Canadians Aren’t ‘Settlers.’ We’re Citizens.

The effort to repeatedly push the term ‘settler’ on everyone is part of a scheme to delegitimize the Canadian state and delegitimize the sacrifices made by those who built our nation.

Canada is a tough country.

Literally.

The terrain, the weather, and the conditions are tough.

Yet, our ancestors came here from around the world, often with nothing at all, and built this country up into an advanced industrial nation.

Building on the legal and philosophical foundations of Western Civilization, our ancestors built Canada into a country that was able to put a tremendous effort into some of the world’s most historic conflicts, including our amazing contribution in World War Two against the Axis powers, when – despite our small population – we became a manufacturing powerhouse and sent hundreds of thousands of troops to fight for freedom.

Yet, despite all the amazing contributions of our nation, those in power and in the academic elite are trying to denigrate and delegitimize it all.

Their key tool in that delegitimization is the term ‘settler.’

Apparently, we are expected to believe that every Canadian – except Indigenous People – is a ‘settler’ in Canada. Whether you were born here, whether you immigrated here, whether you were a refugee, apparently we are all nothing but ‘settlers.’

That is total bullshit.

Canadians are not settlers. We are Citizens.

As Citizens we have a right to this country.

We have a right to be proud of those who came before us and built Canada.

We have a right to be proud of the accomplishments of our nation.

We have a right to expect that the laws and rules will be applied equally to everyone.

It’s time to start pushing back against the BS ‘settler’ term, and emphasize that we are Canadian Citizens who won’t stand for the delegitimization or denigration of our nations history.

Welcome to the Globalization our politicians are imposing on us whether you like it or not.

Spencer I totaly agree with you.It makes me sick when some of these new people put themselves on the pedestal we are all emmigrants as though they have built this land.The forefathers established Canada and we must respect that .There was nothing here when the first people came, not a house or a road or a bridge.I remember my neighbour telling me when the first people came here they were given some land and nothing else.All they had is a suitecase full of seeds to start new hard life.I remember when I was a kid overseas my grandmother telling me… Read more »

Ah Spencer, what has happened to this country and can it be fixed, so sad.

Spencer; I admire your zeal. However; the bogus expression used by the elites is “We’re all immigrants.” Not “settlers.” Canada WAS settled–and pioneered–By the lateral movement of Europeans. (French and English.) The politicians are playing word games. It’s an easily proven fact that by the late 1960’s/early 1970’s Canada was still ninety-eight percent White. (Caucasian.) Settlers build a country; immigrants come to one that’s ready-made. Someone moving here today from other Western countries–Is still NOT an immigrant. Not in its pre-politically correct usage. They are part of the same stock. If I emigrate to South Korea; I’m an immigrant. Not… Read more »

Trudeau Liberals will talk with and do anything to support any group the will divide this country. We have no strong leadership to fight against this socialist government. No creditable major media to tell the truth. Most people rely on the tv and it’s supported the socialism. We are finding our schools and universities are being conditioned to teach socialism to the children. We will die as free nation if not dealt with very soon
