It is not solely your country. It is the country of all citizens of Canada, regardless of their whiteness or lack thereof.

Your focus on "good ol Canadian white folk" merely underscores the need for the actions that are being taken here and around the world right now to address racist attitudes.

Thanks for participating and assisting with that. It is always important to bring views such as yours to the forefront so the argument that "it’s not like that here" is easily disproved.

So, you discount and discredit all the white lives lost in the wars so you can sit there smugly and call me racist? YOURS is the wrong attitude if that is all you can see!
I agree that Canada is ALL peoples but the cost was born by a hell of a lot of brave WHITE men.

You are white? Congratulations, you had the genetic luck to be born with the right skin pigmentation, gender, sexual orientation and geographic area to give you many advantages that most people around the world don’t get.

This is your country, in that you lucky enough to be born in and a citizen here. But the country doesn’t belong to you, or white people, any more than it belongs to descendants of resettled former black slaves, or an Indonesian who moved to Canada 3 years ago.

No, I neither discount nor discredit any lives lost in the wars but to single out the "white lives", when it is a fact that there were lives of every race in Canada lost in the various wars, is a problem of yours, not mine.

The cost of the war was borne, not born, by a hell of a lot of brave men and women of various races and colours.
To smugly deny others their due recognition for their sacrifices is the wrong attitude if that is all you can see. It merely illustrates the title of this thread: “Some lives don’t matter".

My country! My ancestors died to protect your freedom. You are right. I am privileged to live here! Something I don't take lightly and I will defend. I will defend alongside the black, the red and yellow to maintain that freedom against any color. I have never denied anyone anything, simply protecting from those that would take it.
I also not feel guilty about my skin color or who I am or the fact I was born here. I know my sacrifices and what I am about and no one can tell me different. I have done my time and owe no one a damn thing. Try to take whats mine, what I have earned honestly with integrity, I will defend it. Sorry if most are too shallow to understand these concepts now a days.

The country is being ripped up by PC bullbleep. How far are you really prepared to go?

The problem with "Try to take whats mine, what I have earned honestly with integrity, I will defend it" is figuring out what you mean by that.
If you mean your material possessions, that’s great.
However, I sense that you mean your way of life and your historical white privilege (which I understand that you neither recognize nor agree with), based on the intense white-focus of your posts. If that is the case, you are likely heading into a world of anger for the balance of your life. That horse is out of the barn.

I'm first Nations, and my grandfather fought in WW2 to protect your freedom too. The difference between your grandfather and mine is the treatment they received on their return. Yours was eligible for social benefits like the Veterans Charter and received the accolades of a grateful nation, mine received scorn and a return to a segregated reserve.

You speak as if my call for social justice dismisses your grandfathers service and is an attempt to take something to which I am not owed, yet my grandfather's service like my people in general is invisible to you. I am not seeking to take anything from you, I do seek equality in opportunity and the way I am treated in the streets instead. I want my life, and that of my children, to matter.

I've heard that multiple times from FN families. Pzzes me off more and more every time. Why were they not eligible for veterans benefits like any other soldier?

Fun fact:

When US brought Nazi prisoners to US soil, Nazi soldiers were treated better than black soldiers guarding them. When they were parading them through the streets and had to stop for food, black guards were not allowed inside the cantine and had to wait oitside for Nazis to finish eating.

They couldn't even drink out of the same water fountain.

So, whose lives matter more back then - Black US sodiers or Nazis? Hmmmmm....

That you imply that the sites above (other than the first one which is peripherally relevant) are "science" is telling enough. But good effort.

Yes, "good ol science" is worthwhile.
As is good new science.

It’s truly amazing to see the trend in North America to the distrust of science and the resistance to anything related to science.
