why Canada is the best country in the world

The Indo- Canadian community built the most amazing, beautiful ..damn, I hate to say of peace? That sounds way too pretentious. A really cool building where ANYONE can go regardless of faith or ethnicity. It's a place for the contemplation of peace.
They had it hand built, no wood, no steel. Hand carved stone.
It cost 40 million dollars and every dime was private donations. And still? Open to any Canadian.

Think about this for a moment. They don't care what religion you are or even if you don't believe at all. They want to talk about peace, harmony..happiness.

So, while the Catholics are molesting children and the Muslims and Jews are blowing up children here in Canada we are talking to our children about peace and what being a good citizen is all about.
I'll give you a hint. Being a good Canadian citizen is all about trying your best to get along, it's about looking out at the world and offering help and protection.
We don't want anything from you except your happiness and your desire to make your world a safer, happier place for your children.
I wont say Canada is a perfect place despite Micheal Moore's rose coloured glasses. We have some very bad people living here too. We have American immigrants that have brought their violent culture of guns,gangs, drugs and murder with them. We have immigrants that have bought into that violent culture. I have no sympathy for any of these people. After all Canada has free health care, a free public education, welfare and housing, loans available to anyone to go to University. Hell, we have laws in place that state anyone who is eligible for University cannot be denied due to financial hardship.
Being poor in Canada is the equivalent of middle class in ninety percent of the rest of the world.
And yet they still whine they want more, more, more.
I have the urge to send them to Africa for a year, maybe they will be more appreciative of the home they have.
All countries have a tiny minority that can never be satisfied. This minority will always have one excuse after another for why they can't be expected to succeed. I guess having to go to work is just too much to ask for some people.
Happily, so far they are a tiny minority that can and should be marginalized and deported if at all possible.

Canada has great schools, great far we haven't left anyone on the floor of the ER to die of a perforated bowel because they had the audacity to come to the ER three times complaining of agonizing belly pain. We have an extensive safety net that includes welfare and housing , pensions for the elderly and disability payments for the disabled.
We have a four party political system that creates checks and balances. We would never have a King George problem here.
We try to highlight and celebrate our differences instead of dropping them all in a "melting pot" and then attacking them when they don't burn off their different culture fast enough.
We accommodate language here. We understand that English is the most difficult language to learn..well some Chinese can be harder but that's because you have to learn to listen when someone is speaking. Not something we in the west are very good at.
Yes, sometimes we get impatient with the new guys, we wish they would hurry up and figure everything out quickly but we are compassionate too. We know they are trying and it's scary.

I support the war in Afghanistan. I support the work our soldiers are doing. Not because I am some doltish patriot with a flag on my house but because I understand that we have gone there to support and assist a beautiful country. We aren't there in a war on terror like some idiot Bush supporter. WE actually thought about what we were fighting and dying for. Our mission is to help build roads, schools and hospitals. We are there to protect the rights of the people who want these things. We are there to protect the government. To support them until they have enough infrastructure and economy to care for themselves.
We aren't there to peer in caves calling Osama's name. We don't give a shit. But if you slink out of your cave and try to disrupt the lives of the people then we will kick your ass so hard you will either die or slither back into your cave and be thankful you have it.
Afghanistan is Canada's little brother and you should know the shit you can get into when you screw with someone's family.
There will come a time when little brothers grow up and don't need anyone beating the shit out of bullies anymore. Afghanistan, if we in Canada have our way will grow up to be a tough little shit that can and will kick the crap out of anyone or anything that threatens it . Until that day I fully support our soldiers doing the ass kicking. Cowards that can't fight and use sneak bombs? We have bigger bombs and we are more sneaky than even you can imagine, you use a baseball bat? We will use a 2x4 when you are walking out of the toilet.
My advice to anyone trying to stall Afghanistan? Get back to Pakistan, they like you and your crazy shit there.

I also don't believe we are in the same danger England has found itself in. Despite appearances England is not multi cultural. It has marginalized it's immigrant population because England is ridiculously expensive. Everything that means survival; food, clothing, housing is too expensive. In England success is nearly impossible. They have created a massive underclass that has no hope. That makes people bitter as shit. Bitter, poor people are angry and very,very violent.
Allowing too many immigrants when you don't have the economy to support them is a disaster waiting to happen.
Open immigration is a bad, bad thing. Look at France, Germany and England. They should have closed the door but instead they opened it even wider and now? They have a pissed off population.

Canada has a pretty good immigration system. We are the largest country in the world, it used to be the USSR and we all know how that turned out. We have a ton of room except that room? Damn cold in the winter and over run with black flies in summer. We can't get the new immigrants to move north, hell can you blame them? So we pretend half the country doesn't exist and plan our immigration on that. So far it has worked okay. Personally I think no Americans should be allowed into the country and that includes state visits from moronic presidents but since I like Florida in January I guess we have to let a few in to keep the peace.
God knows you Americans can get nasty if you aren't treated like perfect little princesses.
I do wish you would consider building that cool new fence up here but if I know you guys you will make us pay for half and take us to court if we refuse.

I think Canada is a good country. We do the best we can most of the time. We aren't prone to religious fanaticism and so far we haven't had to suffer from a delusional Prime Minister who believes that God speaks to him.
Only in America or Iran do the leaders believe God is whispering in their ear.
