The English made wind up devices


Hi there I'm asking for help protesting Canadian government to let us make wind up mechanisms.
Our first people made wind up mechanisms. We made wind up clocks and more and now we are no longer allowed to make wind up mechanisms. We need the right to make wind up mechanisms in Canada to protect English history.
The first advancement of the English beyond fire and houses was wind up mechanisms. That is what brought us our industries. First there was small devices we did tests with then big industry. We didn't start with a car first we used small gears to test it. We didn't start with a paper mill. First we tested on small devices and then made industries. We didn't start with a crane. First we made a small example and tested it then we made the larger model you have now. We didn't start with a motor. First we made a small model then advanced it to what we use today.
People might be compelled to believe the wright brothers got on a pedal bike and flapped wings in the air and that made aviation but I know for a fact that someone put a series of gears on a small device to make a motor and propellor and made a small model airplane at some point and it involved the gearing of a small wind up mechanism.
We need a wind up mechanisms school for the English to be allowed to continue with our history. Without it we are going backwards. I hope you can bring this to the attention of Canada. A large part of Canadian heritage comes from the toys of the wind up mechanism industry.
It is vital for our history. Please write the ministry of Canadian heritage and advocate to let the English have a wind mechanism industry..

I guess.
I’m English and would never have though wind up toys being unique or special to the English.

Maybe he’s a wind up merchant.
