July 1 is just around the corner, and on that date in 1867, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada were united into a single country.
Canada Day is traditionally celebrated with fireworks, concerts, cookouts, and sporting events.
How do you plan to celebrate this great nation?
I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader,
and I don't live in an igloo, or eat blubber, or own a dogsled,
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really, really nice.
I have a Prime Minister, not a President.
I speak English and French, NOT American.
and I pronounce it 'ABOUT', NOT 'A BOOT'.
I can proudly sew my nation's flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, NOT policing,
diversity, NOT assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and it is pronounced 'ZED' NOT 'ZEE', 'ZED'!!!
Canada is the second largest land mass,
the first nation of hockey,
and the best part of North America!
MY NAME IS JOE!!
AND I AM CANADIAN!!!!!!!!
