Dual citizenships should be banned the world over. Nothing to do with xenophobia but sheer practicality.

I haven't run into any practicality problems so far.  But then, I've only been a dual citizen since 1987, so there's still time.

I'm a dual British/Canadian citizen.  Guess whose medal count I really care about during the Olympics?

Hint:  It's not Canada's.

So you have chosen to come and live here and granted all the privileges and don't care about Canada's given privileges and care more about the old defeated empire who colonized half the world and suck their blood  for centuries?

Maybe, if we talk about two real countries.     But then you have concocted countries like Canada with no real identity and nationality.  If you strip Canada's citizens of their original citizenship, they may as well become Marsians.

Anyone with a smidgen of sense knows how blessed they are to live in Canada.  I'm also a dual citizen with Britain, but my first allegiance is to Canada, a very dynamic, safe, harmonious, and free country relative to most others.  We're not staring in the rear view mirror imposing a class system or getting mired in conflict and violence.  There's much to appreciate.

Shhh, there's 5 matches left to play and Leeds are only 6 points above 3rd place.

Plenty of time yet to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

I suspect this is the most common attitude you would get in a poll. Our city didn't run any fireworks show, but I heard plenty of em going off in the night. The silent majority hath spoken.

Dual citizenship maybe not so harmful if we talk about countries such as Canada and the UK or Finland and Sweden etc.

It becomes a problem when we talk about countries such as Canada and Afghanistan. Or the UK and Pakistan. Or Germany and Turkey.

The Turks in Germany who have the German citizenship vote in the German elections for the greens who allow more Turks to enter Germany and in the Turkish elections they vote for Erdogan's hard line islamist party.

Kind of like Canada and India.  Indians have infiltrated so many important positions, that you only see more and more of them coming into the country.    So bizarre to go to a small place like Cache Creek or my town, or any similar town and find scores of them already settled in.

The video says nothing about whether or not those same people in those pictures are all that happy about living in Canada today? I guess that if one is a liberal socialist  or communist or a new immigrant, than ya, Canada is a great place to be living in these days. It's just to hard to have to say " H----- C----- D--". I need more than just pictures of some guy telling me that I should be happy and lucky to be living in Canada today. I can believe that there are millions of Canadians that are not happy about and living in Canada today.

The only way that I can be happy living in Canada once again is to get rid of everything that old man comrade Trudeau signed into law. Plus this hoax of a virus is not helping me all that much either to feel proud to be Canadian. It is thanks to liberalism, socialism and communism that has not made Canada great anymore. Those three ism's have pretty much destroyed this once great nation. And just maybe that guy on his bike is not all that much up or pays all that much attention to politics in Canada. Just saying. ;)

You could always try living in the middle east for a year....that should cure you of your ills....

There would probably be more to appreciate about Canada if we could get rid of all of those leftist liberals, pinko conservatives, NDP socialists/communists, and those crazy in the head environmentalist party's that have and not done anything good of great for Canada except they all tried to bankrupt and destroy this once great British/European nation. And flooding Canada with millions of people from all over the world has not done Canada a favor at all. All this massive immigration has done for Canada is to create traffic gridlock, attacks on the environment and infrastructure, and pretty much has bankrupt our medical and social services. 

Canada appears to be less harmonious and less free, especially ever since this China virus hoax was forced on Canadians. How can there be any Canadian being happy about being told to stay at home, practice social distancing, and wear a clown mask? We have lost plenty of freedom to be able to do what we use to be able to do just four months ago. Canadians are now at the mercy of their dear Canadian political comrade leaders, their lying leftist liberal media, the lying so called health officials, and those hospital administrators who report false flag virus numbers. So, I need you to show me as to why you still think Canada is such a great country?  Give me something, and some hope, will you? I await your reply anxiously. ;)

At one time Canadians were once a free and patriotic people who would have never accepted this China virus hoax like they do today. In those days men were men, and they would never allow themselves to be pushed around by our dear comrade leaders, and the lying media, like those two can do today to Canadians. Sadly, most Canadians have been reduced and have accepted without question or a whimper to just staying at home and watch TV, no watching hockey games anymore, drinking beer, and practice social distancing, wear a clown mask and stay at home. What kind of a life is this that we have been forced to accept has real and the new normal now? Real men would have just shrugged it off as a joke and went to the bar and had a few beers or went to sports games, and sat there with thousands of others cheering and laughing. No more now. We are now told as to how many people can get together.

The other day I was driving along 0 Avenue in Surrey and Langley in BC, a road that runs parallel with a Washington state road on the BC and Washington borders, and there I saw many people on both sides of the border sitting and talking to each other from both sides. They were not even practicing social distancing or wearing a clown mask. Good for them. Maybe I should have not said this as some stunned politician may try to put an end to this  terrible practice and social madness going on at the border. How sad has this become when people can only get together and get to see each other on the border line, and visit family or friends. We can thank our dear political comrade leaders for this silly foolishness. 

Canadians are not only quiet, they are too obedient, too docile, and who will accept whatever their dear leaders tell or order them to do without question or a whimper. Canada is certainly not the country it once was just four months ago. Now it looks more like we are living in some communist like country now.  Welcome to the new normal. How you liking it so far, eh? ;)

Nope, no way, man. My ills have been cured a long time ago. I have no need nor want to go live in some Middle Eastern country for a second. I have seen enough of what life is like living in some of those Middle Eastern countries on TV. Most of them are nothing but hell and shit holes. As a matter of fact, i would never want to even go live in some third world country either.

I never see thousands of Canadians wanting to immigrate to a Middle Eastern or third world country. If they did then they have to be nuts in the head. But I do see plenty of people trying to get into Canada, legally or illegally, which tells me that life is a lot better and safer and free living in some Western country rather than living in most of those third world countries.  At not trying to sound or appear racist but life in a Western country is a lot better to be living in than living in a non western looking country. The difference between the two are massively different. Just saying. ;)
