Canada known for tolerance

One of Canada’s long cherished ways is a propensity to help countries out of intolerable situations

I would like to respond to Throddy Borkins’ apparent distress over self-preservation.

One of Canada’s long cherished ways is a propensity to help countries out of intolerable situations. Yes, immigration has its unique difficulties.

There are basically two kinds of people in this world: nice people and nasty people. It’s easily to do nothing. It can take more courage to be one of the nice people. A prime example of a nasty person is Adolph Hitler, best not go there.

No one is asking anybody to give up our identities, lifestyles or cherished ways. Some ways are worth losing. A certain hockey enforcer who paralyzed an opposing team member comes to mind.

The views stated remind me of Donald Trump. Yikes!
