Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
What is Canadian culture, anyway?

Please, for the love of god, can someone tell me what "Canadian culture" is?
Because I had a chat with my dad a couple weeks ago and he's angry that immigrants are coming in and not integrating into our culture. I asked him what Canadian culture was and he went on a tirade about how we're not telling people in Afghanistan what to do (WTF?)
As an aside, this whole conversation about 'them' (Anyone who isn't 'us' I guess) coming into Canada took me by surprise. My dad never appeared to be a racist before, but I have an easy culprit. A good friend of his is very racist, hates French Canadians, thinks rock 'n' roll is evil and assumes anyone who is young is irresponsible and lazy (I LOVE talking to this guy to hear the next stupid thing he spews).
Now, normally, I'd just leave this, but my best friend recently sent me a chain letter about what Australian parliament is saying (Xenophobic crap for the most part, although I would support some things if it wasn't framed in an 'us v them' mentality) and suggesting that Canada needs to do that to protect our culture. I asked him "Then tell me what Canadian culture is" and he hasn't responded.
So, even though I've lived here all my life, I love my country and believe in it, but what the FUCK is this 'Canadian culture' that's in danger from 'them'?
