Our own government is using our tax money to advocate for the genocide of it's own people. Obviously the Liberals and the redditors here will ask, "But whats wrong with white people going extinct, white is only a skin color?" The problem here is that Africans, Arabs, the Chinese etc. do not share our history and as such they have no incentive to protect, preserve, and teach the history of European 'Western Civilization', as we see here.
Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe when Canada has a population of 100,000,000 and the largest religion in this country is Islam, and the most popular language in Canada is Cantonese we will look back at the people that created this country as us rather than them, but that is a huge risk to take. We've already seen this happen. For example, we have already seen the push for curriculum that reflect the diversity of schools, which means no more white male authors in 2100 for example. Canadian History Class will begin with the advent of multiculturalism in Canada, with other units on 'The Migrant Crisis' and 'Western Imperialism'. The Seven Years war in Canada? No longer relevant in the slightest.
What about the cultural products of Western Civilization? Is the Miserere going to be sung by Muslims? Can anyone find any recordings of the Lux æterna done by an Islamic choir? What about the Pietà; will African immigrants to Canada in 2040 consider it their cultural legacy? These are real worries that are not rooted in 'supremacy'. We have already seen what has happened to the uniquely British elements of our culture in Canada, can someone assure me that our culture as a whole is safe?

"can someone assure me that our culture as a whole is safe?"

If people like you take over, no.

"largest religion in this country is Islam, and the most popular language in Canada is Cantonese"

You're being taken over by Chinese speaking muslims?

Your culture of xenophobia and ignorance are not going anywhere.

Culture is a fluid thing; there isn't One True Culture sealed in amber. The things we ascribe meaning to change from person to person, city to city, decade to decade. That's natural. Culture is created by consensus, not by some old guy sitting behind his desk saying "that, and that, but not that, or that".

Also, the phrase "uniquely British elements of culture" is pretty laughable. Look into how they got those elements in the first place, unless you're thinking of druidism and kilts (hint: you're probably not).

@Mister Spak: The Chinese thing is true (the leading source of immigrants to Canada, alongside India and the Philippines). And the Islam thing is true... sort of. It's the second-largest religion in Canada, but accounts for only 3.2% of the population, as against 67.2% for Christianity taken as a group - but only if you discount the 23.9% "non-religious", which I'm guessing accounts for the lion's share of those Chinese immigrants.

You are worried about the loss of three specific religious songs, which sound Catholic given the language, when the vast majority of all music in human history has vanished. I don't hear you mourning the loss of all but one song by the Hurrians, the lack of lyre compositions by nameless masters of Greece, the missing flute scores of ancient Chinese geniuses, or the chants of First Nation peoples that were erased from the world.

Your personal world is so tiny, so parochial, so pathetic it almost makes me pity you rather than despise you.

One of the most significant "cultural products of Western Civilization" is the concept that the world is bigger than one's own back yard, and we are big enough and bold enough to embrace immigrants who are not exactly like us. Well, I guess that boldness is gone now.

And we get to the end of that screed, and apparently your big, burning question is "who's gonna sing in the choir"...

This is pretty clever actually. If they kill everyone then there will be nobody left to stand in the way of tax rate hikes.

Uh... You do know that Canada was founded by the merging of three disparate cultures to begin with, right? It wasn't just British Loyalists...

Yet another dumbass who thinks not keeping minorities in the minority = genocide of white people.
