Let’s not lose our Canadian identity

As a former member of the news media, I feel I should speak out on the use of Merry Christmas at this time of year.

As a former member of the news media, I feel I should speak out on the use of Merry Christmas at this time of year.

Recently on a radio station in Vancouver, an immigrant spoke out on the need for Canadians to take back our culture. Say Merry Christmas.

A small video making the rounds even suggested that if a business does not have Merry Christmas in the window, don’t shop there.

Schools, businesses, and the media are bowing to the minority.  To those that do not like our Merry Christmas way of life, get over it.  This is Canada.

I know I speak for a lot of Canadians, Canadians fearing we are losing our culture and identity.

Wake up Canada, say Merry Christmas, God Save The Queen, say the Lord’s Prayer in School, and sing O’ Canada and believe in our country!

Merry Christmas to all
