Actually, it's titled:
And here's what every new immigrant should look at before signing on to be a citizen:
Design by Pale Cold from A Creative Revolution
Basically, it's high on promoting the military big time and of course, next to nothing regarding arts and culture.
Advice to Potential New Citizens
"(There's) a growing consensus that we need to recover a sense of civic memory, civic literacy about our democratic institutions and the history in which they are rooted," Kenney said.
Hmmm, with the events of late such as scrapping the Long Gun Registry, thus, beginning the journey toward No Gun Control, the move toward the U.S. health care system, a very pro-military stance in this new document of Kenney's,
THINK AMERICA under Georgie Bush and Dickie Cheney.
About that pro-military stance of Kenney's which new immigrants must aspire to: while he says it isn't compulsory, one must read between the lines here:
a "noble way to contribute to Canada and an excellent career choice."
Well, boys and girls, just think, if it were soooo noble and such a great career choice, how come Steve, Kenney or most of the Harpercons never enlisted? Also remember, the military seems to have a shortage in personnel and most who are natural born citizens just don't want to join it these days.
Oh yeah! It also tells you it's your duty to vote; just one snag though; they mean, vote for them.
It also talks about volunteering. Remember, these folks never volunteer for anything.
In discussing gender equality, in this guide. Congratz, ladies! You've simply moved to the status of left winged fringe.
Oh, just because there is not much indicated about arts and culture, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It simply means it's not important to the Harpercons.
And so, boys and girls, remember, it's not hard to be smarter than most Harpercons: Apparently things like University education is optional to be a Harpercon and to be a Harpercon senator, literacy is also optional.
You can get the translate version of Kenney's guide here.
The booklet will also be made available to schools, to give all Canadians a better sense of common values.
Common, of course, means Conservative. Good luck Future Conservatives oops! I meant Canadians! (Or is that American Rednecks?)
