Here is my rant:
I have been in Canada for 12 years, although I have integrated very well into Canadian society, I once thought long ago that I will never become a Canadian nor would I never wanted to become Canadian. When I first came to Canada I found the people to sleepy for my liking. I come from a country where the blood runs hot, a country that is alive in culture and people who are not scared to interact or tell people what they think about the world and about the dumb move you just did, where people dont run from comfrontations, and help others in need. But 12 years later I am a Canadian citizen and I am proud to be one, and I now understand Canadian culture alot better. But I also hate something about Canadian culture, and that is that it allows other cultures to live inside Canada like they are not part of Canada, like they could well be in a different country. Let me give you an example, today I was walking on #3 Road in Richmond and half the signs I read I could not understand. Firstly I do not speak Chinese or whatever langauge it was in, and secondly it did not have a English Translation. I got pissed!. Why the fuck is this store excluding Canadians, English/French speaking and including only their own culture, and ethnicities? Its almost like they are living in their own country and not Canada. This shit should not be allowed, when I first came to Canada and I knew almost no English, and the only friend i had at school was my brother, whenever we talked in our own language we were yelled at and told to speak only English, and why not? But when I was in highschool teachers were scared to say anything to the asian kids who only spoke Chinese. I feel like an outsider some places I go, it is just too strange, When i go to "asian" malls it feels like people are eying me like I dont belong there, I feel like an outsider in my own country, and it really bugs me.
Another thing that bugs me is people who do not integrate into this society. Like muslim women who still wear those fucken space suits or whatever they are, and the men who look at young women showing some skin ass infidels. I look at cases like France that have a huge muslim minorty and I get scared for Canada and hope they dont do the same mistake. The French are pissed off at the muslims who dont want to become french becuase they harash the French. i have some family there and they tell me that muslim men i highschool threaten Christian girls and others to cover their heads, and thats the reason why European nations are trying to ban the use of religious clothing from schools, work etc.
There is my rant,I i am not racist or anything I just think things are going to far, and Canada and the world should tell their immigrant either become part of our society or dont even come here. Even though i believe you can never make someone to give up their own culture or religion or should you they should accept that this is English/French speaking Canada, I mean I did not Immigrate to Canada to live in China.
