Received from a friend today........

Something to think about.    
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,
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. 
'Keep your stick on the ice eh'
