one of the special things reflected in overseas Chinese is the "motherland complex".

if you already obtain Canadian passport, which is the most solid proof of canadian citizenship, but you still identify you are a Chinses citizen, then how can you blame other Canadians not treat you as 'zi ji ren' , in terms of
career, promotion, politics, etc... you refuse to join the society at first place--when you take the oath (lolyal to Canada and the Queen), while you keep considering you belong to China and keep thinking Canadian passport is just a symbolic document , you in fact betray your oath. like or not, this is true.

I am talking about citizenship, not origin of nationality. of course we should be proud of our culture (or race, i hate this word) root, but different nations have different definitions on citizenship. to be frank China's citizenship definition is quite dumb---not only based on your birthplace, but also on your boodline, if you have a baby born in, say, Tororonto, then go Chinese Consul for Chinese citizenship, see what will happen.

since you already selected to reside in Canada permenantly, and already obtain its passport, I can't be convinced that you are still a zhongGuoRen.

I often wonder, why the children who are a natural USA citizen (born in USA) are called (by their parents or friends with Chinese background) ABC, he/she is actually a Chinese American, but is not an American Chinese.

You attribute this to the fact that Chinese are always Chinese, no matter where he is born, I attribute this to the fact that you volunteerily refuse to join or merge into the society which you will really not leave
