I like the sentiment.. and hwo expressive it is. I am canadian, we have our dayon the 1st of the month as to your 4th. Canada is different, oour day
of celebration was created to hide the fact that, while british immigrants were give land and supplies and even paed to take land in this country,
immigrants of chinese decent were charged a "Head Tax". Given no land and no money when they payed this "Head tax". I've seen videos of the
meetings where they cited "This is White man counrty, if we want it to stay that way then we must kep the chinese out". I am of Native decent,
meaning from the aboriginal inhabtants of canada, So to me this has never and never will be white man country. And for me celebrating this freedom
is like celebrating injustice. Sorry to take your post the other way, but knowledge is power....
