This rant is more about the ignorance of Canadians than it is about what Canadians could do about it. I suspect 90% of all Canadians believe their elected representatives swore an oath to protect Canada and or Canadians.
Wrong they swore an oath to protect the Queen, her family and her assets, that’s it period.
Mind blowing isn’t it?
The only people allowed to vote in what we call the Canadian parliament, swore to protect the Queen and the people of the country are not even mentioned.
Sounds like were back in medieval times, here it is in verbatim.
The obligation requiring all Members of Parliament to take the oath is found in the Constitution Act, 1867, with the text of the oath itself outlined in the Fifth Schedule. The Act states: “Every Member of the … House of Commons of Canada shall before taking his Seat therein take and subscribe before the Governor General or some Person authorized by him … the Oath of Allegiance contained in the Fifth Schedule to this Act …” The wording of the oath is as follows: “I, (Member’s name), do swear, that I will be faithful and bear true Allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.” As an alternative to swearing the oath, Members may make a solemn affirmation, by simply stating: “I, (Member’s name), do solemnly, sincerely, and truly declare and affirm that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.”
If a Member fails or refuses to swear the oath of allegiance or make a solemn affirmation, the Member may not be allowed to take his or her seat in the Chamber and may be deprived of any entitlements. Thus, it is the taking of the oath or affirmation which enables a Member to take his or her seat in the House and to vote.
Then you have the millions of immigrants coming to Canada, and do you think they swear an oath to the great country of Canada?
Here it is verbatim, the good news is that it does include Canada, but sadly in the wrong order of importance.
I swear (or affirm) that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada, Her Heirs and Successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfil my duties as a Canadian citizen.
Back to my original question, do you think one day Canada will wake up as did our American neighbors?
The birth of the United States of America as an independent nation. July 4, 1776, as a day that represents the Declaration of Independence.
Do you think that 250 years later Canada could also become an independent nation?
