  1. Good morning everyone! Lovely day this is. I hope we're all doing well, feeling and being well to each other. Try to follow a proper example of how to behave in society.

  2. Yes I was Mr.Canada as many of you have guessed, yeah right. It was correct assumption. I tried to get around ban and I was banned again. I will no longer be visiting this forum. That seems to be what the mods think so I might as well admit it...not!

      I am shocked, shocked to find that people have multiple sock puppets here!

      You bring this upon yourself.... But then, that's exactly what you want....

  3. I have myself recently become a victim of cyber-bullying and am finally gaining the strength to come forward and face my tormentors directly. It's a shame so many have to suffer this abuse in silence and are to afraid to come forward and yell STOP! Amanda Todd took her own life as a result of bullying as have a number of other teenagers and people in general. it's terrible that people who hide behind a computer screen can wield so much power. The power to destroy someones life, the power to keep that person down, the power to drive that person to kill themselves. It's terrible and it's happening everyday, all around us. Even here on MLW. Not only directed at me but to others as well. Shameful. Anyone who thinks they are being bullied should tell someone right away. Don't wait too long, it can damage your psyche. This definitely can help people who are being bullied on forums like these. One solution is to avoid the forums altogether but in my mind that lets the bully win and reduces the enjoyment of life for the person being bullied. On the forums here and elsewhere their seems to be a pile on effect where as one person starts the bullying then others join in on the "fun" then their is a whole mob of people who are tormenting this one person on the forum. Still useful for me to include some ways to avoid being bullied here in this thread. Here is a great resource I found to help those who are experiencing cyberbullying or know someone who has. http://www.cyberbullying.ca/
  4. I haven't watched a game since Bettman took over and I will not watch one until he is gone.
  5. Woke up this morning having a mug of tea reading MLW. Hoping the cyber-bullying will stop as it makes my pain worse and makes me very sad. Do ppl here want me to just die and go away?

      Try rebooting under another persona. That will make the pain stop.

      I have no idea what you mean. It's against forum policy to have more than one account so I cannot do that. I can only be myself, I have no other choice.

      Against forum policy? No it isn't. You just aren't supposed to try to get around a ban or suspension. But there's no rule saying you can't reboot. Your pain is cured.

  6. I bring my own bags for shopping. Partially to do my bit for the environment and partly because so many stores plastic bags are now that thin plastic that isn't very strong and tears easily. FreshCo still has that thick plastic bags as does No Frills but the rest I think have that thin crinkly kind that just aren't very good for anything so I bring my own.

  8. I knew you were native right away even if I just saw your pic without the name. Your cheekbone structure gives it away. I lived in Prairies for a spell and many reserves out there. Many natives everywhere. I've seen and been around my share of Natives. There isn't a favorable view in general of Natives out there and they still call them Indians. They are basically the blacks of the Prairies in the view of many whites out there. In terms of crime and violence. This isn't my view but the view of many western people.I personally have never had any problems with any of them, ever and have always gotten along well with Natives. I have had a native girlfriend out there and a few in Toronto in my younger days.
  9. Let's play nice together, ok? I like your avatar pic so lets be nice to each other.
  10. We can all agree that things are looking bad if you're a white male. Not like the good old days.
  11. The government dept is called "Indian Affairs". Is that also offensive? I have grown up knowing you as Indians and you'll always be Indians to me. Nothing derogatory at all just a racial term like white, black or coloured. You need to relax and stop being constantly offended by everyone and everything that isn't your native culture.
  12. They sure are. I have a permanent physical disability I suffered from a slip and fall accident outside my apartment. I had a discectomy and spinal fusion from c3-c6 in my neck. The discs in my neck in those areas were removed and the vertebrae bones were cut down and replaced with cadaver bones. I was in hospital for 8 weeks learning to walk again. So don't tell me I don't have a real disability. I'm on ODSP right now. I can tell you for certain that some people aren't really disabled. To think that every single person on or trying to get on ODSP is really disabled is slightly naive I think.
  13. "Canadians" includes the Indian nation people. You seem to want to keep people divided instead of bringing people together. The Indian people need to start managing their money in a more responsible way. They cannot even provide for their own people properly. Disgusting!
  14. Can you please stop self promoting. This is a discussion site.
  15. The Indians have been compensated enough over the years to cover the costs of any land value. The government has given the Indians hundreds of billions of dollars over the years. They've poorly managed that money, that's not our problem. We need to sell all the reserves to the bands, cut off the billions we give them in aid and let them fend for themselves. They've had a free ride for generations, enough is enough really and truly. Free housing, free land, free world class university education, free money every month of every year for life. Being an Indian is like winning the lotto, just sit back and wait for the cheque to come in. When they run out of money they stage a little protest. I don't understand why Indians are committing so many crimes and killing themselves, they have it made in the shade. The easy life handed to them. All because of their race and be cause of where their ancestors happened to be from. Racist and xenophobic are terms that come to mind when describing the life on a reserve. This is something to be celebrated?
  16. Remembers fondly of a time when men were men and women were women and everyone knew their place in the world. Now it is so confusing and this is leading to so much needless fighting. We need to go back to the good old days.

      Back when there was no wheelchair access everywhere? "The good old days weren't always good, and tomorrow ain't as bad as it seems".

      No, it's true. many things are better today but many things were also good then as well. Still isn't wheelchair access everywhere though, a lot better yes.

      Oh yeah, the good ol' days! Women knew their place... as did blacks, FN's, Chinese, etc etc...

  17. They can go on welfare or if they can convince a doctor, disability. Many, many options for able bodied who do not wish to work.
  18. Oh boo hoo! Who cares. No more special treatment for any people in Canada. We keep saying that Canada is for all people to treated equally but it seems like to me that all non whites are treated specially in Canada and white people are seen as the enemy in all things. So do you think that white people in England should be given special treatment and billions of tax dollars each year free to freely spend simply for being white?
  19. So black police officers cannot understand the white communities? Is that what you're saying? If one is true then opposite must also be true.
  20. The Indians only want to "talk" or have "talks" or "meetings" if they get their own way in the end, otherwise they'll pull a temper tantrum like a bunch of two year olds and "protest". By protest I mean illegally trespass of course. I don't see the white people in England getting special treatment and afforded special rights because they were there first. This woman is doing nothing but hurting her cause and I think people in general are sick and tired of the Indians and their endless whining. Go out and get a job and stop depending on daddy government to give you a hand out is a great place to start. Doesn't she see that she's only ensuring that future generations will be just as hopeless as they are now in the reserves? The Indians need real leadership and right now they don't have it.
  21. All of these civil uprisings are being helped by the USA of course. Don't be naive, the US is removing the governments it doesn't want to deal with any more. It's called a proxy war.
  22. Can we please have some order and decorum?
  23. Accidents happen, it's a part of life. No big deal and nothing new.if it happened in Canada it would be a factory fire but since it happened in a far away land people like to attach buzz words to it like "sweat shop". Give me a break, it was a factory fire, they happen, it's terrible of course but it happens. Let's move on and for get about it.
  24. I had planned on seeing this soon. Good to know that this movie is good. it looked great in the adverts. Thanks for no spoiler.
