The Great Canadian Divide

The Great Canadian Divide

Personally I’ve become more and more disgruntled with our Canadian government and where it’s leading us. In 2019, Canadians will once again vote for their prospective government.

Recently on Twitter I noticed the Conservative Party making some serious errors, not realizing Canadians are more consciously informed. It looks like their following ‘Trumps Fake News Campaign’ which will fail miserably, if they keep it up. Seriously, I don’t want to see another four years of a Trudeau government. If re-elected, Trudeau’s government will be vindicated, causing an historical record-breaking deficit of nearly $1.5 Trillion dollars, casting doubt to our Canadian heritage, plaguing us with his crazy Carbon Tax, having an almost open-border policy and completely crippling our economy.

It will most certainly become “The Great Canadian Divide” forcing Canadians against Canadians. Trudeau’s liberal dictatorship is passing law after law to make it against-the-law to speak against his idealism, where the Canadian culture is slowly beginning to crush under pressure of offended minority’s. It won’t be long before “the conservative voice” will become the minority, stating it’s “un-Canadian” including outlandish language, such as “peoplekind” instead of mankind.

Truly, it’s becoming Hell-on-Earth.

There’s NO way Liberals and Conservatives will ever agree, simply because of these two statements:

Liberal’s : “Nobody from any non-western minority group is offended or even complaining. It’s always a certain cast of WHITE people member of the PC brigade that push these kinds of idiocies.”

Conservative: “Coun. Ben Isitt recently suggested the city shouldn’t be doing things like lighting up a tree in Centennial Square as it is “too religious”.

Religion is supposed to be our constitutional right, for all Canadian citizens.

So no – we’re not being paranoid or is this about “white” or “privileged”. It’s always a cast of “Liberals” who close their eyes to the obvious.”

Canadians against Canadians – It’s inevitable.

What this means, each diverse group of Canadians will stick closely with their own. In open public, most will keep tight-lipped ignoring each other. It means Canada will no longer be a country as a whole, but a mix-mash of segregated groups. Each group will be offended by the other. It means complete “Chaos”.

We must keep to the FACTS :

Alberta & Saskatchewan have both contributed to Canada’s economy greatly (in the last four decades) 🇨🇦. Both provinces were the main engine behind the distribution of “equalization payments” to provinces, such as Quebec.

Quebec and four provinces will receive equalization payments next year (2019) : $2.3 billion Manitoba, $2 billion New Brunswick & Nova Scotia. $419 million for Prince Edward Island. Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland and Labrador are all currently running budget deficits.

What does @RachelNotley @JustinTrudeau say to the above problem?

Rachael Notley has become more aware of the Federal bureaucrats system of advocates. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is ignoring Rachael’s requests, due to the fact, the federal government bought a $4.5 billion dollar pipeline plagued with tons of legal red-tape.

It literally has become the ‘White Elephant’ in the room.

Now Alberta and Saskatchewan are struggling. Maybe we should get equalization payments too? Unlikely. Such a request would turn Canada into a social crisis ; which province has any money left ?

As a country, Canadians need to be informed with real facts and become truly educated, in regards to our Pipeline, Canada’s future and more about our future resources. You can’t deny the facts. I believe Canadians are intelligent enough to make a sound clear judgement without all the hate mongers from social media. Most Canadians are level-headed individuals.

We must tackle issues on our plate :

Issues like Carbon Tax. Without -a-doubt, it’s a “cash cow”, designed to become a burden upon us all. It sounds good, but it’s the liberal operation of generating income by means of taxes. We shouldn’t be trying to impress the world. If you want to look at the statistics, Canada is far lower in admissions then China or Russia, for example.

Fact : China emits more CO2 than the US and Canada put together – up by 171% since the year 2000. Read more…

Issues, like unemployment : Instead of giving off false records of unemployment dropping, maybe they should begin to look at the Canadians now off of ‘Employment Insurance’ and precariously a step away from homelessness.

In the beginning I thought Trudeau might be the answer to a new approach…however—

We are enlightened to his drastic costly mistakes and worldwide embarrassment. Trudeau has successfully divided Canadians with rising debt (hitting a trillion dollars) ,allowing almost open-borders & fearing us to believe (if we’re NOT with Trudeau) we are considered “un-Canadian”. His words ! Not mine.

It’s also insane Canada 🇨🇦 is buying oil from Saudi Arabia at $400 million per month. Shouldn’t we be more self-sufficient ?

To top it off (personally) I have lost $35,000 due to the actions of Trudeau. Businesses are running from Canada 🇨🇦 as we speak! High River, Alberta is a good example of that. They are trying desperately to bring in new businesses. However, because of the low-business ratio, each homeowner pays outrageous land taxes to make up the downfall. In the city of Calgary (for example) they generally pay $1500 for homeowner taxes, while High River residents pay $3400 – $4000.

Yes – businesses are extremely important to our economy.

In order for Canada to become Canada again, we must respect everyone’s space. That’s means, not to infringe onto others beliefs. It also means to respect our historical Canadian heritage.

It’s simply logic:

“While in Roman do as the Romans do.”

“Buckle up! You’re NOT in Kansas anymore…”

IF you’re truly here in Canada 🇨🇦 to embrace its historical culture and western ways of living, then I say,”Welcome to Canada!” But, if you’re here for selfish reasons, trying to control and threaten our way of life, you’ll certainly be met with opposition.

I believe the Regina Sikh community understands Canadians and clearly how our way-of-life is beginning to crumble.

Regina Sikh community wishes people Merry Christmas

I highly respect the Sikh community for respecting our culture. If they see what’s happening to our Canadian way of living, so do others. Trust me!

The problem with liberals, is that their too liberal. It means, everyone is waiting at the door to walk-all-over-you. Their blinded by this utopia, imagining a country possessing a prefect society. Also described as “Nirvāṇa”.

Whereas, it’s truly becoming the opposite.

Yes. Sometimes the Conservatives are too conservative.

There must be a happy medium. Maybe we need a brand new government party? Seriously, I don’t want another four years of a Trudeau government, where his spending tactics are rampant worldwide, instead of concentrating on Canadians first.

WE need a government that understands the hard-working tax-paying Canadian, not the ones who feed off of our social care, constantly asking for money.

Canada isn’t totally screwed yet, but one day you’ll wake up realizing you just sold the farm (Canada) to the highest bidder. I’m not too worried for my generation, but for my grandkids and their grandchildren. Well you’re drinking the “purple koolaid” China, Russia, Saudi Arabia and North Korea are patiently waiting to destroy our way-of-life.

It’s inevitable.

As Kuldip Singh Sahota said,”We see how troubled our world is, the Sikh community strives towards PEACE.” Well said! Thank you Kuldip Singh Sahota for your understanding.

Today – October 17th 2018 : Marijuana is now LEGAL in CANADA 🇨🇦

Good morning everyone!

TODAY – First time in Canadian history, Marijuana is now legal throughout Canada. Adult Canadians are allowed 30 grams of cannabis, age specification depending on each province.

It will be interesting to see the results. The questions of legalizing Marijuana is yet to be determined. However, I have a couple of questions:

  1. Will it improve our economy?
  2. Will Canadians use it responsibly?

Whatever happens, will indeed be a learning curve, as the rest of the world watches us closely.

What do you think of this new legalization in Canada? Will it benefit you ?

Thank you,

Bari Demersscreenwriter and science-fiction writer

I AM HUMAN

I AM HUMAN.

WE ARE ALL HUMAN. However, with over 7.4 billion people, we can’t seem to get along. Mother Earth is barely holding on, as diverse cultures breed across its globe.

Mother Earth is constantly being misused by HUMAN BEINGS, polluting the lands, our oceans and the air we breathe. As we coexist with millions of species of wildlife, our arrogant self is damaging our planet faster then ever before. Our over-populated species are crowding every little space, consuming our resources at an alarming rate. WE already know, in order to sustain us, our species must explore the universe, sure to infect another planet, before it’s too late.

WE ARE HUMAN.

We’re like this out-of-control virus, with this incurable sensation to survive, no matter what. However, nature is fighting back. It’s in our genetics, tracing back to our prehistoric ancestors (the caveman) keeping close to our KIND.

Our “kind” can be divided up into five races :

• Caucasoid

• Negroid

• Capoid

• Mongoloid (Oriental/ Amerindian)

• Australoid (Australian Aborigine and Papuan)

It’s then we’re subdivided into each of our origins, such as English, French, and Italian. After this division, we become more divided by each religion and culture. AND – that’s where everything goes to HELL. Nature is fighting back because of our narrow mindedness. We humans cause wars over religion, race, culture and colour, in an attempt to say we’re a better race or have the right religion. In the end, we’ll eliminate ourselves as nature continues on without us. It may take a million years, but Mother Earth will reboot, starting up another evolutionary species.

It’s sad, really.

Here we are ; intelligent HOMO-SAPIENS evolving from our ancestors, but too stupid to realize our own fate, due to arrogance. Our species are resourceful but can never accept or respect each other for who we are.

NO.

Instead we nitpick, clumped together in each of our own cultures, like the caveman we are. Let’s look at ME for example. My culture is said to be a mixture of French and Italian, but my DNA throws in Cree. Because I’m NOT one hundred percent French, Italian or Cree, each culture doesn’t consider me part of their family. As far as their concerned, I’m just a cross-breed, otherwise known as “Heinz 57”. It means, the French, Italians and Cree don’t respect me for who I am. THEY will NOT welcome me into their homes, because technically I’m not part of their culture.

I AM HUMAN.

Even though my father comes from a long line of DEMERS following back to the origins of France, settling in Lower Canada 🇨🇦 (now Quebec) way before the English ever step foot on Canadian soil, the French will never consider me their own.

Even though my mother comes from a long line of VARZES since the Roman Empire, the Italians have never welcomed me into their homes, since my grandfather died.

Even though my French ancestors played house with the first nations (indigenous aboriginal) people, the Cree think of me as an outsider. When we use the term, “Indian”, we’re quickly referred to as being racist, when their race freely refer us, as “White Man”. Believe it or not, both slangs are indeed racist.

Let me explain further.

I’m an artist, be it writing, drawing or graphic design. My Art has taken me along many adventures, including submersing myself into the Northwest Native Art, for the past 40 years. Just recently I asked a member of the First Nations people to help me with this design, as I want to explore the inner meanings of their culture. This is what this person told me, “ I don’t feel comfortable giving advise because the art work you are trying to produce is a form of cultural appropriation. There is more knowledge that goes into a design, that has been passed down from many generations, and has almost went extinct. This is our form of visual language. I appreciate that you enjoy our culture, but there is so much more to learn to respect the artwork.”

Teach me then.

Please teach me the right way to embrace your culture. No response.

Little does she realize I’ve study this art form when I was a teenager. I’m well aware of each cultural background, but like many First Nations People, they each have their own spin on it. It’s their personal art, from their inner soul and spirituality. I may not be one hundred percent Cree, but that’s doesn’t make me an outsider.

Cultural Appropriation.

Now that term is offensive to any artist on this planet. Each artist has his/her own way to express their inner demons of expression, since the dawn of mankind. Each tribal member may have its own form of language arts, but it’s not right to say, we don’t have the right to express it in our own form. That’s like telling an artist you’re banned from expression. I truly understand they want to keep their culture and way of life, passing it down from generation to generation. In fact, I totally respect their culture, requiring guidance, to pursue my artwork. BUT…not to allow an artist to express themselves, has gone too far. Ironically, she asks her followers to draw their expression of Spiritual animals, such as a whale, raven or eagle. Isn’t that also a form of cultural appropriation ?

I AM HUMAN.

I’m a human beings, like any other human being on this earth. All I’m asking is to stop crying wolf when you’re doing the same to others. Treat me as a human being. Treat me NOT as an outsider, but share me your culture. WE must all be treated like EQUALS, no matter your race, religion or cultural upbringing. Embracing each other as a loving family is when WE may eventually get along. To close-the-door in my face is not only rude but arrogant, no matter who YOU are.

The French and Italians have done the exact same thing. So be it. I’m CANADIAN and extremely proud to be part of this wonderful country. My culture is Canadian, that’s my NEW culture.

It frustrates me to no end, as each culture embraces their own, without inviting outsiders, welcoming them in. I say,”Look forward to the future, embrace each human being as your GOD intended YOU to. It’s called respect.”

NOTE : Please be respectful. You never know what may come out of it.

A Father is What a Father Should Be 

A Father is What a Father Should Be
This weekend is Father’s Day, so I would like to say a Father means more then just being a Father figure of the family. 

It also means : 

1. Each Father has a responsibility to looking after the well-being of his family, loving his children and hopefully teaching them to become responsible adults, where they too, show carrying love towards their children.  

2. The Father shares the responsibility with his loving wife or partner, working hard throughout their lives, ensuring their children receive unconditional love ❤️, warm shelter, food, the right education, clothing and protection from harms way.

3. A Father’s responsibility doesn’t end when his children grow up but continues giving advice towards the well being of his children, helping them out as much as he possibly can. The only difference, it’s up to the kids to make their own judgment, striving towards a responsible adult. At first your kids don’t understand your advice, but later on (with life experiences) come to you and say,” Now I understand what you were trying to say Dad.”  

4. A Father is a Dad. A Dad is one that will teach you new beginnings, such as riding your first bike or tying your shoes. He will also take you on a journey, exploring what the earth has to offer, from hiking to the top of a mountain to camping ⛺️ within our amazing provincial parks.  

5. A Dad will show you how important education really is, by introducing you to the science pavilions across Canada 🇨🇦 , or where he may reside. He may help you discover a new science experiment or take you gold panning, learning the science of geology. 

6. A DAD is a loving DAD who cares for his children and wife or partner. 

7. A LOVING DAD hopes his children take the right path in the future, to look after themselves and their new family. 

8. A LOVING DAD sometimes will bite his tongue, knowing you may have made some wrong choices, but realizes you will figure out in the end, either by your own experiences or life’s roadblocks.

In the end, a LOVING DAD will always love ❤️ his family. 

Life is a journey and you’re sure to make mistakes along the way.  

BUT – 

What’s really important in life, is your FAMILY. A LOVING FATHER/DAD will teach you, FAMILY is everything. If you can’t trust your family, you’ve lost everything in life. FAMILY means trust, love and even forgiveness.  

AND – 

If your MOM and DAD taught you right, you know when’s it’s time to step-up-to-the-plate and help your mom and dad. It’s the cycle of life.  

SO – 

I hope I’ve been a good DAD teaching my kids right from wrong, leading them towards kind loving adults, expecting nothing in return. I also hope that they respect me who I am and understand I only want the best in their welfare, loving them forever. 
As I head towards retirement, my wife and I will now take this time to enjoy the fruits of our labour, seeing our grandchildren grow into responsible adults to continue on the cycle of life. I hope for the best in my children and their partners, as they continue on into a brighter future. My love to my family.

Love DAD

150 Years Canada – O Canada ! 


Welcome to Canada 🇨🇦! 
Happy 150 years Canada, as we take this year ( 2017) to celebrate the birth of the Canadian Confederation by our founding fathers of Federation. 

It all started on July 1 1867, when just four provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) formed the new Dominion of Canada.  

  • A time when Upper and Lower Canada was the heart of Canada 🇨🇦 
  • A time ruled by the French and the English. 
  • A time when NWT (the Northwest Territories) filled Western Canada. 
  • A time when the Hudson Bay Company ruled the fur trade. 
  • A time when the Dominion Police formed (1868), quickly transforming itself into the bigger picture for Canada, the Royal Northwest Mounted Police (RNWMP) founded in 1873. 
  • A time when King Edward VII ruled. 
  • A time when the population of Canada was only 3,463,000. 

150 YEARS LATER 

Today Canada has ten provinces and three territories. Our honourable Prime Minister is Justin Trudeau. Today we are protected by the RCMP. Today we have a population of over 36 million, ten times that of 1867. 

Our identity is Canadian. 

Our love for Canada is the vastness of this beautiful rugged country, from our National Parks (such as Banff and Jasper) to each Provincial regional parks, holding fast to its everlasting beauty.  

O Canada —–> 

O Canada!

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
Ô Canada!

Terre de nos aïeux,

Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!

Car ton bras sait porter l’épée,

Il sait porter la croix!

Ton histoire est une épopée

Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

I’m proud to be Canadian. I am proud to live in a country that allows us the freedom of choice. O Canada 🇨🇦 Strong and Free ! 

Happy 150 YEAR Anniversary Canada!

Welcome to Canada 

Welcome to Canada

  4. All Americans are allowed to pick the province they choose to live. But just so you know, the Okanagan Valley in the southern part of a British Columbia is indeed the most wonderful place to live. 
  5. Those with celebrity status (such as Cher) have the option of becoming an American ambassador in Canada, receiving free health care, free coffee at Tim Horton, each and every year they stay in Canada. On top of that, they will have the option to live in the beautiful Okanagan or Vancouver Island area, living in an estate mansion of their choice, subsidized by the Canadian government. In return, they must promote “Free Americans from Donald Trump”. They may choose any province of Canada they so wish to live, but must supply their own mansion.  
  6. Anyone with professions, such as Doctor, Lawyer, Architect and Engineer, will get supplemental BONUS income, just for coming to live in Canada 🇨🇦. 
  7. Any past or present NASA employees are encouraged to work for The Canadian Space Agency, working together towards a goal, planning for a mission to Mars and the Moon, in order to colonize them. They may also start their own company with start-up costs provided by the Government of Canada.

It’s our commitment to help our friendly American neighbours in times of uncertainty and make them feel at home in Canada. 

Home away from Home, sort-of-speak. 

Don’t worry, we will teach you how to say,” Eh?” at the end of each sentence. Pretty soon you’ll be saying these very words,” I’m American and I’m living in Canada as an American citizen. That’s pretty good…eh?” At first the term “eh” will be hard to get use to, but after a year it will become part of your vocabulary…eh?  It quite possible Canada may be the new WESTWORLD

We welcome our American friends to Canada! Bonjour America!

READ THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE

Welcome to Canada! 🇨🇦

We hope our American friends enjoy living in Canada, as we deem our friends of America as our friendly neighbours and we hope you do come and visit CANADA on a regular basis.  

We also like to THANK YOU for all the fun we’ve had in Vegas, Nevada Arizona, California, Montana and Hawaii – we Canadians truly appreciate your patronage and warm welcome into the United States. 

BUT – the offer above is humour, as I don’t believe our Prime Minister would allow it. 

Please read :

FIRST and foremost, Canadian’s already know Americans rarely think of Canada or even care. But, we do care what happens south of us. As a business relationship, our countries trade back and forth one billion dollars, each and every day. That in itself means something. Everything United States does, effects Canada, in one way or another. 

But to most Canadians, it not only about business, it’s friendships. We want the best for Americans to. And when there’s an upset in your election, we listen. We really listen. 

The newly elect Donald Trump may be what your hoping for, but it worries us greatly. We wonder if the Electoral College system works properly ? Does it really work for the people? 

With the recent protests and young Americans placing up signs, saying,” All Power to All the People” we begin to worry. Is the Electoral College system working like it should? 

Does each vote count? 

And that’s the problem. We have the similar problem here in Canada, where each Province is counted in relationship to the population. In other words, you would need the votes of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba to all agree, in order to beat the eastern Canadian population, as in Ontario and Quebec. Unfortunately Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, all have a hard time for their vote to be counted. 

What this means, in Federal Elections in Canada 🇨🇦 Ontario and Quebec dictate the outcome of the election. Mind you, in this last Federal Election, the west and east agreed with the liberal election of our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  

An overwhelmingly majority. 

Luckily for us, Prime Minister Trudeau has worked out for all Canadians. The only thing I wish – stop spending money. 

But, as for the Electoral College and our system in Canada, it doesn’t seem to be in the favour of a true democracy. A democracy where all the people are heard, all the time. 


I believe the sign in the NY protest says it all : 

Women Power

Black Power

Gay Power

Student Power

All Power to All the People 

It will be interesting to see what happens in the next six months.  

AND – 

The Trump University court cases ? Three of them involve serious lawsuits, involving Trump and his companies in allegations of fraud and racketeering. As he settles into the White House, and it just so happens he gets charged in just one of these allegations, he will be impeached like President Nixon was in August 1974, during the Watergate scandal. 

The definition of Impeachment: a formal accusation of wrongdoing against a public official. According to the United States Constitution, the House of Representatives can vote to impeach an official, but the Senate actually tries the case.
The moral of this story ? 

All Power to All of the People all of the time.

After a year long election, everyone just wants to get back to the normality of living. But I don’t think things will be normal in the United States for the next four years.  

As far as Canada is concerned, Trump may start up the pipeline extension across the United States 🇺🇸. This will surely evoke protests and unrest, but for the Province of Alberta, it will mean prosperity. 

Four years – what will it mean to Canada 🇨🇦 and United States 🇺🇸? 

We Canadians (I do mean anyone with a brain) real do understand the importance of what happens to our Americans friends. And I do say friends, because we respect your opinion, even though we may not agree with some of them ( example: gun control). We can agree to disagree. 

And yes, it’s true, we know Americans don’t even think of Canada. Period. 

We understand a true friendship takes time to grow and we will wait, ready to welcome you into Canada, as a friend. A friend where we share the same values of freedom, lifestyle and goals for our children and grandchildren. 

And – if you’re happy with the newly elect Donald Trump, that is your right. We can only hope for the best in America, and hope for Americans to successful understanding the hopes and dreams for Canadians too. 

That’s all we can hope for. 

On that note, I would like to mention, I wrote this piece on our Freedom and what it really means. Please read it and you’ll understand a little of Canada and how we think of our freedom as you do. Thank you for listening and I truly welcome my friendly American neighbours, of which I have many. 

Cheers from Canada 🇨🇦! 

BTW – Canadians love Vegas – a lot! So much so I operate a fun Facebook Page called Vegas Reviews – come join in the FUN of Las Vegas !

The Heroes and the Courage

Photo coutesy of Fort McMurry Resident

The Heroes, The Courage, The Frustration – We are Canadians, We Stand Strong together.  

As these courageous Fire Fighters  battle this monstrous wildfire, the winds have picked up considerably, making this fire even more dangerous then ever before. It has taken on its own entity, a living creature consuming everything in its path. 

It’s now over 150,000 hectares and heading over the Saskatchewan border.

The towering flames are now 30 feet high as the high velocity winds keep feeding this ferocious uncontrollably wildfire.  I can hear the winds outside my door, howling like a wolf at night, knowing all too well, this wildfire is impossible to control. 

It may be the largest wildfire in Canadian history and quite possibly in North America.

Over 80,000 Fort McMurray residence were forced to flee as this fire consumed the city in the past week.   With very little notice, a gridlock of vehicles tried to head south, as the heat and flames towered the only road.  Some even resorted to riding out of the wildfire with their horses in tow.  

Unknown Photographer

After over ten gruelling hours on the road to Edmonton and neighbouring communities, Fort McMurray residence are now safe.   A Fort McMurray kindergarten evacuee joined up with a classroom in Edmonton, she said,”Hi! My name is Hanna and My World is on Fire!”Just heartbreaking to hear from our children.
Canadians throughout Canada are offering their homes, food and comfort as are the communities and cities.

Be safe to the Fire Fighters, the RCMP and those daring pilots, who are all taking their lives at risk to battle natures deadliest wildfire.
