1907 PHOTO This one needs to circulate

I got this from my friend Pat Huard that was with me at 2MP PL in CFB Petawawa, I thought I would share it with you.

Every Canadian citizen needs to read this! 

I think this is one email that needs to be forwarded until every Canadian with a computer receives it. 
The year is 1907, one hundred and 3+ years ago. 

Wilfrid Laurier ideas on Immigrants and being a Canadian in 1907. 

”In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faithbecomes a Canadian and assimilates himself to us,
 he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else,
 for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed,
 or birthplace, or origin..
  But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet a Canadian, and nothing but a Canadian...
  There can be no divided allegiance here.
   Any man who says he is a Canadian, but something else also, isn't a Canadian at all.
  We have room for but one flag, the Canadian flag...
  And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the Canadian people.”
Wilfrid Laurier 1907
