As a quick glance at my recent posts will prove I have nothing against Canadians, actually I am quite fond of most of them. That I am so happy with my Canadian Red Poppy (and am devastated that I lost it) just about sums it up.

It has been a great honor and pleasure to deal with Canadians, especially ‘Nancy‘, about our joint tradition when it comes to Red Poppies.

Then I saw this last night! Though I rarely if ever swear, having decided when I was 21 that I am going to stop swearing, troopers have nothing on me when I do decide to swear. The stream of invective that I let loose at Canada, even if I say it myself, was colorful. Now as some of you also know it doesn’t take much to get me ranting about Canada as a country — and I make the distinction between individual Canadians and the country.

To me, this stupid, stupid, White Poppy is a Q.E.D. example of why I make fun of Canada — a country that CAPS Internet bandwidth (and gives asylum to Tamil Tigers).

The Red Poppy tradition stems the inspired words of a Canadian — physician, Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae.

Yes, I fully understand that many Canadians, quite rightly, are outraged.

How can YOU … even if you are Canadian and have at least partial brain cell freeze from the never ending cold do this.

White = Surrender.

White = A dead body drained of all its blood.

You will not find anybody more committed to PEACE than me.

But supporting peace does not mean that you diss all the good folks that gave their life so that we would NOT be speaking damn German and driving bloody Audis!

It is symptomatic. This is what you get in country that thinks they have the RIGHT to cap Internet bandwidth.

If you haven’t worked it out by now, I am NOT amused.

      I think that comment is idiotic.The red poppy symbolises peace. The red poppy symbolises remembrance. The red poppy symbolises sacrifice. The red poppy doesn’t glorify war anymore than the yellow dafodile glorifies cancer. Get educated, thank a vet and for one day a year forget your stupid political stripes and just do what our vets want. 1 day a year isn’t too much to ask.

        I didn’t respond earlier because I didn’t think there was anything of import that I could add to what you said so eloquently. Thank you. From what I can see the ‘white poppy’ didn’t detract or distract. That is good. As you can see I am not happy that they chose the poppy — and I don’t think there are white poppies in nature. If they had picked the lily, the French funeral flower, I wouldn’t have felt that strongly. But you are right. Don’t impinge on the ONE DAY they get. All the best. Cheers, Anura
