    Default Oath to Queen for new Citizens Discriminatory?

    http://home.mytelus.com/p/news/sourc...ticle/24177320

    I am firmly behind the government on this one. While old and outdated, you simply don't get to strip away Canada's heritage. You don't like it? Don't come here, Canadian's have their own heritage, culture, and beliefs, and while we may be accepting of yours, that doesn't give you the right to trample over ours.

    I give the monarchy a break because they gave us silver to 1967, pure nickels to use as money from 1968 to 2011, and pennies to 2011, which is good enough.

    There are plenty of nations stuck in economic meatgrinder like the Billion mostly white paupers in the Eurozone where you have to pay $1.35 for a 7.5 gram cupronickel coin (and closer to $8 a gallon for gas)

    The article is unclear, but I think you have to "pledge your allegiance to the Crown" to come to Canada.

    Which technically means that if the Queen or a future King of England decides to invade the United States (for example) All immigrants are required to point your gun southward and start shooting.

    As a born citizen of a commonwealth nation, you technically do not have to swear an oath. Special leeway is given as a "sovereign" nation to anyone born and not just immigrated. Special leeway is also given to undefeated native populations that have never immigrated.

    Anyway, I'm of the opinion that the monarchy is an important symbol of Canadian history, but that's all it should be, a symbol. The goddamn 21st century is no place for monarchies.
    Canada should be a republic and do away with archaic laws and useless ceremonial posts.
    Upon my swearing into the military, I crossed my fingers at the Queen part.

    I'm a Canadian, and joined to serve Canada, not a bunch of foreigners that ran my ancestors off their land and into boats.

    Why do these people come to Canada...

    GTFO!

    "The Canadian Forces are the armed forces of Her Majesty raised by Canada and consist of one Service called the Canadian Armed Forces."

    The Queen is the commander and chief of the Canadian Forces, cross your fingers all you like she's still your boss.

    Born here fucktard.

    Ancestors were immigrants, just like yours.

    Pull the maple syrup enema out of your ass.

    Update: Actually, there's nothing wrong with Maple syrup enemas. They are Canadian. It's the his head that he's got to pull out of the mad cow's ass.

    That's not discriminatory at all. They ain't citizens yet. Canadian's BORN in Canada don't have to do lots of things people trying to get into the country do

    We could tell them they had to be able to jump on 1 foot for 5 minutes straight. Because it is OUR requirement, it doesn't matter how silly they think it is. What due process has to do with this I have no idea.

    It's been a requirement longer than anyone on here could remember so whether you agree with the Monarchy or not is irrelevant, it's a Canadian Citizenship requirement period and if you would like to become a citizen then you should abide by it.
    If you don't like it there are plenty of other countries to go and live in but they are far from as 'accepting' as Canada so pledge allegiance or bugger off...simple.

Give me a break... This is well within their right to due process, but don't worry, they won't get anywhere with this. It's not a god-given right of the kind the queen enjoys.
    They had three years to figure out that we like the Queen. If they don't then... GTFO! find another country....

    One of the Royal Family members seem to stop by each year if that isn't a big enough clue...

    No, they actually REALLY don't wane and change. That is why they are traditions, which Canada has few they can call Canadian. I think a significant part of Canada's history (being part of the commonwealth) is nothing to sneeze at, and your condescending attitude that just blows it off like no big deal is irritating.

    Why do you DISLIKE the tradition so much?
