"CALL ME CANADIAN"

"Call Me Canadian!" is a campaign to encourage Canadians to protect and defend Canada and its values. Our logo, designed by Janet Hicks, has a Maple Leaf representing Canada, with golden flames symbolizing its values and freedoms. Both are held by stylised hands - YOUR hands - that are needed to protect our country and its values and freedoms.

Our logo reminds Canadians that the defence of Canada and our values and freedoms is in the hands of individual Canadians.

"Call Me Canadian!" is a campaign to encourage Canadians to affirm their Canadian identity as one people, one nation, with equal treatment of all citizens.

Canadians everywhere have become more aware of the need to stand up for Canada and its defining values. These values are the basis of the Canadian constitution. They call for peace, order and good government, the equality of all Canadians, and a commitment to ONE CANADA.

The "Call Me Canadian!" campaign is bringing Canadians together to put Canada First and defend its basic values from the attacks of those who are attempting to remake Canada in another image. That image, which is tearing Canada apart, puts collective rights and special interests before the individual and the common good; and it attempts to divide the nation into two, while following policies that ghettoize Canadians into different cultures and legislate preferred treatment of certain Canadians based on their language, race or gender.


The Maple Leaf Forever

In Days of yore,
From Britain's shore
Wolfe the dauntless hero came
And planted firm Britannia's flag
On Canada's fair domain.
Here may it wave,
Our boast, our pride
And joined in love together,
The thistle, shamrock, rose entwined,
The Maple Leaf Forever.

CHORUS:
The Maple Leaf, our Emblem Dear,
The Maple Leaf Forever.
God save our Queen and heaven bless,
The Maple Leaf Forever.

At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane
Our brave fathers side by side
For freedom's home and loved ones dear,
Firmly stood and nobly died.
And so their rights which they maintained,
We swear to yield them never.
Our watchword ever more shall be
The Maple Leaf Forever

[CHORUS]

Our fair Dominion now extends
From Cape Race to Nootka Sound
May peace forever be our lot
And plenty a store abound
And may those ties of love be ours
Which discord cannot sever
And flourish green for freedom's home
The Maple Leaf Forever.

[CHORUS]

* welcoming and integration of new immigrants into Canadian traditions and values
