A Canadian!

Recommended Posts

A good friend sent me this today.




Once in a while someone does a nice job of describing a Canadian, this time

it was an Australian dentist.


In case anyone asks you who a Canadian is . . .



Proud to be Canadian


An Australian Definition of a Canadian -

Written by an Australian Dentist



You probably missed it in the local news, but there was a report


that someone in Pakistan had advertised in a newspaper an offer of a


reward to anyone who killed a Canadian - any Canadian.



An Australian dentist wrote the following editorial to help define


what a Canadian is, so they would know one when they found one.



A Canadian can be English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German,


Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. A Canadian can be Mexican,


African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian,


Asian, Arab, Pakistani or Afghan.



A Canadian may also be a Cree, Métis, Mohawk, Blackfoot, Sioux, or


one of the many other tribes known as native Canadians. A Canadian's


religious beliefs range from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim,


Hindu or none. In fact, there are more Muslims in Canada than in


Afghanistan. The key difference is that in Canada they are free to


worship as each of them chooses. Whether they have a religion or no


religion, each Canadian ultimately answers only to God, not to the


government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government


and for God.



A Canadian lives in one of the most prosperous lands in the history


of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the


Charter of Rights and Freedoms which recognize the right of each


person to the pursuit of happiness.



A Canadian is generous and Canadians have helped out just about


every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking


a thing in return. Canadians welcome the best of everything, the


best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the


best services and the best minds. But they also welcome the least -


the oppressed, the outcast and the rejected.



These are the people who built Canada. You can try to kill a


Canadian if you must as other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world


have tried but in doing so you could just be killing a relative or a


neighbour. This is because Canadians are not a particular people from


a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of


freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, can be a Canadian.



Please keep this going! Pass this around the World. Then pass it


around again. It says it all, for all of us
