New citizenship study guide highlights Indigenous Peoples, Canadian responsibilities

The current “Discover Canada” guide dates back to 2011 when the previous Conservative government did its own overhaul designed to provide more information on Canadian values and history.

Some of the Conservatives’ insertions attracted controversy, including increased detail about the War of 1812 and a warning that certain “barbaric cultural practices,” such as honour killings and female genital mutilation, are crimes in Canada.

No reason to be knowledgeable about your new homeland’s history or laws – the history is changing and the laws don’t apply to immigrants anyway.

    “The War of 1812”
    You mean the first great war of Northern Aggression?

    Glad the refugees are made aware they don’t have to follow anything
    other than the delivery of their benefits check ..

    Since all of North America sits upon “stolen land” Canada as a nation state is illegitimate and the concept of a Canadian People is just whatever you want it to be.
    That’s pretty much what is being communicated.

    I will make a prediction right now.
    All of your immigrants since Justin Trudeau are going to not only be huge problems, but will sow the seeds of a greater Canadian disintegration down the line. They will be worse than the Khadr family, and you will have thousands of them.

      Give it 10 years, and that thousands will become millions.

        If it ever gets too bad, you will be annexed as a protectorate.
        Kinda, sorta, softly.
        Think Guam or Puerto Rico, but with much better pancake syrup. 😉

          That would be nice, but I fear you may be too busy with your own problems.

            Very true at present, but if the president and true Republicans manage to drain the swamp, then that can change the situation totally.

      I predicted when Trudeau 1st was in power that Canada would not survive to see its bicentennial intact, and I have yet to see a reason to change my mind.

    • Alain

      How could it be otherwise?

  • pettifog

    I think they should also add for a Canadian value, that we are entitled to abortion, suicide and marijuana on demand and anyone that thinks otherwise is a bigot, Fascist or a Conservative redneck. (Unless you’re Muslim, then follow your own rules.)

    I just cannot believe they left out the homosexuals, lesbians and trannies. What are we coming to?

    Q: The heritage of which peoples has had a greater influence on Canadian culture, Indians or Jews?

    A: Think about it … maybe while thumbing a bible.

    Looks like Muslim vagina sculpting is not as big a deal with the Govt of Canada not even wanting to mention it as being wrong – despite what the Toronto Star and Crescent would have us all believe.

      A woman’s vagina is internal. The external genitalia is called the vulva.
