I am a Canadian citizen. I happened to be born in Canada almost 70 years ago, but that is not the point as it doesn’t matter if I was born in Canada or if I ( or my family ) made a conscious decision to come to Canada and become Canadian citizens. A Canadian citizen is a Canadian citizen, period, end. My ancestral family came to Canada in 1840 from England. This origin again matters not…I do not now, nor have I ever, identified as an “English-Canadian”, or any other “something-Canadian”. I am a Canadian citizen, period, end. It should be noted that people born in Canada, like me, are never called on to swear allegiance to Canada, while those that do make a conscious decision to come here and help us make this country a good place to be do swear allegiance to Canada ( and to the queen, but that is a different subject ) While we are on the subject of origin though, I will say again that I do not now, nor have I ever, identified as ’something’ other than, well, just me, a Canadian…even though no less of an authority than the U.S. based organization National Geographic’s Genographic 2.0 Project tells me ( after testing my DNA ) that my ancestry is comprised of 2% native american, 17% southwestern asian, 37% mediterranean, and 45% northern european. Further, spread across all of the foregoing ancestries, I apparently carry a 2.9% portion of neanderthal in my make up. The point of this ancestral information is simply for the sake of my own curiosity, it has no bearing whatsoever on my citizenship. So, to the point of not using labels for people, I am not a ‘something-Canadian’ nor is anyone else. We are all Canadians, end, period. There is no such thing as a ‘something- Canadian’. Think about it, who do you see in the mirror ?…yourself of course, and, if you are lucky, or have had the courage to come here and become one, a Canadian. One more thing...I do not like having our places of birth on our passports by default. We are citizens of Canada, a free and democratic country. If another country doesn’t want us to visit their country because of where we were born then we don’t want to go to that country.
