Duke Redbird, Master Degree in Poltical Science, lineage from Tecumseh, Mentor at the College of Art Ontario, World Class Poet, Artist and Ojibway Elder clarified symbols and emeblems even more.
Take the Maple Leaf and the Maple Leaf For Ever, Beavers, one symbol an emblem chews glorious Maple trees down another symbol and emblem. We cannot have that... we have enough problems with the emblem of distinct nation of Quebec contantly chewing away at the country, mainly the Anglo who were victorious.
The Americans feel proud when they see the bold Eagle. How would they feel with the buck-tooth rodent daming the flow of the Mississippi River? Old Man River would become a lake, several lakes and ponds, stagnating. Something what socialists and liberals are known for, stagnate individualism and build Satitism. Of course, Old Man River is slightly large for the beaver, however, you get the point of freedom and free flowing thoughts and entrepreneurial spirits.
