keep up the good fight. I always enjoy reading your take on matters.

You don’t worry about my real name Jimmy… I don’t need pedophile loving cross dressers who’s best efforts could only inspired them to the level of a cunt in life showing up like the cowards that they are at 4 o’clock in the morning and teaching me a lesson by burning down my house with my family in it..
Besides Jimmy you don’t deserve to know my name because you’re a pedophile and I would not associate in person with a pedophile cunt like you.
Happy dominion day Jimmy.

Yawn… Jimmy you’re becoming boring, it is well known to everyone on the site and you have self admitted it that you are a leftist liberal supporter.. Say what you like but your mouth gives you away.
You only pretend to denounce Kathleen Wynne (just recently on this thread and nowhere else) and her policies through hollow efforts that are so insincere the drip with the vomit that you used to spew them..
Jim Webb exposed you so completely you are transparent now.. Not that you weren’t transparent before but you are unstable like a pinball in a machine with no direction or path.
You refuse to make any effort to find the posts that you would be familiar with if you had said anything of consequence contrary to the evils that you obviously embrace…
Jimmy Reese may I add to your list… You are a hypocrite,
a pedophile,a liar and a cunt.!! but never have you been this pathetic.!!. I am actually beginning to feel sorry for you.

Jim Webb wow… I don’t know what I could say to Jimmy after that because in a couple paragraphs without using any profanity other then when quoting.. Jimmy you nailed the lid on his box..
commented 2017-07-03 01:44:45 -0400
LOL. Haven’t had such a good laugh in a long time. Jimmy R waxes poetic about the progressive tolerance of Canada, holds himself up as a stellar example of correct-thinking citizenry, then tells those who disagree with him to fuck off out of his country.
Very tolerant, very progressive. Also very typical. It’s always easy to spew off scripted talking points and lazy throw-away slogans (“Adapt or die”), not so easy to make any sort of cogent argument apparently.
By the way, were we to take your “adapt or die” mantra as an all-encompassing truth and apply it to immigrants or gays, or any number of identifiable groups, for example, should they likewise be expected to adapt or die? Or for you is “adapt or die” just a one way street for those of us whose ancestors formed the very underpinnings of the tolerant society we currently enjoy, and who have been in the country for generations?
Whatever. Clearly there has been no mass slaughter at any time (nor would there be) of those of any identifiable group who have not adapted; they have not “died” in any sense of the word, physically or organizationally, whether they have actually adapted or not, because they have been protected by the tolerance built into the Canadian system.
So your argument is merely dogma; slogans add nothing.
Just remember Jimmy, that if your argument is to have any effect it has to cover all angles of an equation. So if you really want to put it out there as some sort of all-pervasive universal truth that society is never as you want it to be, be prepared to accept that the sword cuts both ways; by your very words, it can therefore never be the way you want it to be either.
Only difference is I’m not telling those I disagree with to get the fuck out of my country. So tell me who is the more progressive and tolerant? Not you boyo. Your particular “progressive liberal” view is clearly coloured by a bigotry towards “not real Canadians” (as defined by you) living “in parts of the West ala [sic] not BC” (as delineated by you), because, apparently, there are opinions out there you don’t like and don’t think you should have to hear. So rather than accept a contrary opinion as just that you slap a value judgement on those making the comment and label the whole package (commentator and comment) as being those of “not real Canadians” (again, as defined by you).
I would suggest your approach is, at its base, antithetical to Canadian values; it is completely at odds with the concepts of tolerance and the fundamental values inherited from the English democratic model, and which Canada has consistently adhered to over the past 150 years.
Irony is a bitch sometimes Jimmy, especially given the implicit belief in your argument that your view is that of a “real” Canadian.
And yes, I’m from Alberta. Please feel free to continue to bolster my argument by adding the requisite progressive liberal stereotypes about red-necked Albertan knuckle draggers.
