Ok, now I've said this before, that it would be cool to make a clan Canada with a bunch of Canadian players... Kind of in hopes that the Americans might do the same... I don't know, but it would be interesting and might spark some controversy and arguements over who is better...

Just wondering about the general opinion of this idea.. Is anyone interested in maybe making something of this in the future?

The only thing I'd hate about this idea would be not letting some friends in due to the fact that they aren't Canadian. IE: Jing..

Here are some noticeable Canadian players:

Pic
Sal
Alex AKA Shin
Goto
TheBest? - I'm not sure whether he's more from japan or canada..

Anyways, those are just some examples of good Canadian players, and I know there are quite a bit more..

Have you ever wanted to show the world how great Canada is? Or just show the USA that we outbest them in a WAR game, well, here's your chance!

If you are a Canadian and are interested in this idea, or maybe just interested in declaring your Canadian pride, either way, post here.

I personally think that we'd pwn nations to the tee.. As we already have. :D

I myself wouldn't mind wearing the canadian flag here.. For once, it might be something worth standing for.

I'll join under one condition.

You can get Sal to play seriously again (and have him in the clan).

That would be very hard to do, considering Sals stubborness.. If he joins, or even comes back to play seriously, it would be totally on his own will.. In other words, I can'y manipulate him to come back on my own...

Yeah... referring to what I said earlier to pic... It would be hard to get Sal to join.. But now that think about it, it might be impossible.. Simply because he's from quebec... and... well.. you see.. in Quebec.. people tend to think that they are in their own country... but what they can't see is our big red Canadian flag hovering above them..

On a side note.. there's almost enough Quebecers here alone to make their own clan. Of course, Canada would still own them. :P

I think Thruster, Sandyx and Storm are canadian also. And I probably forgot lot of people.


Also, Thruster will surely remember, I have done canadian flag for clan X. A Canadian X Flag, as long as a American X flag and a Japan X flag for TheBest.

I stand by what I said - If you can get Sal I'm in.

And... I'm from Canada (ovb) - you don't have to explain quebec to me or sal's position on the matter. But this is a game, not politics.

If Sal went to the olympics, I'm sure he would go, even if it it ment being on team Canada. (I'm just guessing here)

If i had to be on team canada for olympics id do it because in quebec, on the news, they tend to seperate quebecors from canadians when giving the scores :)

Also whoever says I liked france should shoot himself right now -.-

Now as for playing a serious round...lol I enjoy sleeping 18 hours straight when I dont work..so i'd miss turns and that would mean not being serious :S And...canadian clan :S I'd join only if there was a Quebec squad.

I dunno...I'll think about it.

bulleye Alex :D

We and Voddy are from Montreal, Québec, Canada

As for the difference between the Québec and the Canada, it mainly in it people.

since 300 years, both (french an english) of our culture have devellope side by side, hardly mixing up. The result was some minor to major difference in our behavior, beer store is the best exemple. In Quebec you can buy beer and alcool almost everywhere, but in other Canadian province you can perchase only in the beer store.

It doesnt mean that we despise the Canada and hate it. It just that since there is so little of us, we get closer and support each other, giving us a preference over the rest of the Canada.

Else then that, it just two flag for the same country.


As for the Clan Canada, i'm in for the adventure. For a round or two it would be really nice :D

btw, Ilidan too is Canadian

LMAO @ Your explanation! Indeed, it may be the core of the hatred. lol

Anyways, I'm glad to see all the responces!

I think that the more quebecers the better. Quebecers give Canada a unique style. And of course there would be a Quebec Squad. I think it would be great idea to have Sal ahead of that.. Seeming as he is the best Quebecer in english and nations at the same time..

So Sal, get your butt out of bed and come back to nations for atleast a round!

In reference to Guilda's post, most Quebecois Canadians have a complex that makes them believe they should be a seperate country. In actuality, Quebec wouldn't go very far without all the money they recieve from the Federal Government. I say let them leave... watch a "nation" crumble and come back home to Canada; the country that even allows seperatists a homeland.

Honestly, I think that Quebec leaves a rich imprint on Canada's timeline, but if they want to leave and be their own people, then all the power to them. I'm tired of all the french -vs- english that goes on. Quebec wouldn't be as great as it is if it wasn't in Canada, and Canada wouldn't be as great without Quebec. End of story.

Shady, it is only because you aren't considering the souverainist mouvement.

Because yes there is a different between being independant, and being "souverain".

I'm sure that Canada and Quebec benefits of each other, that is why the economic relation must. However, about the "decisionel" power and about where the money goes and for what, it would better managed if each province would take care of their money.

Of course, there has to be some power let to the federal, like the army, diplomatic relation between other country, however, these decision would be decided by a commum agreement between leader of the different province.

And beyond all that, Quebec is a nation by itself. We have our own culture, own language, own powersupply. We do things differently then the other province.

Of course, you have as valuable reason for us to stay in Canada, however we will always think of us like a nation, see how we celebrate June 24th compare to July 1st.

3872 Days, 18 Hrs, 31 Min, 17 Sec ago
That is one of the main reasons that there are such strains between the French and English sides of Canada. The English say "Whatever, they're another province" but Quebec goes "We are our own culture, and as such we will have nothing to do with these English speaking riff-raff"

Don't get me wrong, I love french Canada. I am part quebecois in heritage. I just don't believe that they are superior in any way. Only equal.
Alex said on: 2007-05-10 07:46 pm
3872 Days, 17 Hrs, 55 Min, 12 Sec ago
different doesn't mean superior.

We are equal, only different. You can't compare Quebec to any other province of Canada.

Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, we can compare them. Ontario is little different because of the national capital, Ottawa and the other big city Toronto. Maritime province... globally they seems the same (globaly... 2 L or just one?)

I don't know much about British Colombia.

We should deal with unbalances after we make the clans. ex - if Canada is to big we get Quebec to separate.

Alex...French is spoken in Louisianna yet i didnt say he wanted to be a Cajun. I simply said France because yes..in terms of "quebuecois" culture i am completely uneducated, however, unless you can give me a brief history of Texas (where im from) without looking it up, dont call me uneducated.

And i doubt Canada is that different but here in the US we take:

Georgraphy
American history
World history
Our State's History
We even have European History

Unfortunately..for some reason...Quebec history doesnt pop up in our courses of study..I dunno why not...

I made an incorrect assumption based on a few off hand comments sal had made and i apologized for it, no need to attempt to "burn" me.

Guild - The difference is is that there may be french speaking people in louisiana, but we have a french NATION inside our own.

You are also slightly wrong in a sense as well.. In canada, we grow up not only learning about Canada, but of the USA as well. In fact, there is much time spent learning about the USA IE R?eciting every president in order etc... You just picked the wrong person to answer your question, because Quebecens like themselves too much to even give a thought to the Americans.

SS, we have history course about US. It is falcutative thought, and it is offered in secondary 5. We also had an history course in secondary 2 which was a global course about history, starting from the old Mesopotamian to the industrial age passing by the Pharaon and the discovery of America and the Boston Tea Party. In secondary 4 I had a course about Quebec history, like every nation has a course about their history.

If I would have like to go further, I could have taken other course of history, but it would have been useless for the profession I want to do.

I wasn't essential for us, it isn't about we care less, it is because we choose to learn what is judge usefull for us. Of course, we might just misjudge (can we say that? ) and too bad for us, we will have to take an history course later on.

Lets calm down everybody,

history is one of the biggest field of science. It all depends how deep we want to dig in it and where.

In Québec, since we dont have a veru huge history, most of the time we study the becoming of Europe, then Canada and Quebec.

After that we study worldwide history, more precicely the world developpement.

In USA, from what I,ve read they will study more were they come and their nation history, in Québec they prefer the Europe history since it is where we come from.

In every cases, we dont have choice of wich coures we take since our path is limited by the choices of our governement or our school, they teach what they see fit and that it.

If you start a debat about history, debate about who made the choices and why, not about those who must live with it.

Bush wasnt a bad president his first term, he did moderately well. And i agree...he stole the elections the first time, but im happy he did. Al Gore would not have handled 9/11 the way Bush did. Say what you want about how much Bush sucks, i will agree with you whole-heartedly, but he performed wonderfully the first few monthes following 9/11.

And thanks for the chill pill cyric, everyone was getting a little edgy.

So as nice as this is to get us all talking about doing country wars we would really need to get some help from the admins/mods.

Some type of sign up sheet to help organize this whole idea.

A social science is not a science!
(even if it might have science in the name)

-------------------

science:

1. a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws: the mathematical sciences.

2. systematic knowledge of the physical or material world gained through observation and experimentation.

3. any of the branches of natural or physical science.

------------------

Also,

1) Talk to any historian and ask them “are you a scientist?” and see what kind of response you get.

2) History in many universities isn’t even considered a social science; it tends to fall under the humanities. (like English/dramatic arts/music)

3) A degree in history falls under a B.A. (bachelor of arts), not a B.Sc. (bachelor of science).

Ok pic you win

buy still:

science is a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths systematically arranged and showing the operation of general laws

The study of history to analyse the futur could fit it this description.

Note that I said C O U L D

and not does


As for when, how and for how long, I answer

Anytime, With a clan leader ( do we vote for it?? ) and for maybe 2 rounds. 1 to see how it goes and 1 for the real competition.

... Stupid Quebec ruining perfectly good things, like countries and threads.=P You b**** about cultural desecration when you're not even forced to learn English or adopt British, German, Irish, etc. cultural stuff (the majority of Canada). Go back to France if you want to live with no non-French culture. Also, remember that Canada is NOT a largely homogeneous country! Take Scandinavia. People there have been there for hundreds and thousands of years. They're all pretty much the same culturally because there was little immigration just 200 years ago. But Canada has people from f***ing everywhere. We have hundreds of cultures, and no one culture dominates. This cultural BS is around because we are a new country! We are still clinging to our ancestry! In Europe, people have been in the same country for f***ing ever. They came from somewhere else and experienced the same BS we do today, only they're causing it here thousands of years later. In a few hundred years, "Canadian" will be a legitimate nationality, instead of "yeah I'm English, Swedish, ..."
Plus religion and war has destroyed more cultures than there are French people kthx. Look at the Indians we kicked off our land and now have living in rundown reserves. Oh s*** double standard.






I think it would be better to make individual clans for provinces and states. I know there are a lot of people from BC, and a lot from Alberta and Quebec as well. Perhaps a western Canada, eastern Canada, and Maritimes clan system. The US could have West, Midwest, South, East, etc. In fact, just have western NA, central NA, and eastern NA. West > *.

Aboriginals/First nations/ Natives/Indians/Whatever. I am done with Social Studies now so I don't have to deal with that PC stuff anymore, even if it is technically correct. I'll be ignorant like everyone else and call them Indians, just like everyone calls African-(country of residence) Blacks. Should I be called a European-Canadian? Who cares?


How do I not know my facts? French Canadians want their own culture, sovereignty, home land, whatever. I am largely correct. Just fill in the blanks, like you can do with my censored words. How should I censor them? Don't tell me to type without them, because remember, this is the Internet, not RL. i can typ liek dis lawl nd u cnt do a tihng aboot it lool


And, guywhotypesinbold, where am I being racist or discriminatory? Discrimination, may I remind you, means making a distinction. Racism also generally refers to race. FFS I was saying that the original, native, inhabitants of North America have more of a right to be here than we do, and they have all but lost their culture, their land to us, but do we care? Their languages are dying out, their people are in worse, or nearly as bad, poverty than many so called third world countries. I admit that Quebec isn't asking for English speakers to vacate Canada so French Canadians can take over, but they do need to STFU. The rest of Canada is sick of it kthx. You guys can't even pass your damn Quebec empowerment votes. I don't remember that stuff even months after I studied it, but I recall it would have given Quebec more power in federal and provincial matters, which would have paved the way to separating or whatever the average Quebecois wants. I admit I am far from knowledgeable on the subject, but my opinion is entirely valid.

You know what, I am going to read up on the Quebec issues so I can be more informed. I take it seriously when someone says I am misinformed on a subject that I perceive to be rather straightforward when it comes to understanding the basics (obviously no issue over clashing cultures and societies is even close to straightforward, but you get what I mean).

The guy of writes in bold has a name, you can call me Alex.

As for the racism and discrimination.

« Stupid Quebec ruining perfectly good things, like countries and threads.=P You b**** about cultural desecration when you're not even forced to learn English or adopt British, German, Irish, etc. cultural stuff (the majority of Canada). »

There it is.

And just to so you know. It is an obligation to learn english, we start english in primary and we can stop once arrived in university if we pass an English Exam which is there to put a standard, if we don't pass it, we have to take more enblish course.

Also, during college, we are given the choice to learn spanish, german or chinese. Even more, if once arrived at CEGEP, we are "too" good in english, we HAVE to take another language course, either is spanish, german, chinese.

Once again, like history courses, it is a choice that the student have to take. Of course some of them just pass flush their english and they can't talk correctly, it is their choice, like people who decides to stop school.

Also, something strange, people that talks english doesn't much care about learning french, at least that is what I am seeing, I might be wrong, but I know more "frenchies" that knows how to talk english the english canadian or american that knows how to talk french.

I'm french, I think I can write a good english, of course it ain't the best english writting ever but I think everyone can understand me.

Par contre, si je me mets à parler en français, très peu de gens ici vont pouvoir me comprendre. Oui, c'est un site avec plus d'américain que de Canadien, mais même à travers le Canada qui est un pays francophone ET anglophones, la majorité ne comprenderait pas ce que je dis.

Now SunnO, french canadian wants to be recongnize, that is true. We want to be a culture important within the Canada, however it doesn't seem like it is near possible. The French-Canadian culture is something, the French-Quebequer is something even more within the french-canadian culture. We have our own language, which is now called "franco-québécois", it has been recongnize by linguist, our cultures and values are different from the rest of the Canada, you can't deny it and I ain't talking about "pure" quebequers, the culture of the Quebec is made of people coming from China, Nigeria, Ukraine, Africa, Europe, whatever their religion is or their nationality, that IS our culture. Their ain't one official religion, our culture is the mix of all of them, the respect of each other. I do think however that we have to preserve the French, that it has to be an obligation for everyone to talk and write in french within the Quebec AND within the Canada if you want Canada to be a English/French country.

Now I've write too much, I'll stop here.

This was previously a post about creating a Team Canada for nations, to have fun together all canadians. I suggest that if the discussion continues this way, that this thread moves to the general forum.

I suggest if the conversation continues this way, all your conversation will be deleted and the thread be kept in nations for under the purpose that I made it for. Sound good? Now, instead of rambling on in circles about... about... about...? o.O Let's make this thing come true..

First and foremost, pic, are you joining or what? No, sal isn't, but that isn't what I'm asking.

Now, all who care to represent Canada with us, post here to confirm.

WE have decided to start clan Canada for the new round!

All fellow Canadians welcome!

I have been going around and inviting all those whom I know are Canadian, but I can't possibly know everyone.

So far, the clan looks like this:

Pic
SilverSurfer
Sandyx
SM_Lord-Cyric
Tommy_V
Nataku
Pyromaniac99

It is sad to see that Xsquad and alex suddenly dissapeared as they would have been great additions to the clan...

SA and leaders shall be determined by a clan vote when the clan is officially together. Until then, I will start it off and demote myself to whatever position if need be. But I have an inkling that we already know who the leader should be - Pic.

Other hopefuls that have yet to respond to my invitation:

Cllander
vodka
LagunaCid
Cruzader
Cunning_Killer

sigh... So just because my sister had a false birth thingy and I had to drive her to the hospital the same night as the final rise and new round and thus couldn't make it here to finish my round, finish clan Canada's page/flag, and begin the new one, you now won't join...?

I admit - Bad Timing, but neverthless, it was even worse then you think!

On top of the false pregnancy, I had three important dates on my agenda. All of them being birthdays of close friends/family didn't help... One, we had two of my bros birthdays come up(Which are two days apart) and not to mention fathers day..

So now I'm sitting here, dissapointed (And yet not) that because I had to spend some time with my fam, and some inconveniences occurred, I have to deal with people undermarking my ideas and consistency...

Yes, I know, SORRY, but at the same time screw off because I have a freaking life that is more important then this game, and even that I put off quite frequently as it already is.

Be you an addition or subtraction, the former may still result as the latter.

Clan Canada can and WILL still happen...

Anyone still interested please respond.

The nation world war between Clan Canada, USA and other isnt dead, it just been delay until next round.



Member of clan Canada, your mission this round is to finish your training in nation management and/or analyse the member of the other clan.


Member of the USA and the rest of the world, your mission this round is:

Tremble in fear of the supperior fighting abilities and the biggest lost in nation history that you'll suffer next round from the RED LEAF COUNTRY
