Today is Canada Day and Canadians from coast to coast are celebrating the birth of the land of the maple leaf 143 years ago. We even have Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II visiting this week to celebrate with the common folk and taking in a visit to the race track. 🙂
Canada is a wonderful country with a diverse population and rich history of immigrants who helped to build this great country of ours. Toronto, its largest city, has perhaps the most diverse population in the world. Despite the recent problems during the G8 and G20 Summits we are mostly law abiding, and citizens aren’t allowed to bear arms (only the criminals and cops do) 🙂
Canada is one of the most tolerant countries and welcomes you whether you are gay or straight, Christian, Muslim, Jewish or any other religion, non believer, or ethnicity. So on its 143rd birthday I would like to congratulate Canada and say how proud I am to be Canadian.
Instead of raising a glass of champagne I’ll toast Canada’s birthday in typical Canadian fashion – with Canadian beer. 🙂
