Just goes to show you when you want something approaching a sense of realism this won't be from GR:AW or UBI. Oh well. More of the "you'll play the game the way we want you to" kind of thought. No creative thinking, no chance to really exercise your mind. IE lets gear to the kids and the....... (nevermind sometimes even I can excerise some amount of self control )
That's not because of the content. Rather of some who choose to discuss it and somewhere along the way leave their maturity, in some cases what little they have, at the door.
The problem with the immigration policy in Canada is not necessarily the immigrants themselves but the policy itself. I have witnessed first hand the lax way the immigration officers deal with "refugees" coming into Canada. In one specific case a "new immigrant" walked into the border crossing office after I had already been in there for 10 minutes. He walked up to the window and said (and this is no joke) "refugee" "Canada". Those were the only two words he said. He was taken to the back and walked out 5 minutes later with an Immigration officer saying "Those papers are all you need to work in Canada welcome to your new home" "Please report to this address on this date for your immigration hearing" and the immigrant walked out. Immigration Canada lately reported that they do not know the where abouts of some 80% of those who claimed refugee status to get into Canada. Of those nearly all failed to appear for their hearings.
I like it so far. Understanding you still have some work to do on it as well. I heard the version with the commentary and have to say I like it without it. I say let the words on the cards be your commentary. Let the politican's have their soundbites in the media.
I think out of all the countries that I have looked into Austrailia seems to be about the only ones willing to do it right in the first place. Not only do you have this but consider what they do with those claiming "refugee status". Those people get to spend a bit of time in not so nice surroundings, last time I heard guarded by the army because they were acting a fool in their previous detention area, while their status is actually confirmed. I know for a fact that Canada for one could learn a lesson or two from the Aussie's reguarding how they handle new immigrants. Especially so-called refugees. But I'll stop now before I get on my soap box.
How about the song "Brothers" from Pearl Harbour. If you needed it to be longer you could then use "Tennesse" ahead of it. The two, with Tennesse being first go perfectly together as far as I'm concerned. If you need them let me know.
The Edmund Burke quote is good I agree. Something a little more original might be better though. What about,
"When the world called they answered. Now they call upon us to remember."
"Their duty was to protect the innocent and the oppressed. Ours is to remember."
"They responded when the wolf was at our door."
May seem kind of corny. Maybe quite a bit to some. But hopefully it they might serve to get some more creative juices flowing.
