Canada is 146 years old.
We are the second largest land mass in the world
We have 10 provinces and 3 territories.
Prince Edward Island,
Yukon Territory, Nunvaut Territory & Northwest Territories.
Our beautiful country from the far west side - Yukon Territory.
to the furthest east side.
Now go all the way up to the northern lands of Nunvaut.
and all the way down to our southern most tip.
We are a beautiful country of farm land and cities
We are fishermen and finaciers, we always have been.
We are inventors.
We are actors, singers, song writers, poets and more......
We celebrate culture & diversity.
Yes, we have beavers, beer, moose, mounties and maple syrup.
We have a Queen that lives in England & great neighbours to the south.
We have pretty money & we no longer use pennies.
The loonie & the toonie have replaced our $1 & $2 dollar bills.
Yes, we call them loonies & toonies - funny eh?
We are friendly, we are world peacekeepers,
we are understanding and accepting.
We need to show our patriotism more, we need to brag more,
wave our flag more, shout more and stand our ground more.
I could go on and on about this fantastic country I live in, the beauty, the people and the freedom - I'm lucky and I am a proud Canadian!
Happy Birthday Canada!!!!! xoxo
Leaving you with a bit of iconic Canadian bands....
