View Full Version : Tsk, Tsk, Tsk Canada
"What started as a simple request to wear a pendant containing passages from the Qur'an spiralled into a daily dose of harassment for a Muslim cadet at the RCMP training academy, the Canadian Human Rights Commission heard yesterday."
"The request was based on the commission's failure to consider RCMP statistics, which show a 7 per cent attrition rate among cadets as a whole, but a rate of almost 16 per cent among visible minorities. The rate, calculated from 1996 to 2001, includes both dismissals and resignations from the force."
U.S. eyes terror tag for Iranian force.
Just add Canada to the list and be done with it!
Nice to see you find a moral equivalence between Canada and Iran.
Nevertheless, it is going to be difficult, even with this Administration, to convince Congress drunk moose, angry beavers, and a navy consisting of three rubber ducky floaties and a slingshot constitute a 'terrorist threat'.

From Speedy's link:
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Tahmourpour, 35, began his second hearing in front of the commission yesterday by painting a bleak picture of an RCMP unwilling to accept diversity within its academy. </div></div>
This is the same RCMP that in 1990 allowed Sikhs to wear turbans?
Now you're getting a taste of what U.S. institutions have been dealing with for a while now.
The accusation doesn't have to be true; just the implication does enough damage.
Yes, poor him.
"Mississauga realtor Ali Tahmourpour has spent seven years and more than $30,000 trying to achieve his dream of becoming a Mountie and a ruling by the Canadian Human Rights Commission is taking him a step closer to the force."
But Hans if this was an American story you would post it to show how unfair and rotten America is.
He tried for 7 years. Something tells me there's more to this story, because it's obvious he was rejected before for some reason(s).
Tsk Tsk Tsk Canada? LOL
American is bombing Iraq, killing thousands of innocent people, braing washing their soldiers to beleive that they are serving a "duty", watching their own people die in the hands of Iraqi people. All for Oil rights.
And you say Tsk Tsk Tsk Canada for some stupid harassment case?
You have redneck hillbilly wife beaters living in trailer parks teaching their kids how to "shoot em sumfin". Hand guns on the rise, drug problems, more murders per capita. And Tsk Tsk Tsk Canada?
Dude, your brainwashed to beleive that you are are in a great country /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
I'd rather walk downtown ghetto Toronto, then even some redneck backroad.
That's why you are the second-largest landmass in the word, with one of the lowest populations in the world???
Yup, people breakin' down the ol' door to get into Canada!
Yeah to live in the frigid unlivable north. Alot of Canadas land mass is inhabitible. (sp) meaning you can't set up shop there unless you build an igloo. Look at a map buddy /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
Plus people are flocking to America under false pretenses. Land of oppurtunity. Sure.
85% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the U.S. border. That means there is a hell of a lot of land just sitting there that is not much more frigid in the winters than what we have here.
And, we are no longer hunter-gatherers...we have indoor heat!! As such, if Canada was such a special and blessed place she would have people breaking down the toll gates to get in.
I know why it is like that, but it looks like you have no idea.
Because you all want to be American.
