    Sometimes? They're the biggest pussies on the continent. At the North end of a whole hemisphere of Cartel funded dictatorships​ and bloated nuclear powers you get Canada. Britain's disguarded foreskin.

    You Canadians are a right pack of wankers sometimes.
    I’ll post the whole quote.

    "You people ... that come here, whatever it is, you love our way of life, you love our milk and honey," Cherry said. "At least you could pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life, that you enjoy in Canada."

    Why is he singling our immigrants? There are plenty of ungrateful natural born citizens who don’t GAF..

    also I think it’s understandable if you don’t think you need a poppy for remembrance day. Not everyone is a fan of the legion and I wouldnt begrudge any aboriginal for not wanting to take part at all.

    That was a stupid thing to say anywhere...

    I would like to see you lace up some skates and put a stick in your hand

    I hadn't realized the full context. Thank you.

    '“I am no advocate of passivity,” Coffin Mott said in an 1860 speech. “Quakerism, as I understand it, does not mean quietism. The early Friends were agitators; disturbers of the peace; and were more obnoxious in their day to charges, which are now so freely made, than we are.”'

    Really though, the Canadian view is much nicer, imho.

    As some wag on reddit put it, Cherry fell foul of the “300,000 strikes and you’re out” rule. The guy is 85, he’s not going to get any more tolerant.
