Celebrating Canada

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. I believe that Canada is a great country and a great place to live and that Canadians are so darn fortunate. I just love those liberal, ice hockey loving, tree-huggers.

Tomorrow, July 1st, is Canada Day. I used to enjoy going to watch the multi-cultural concerts all over Ottawa when I was there. These concerts showcase the Canadian mosaic of cultures which celebrate the differences of all cultures and the richness it adds to the Canadian social tapestry. Finally, I’d be there on Parliament Hill to watch the fireworks. Some of the most enjoyable experiences of my life and I find it hard not to feel fortunate to have been there.

To a great nation and its peoples, I say “Happy Canada Day!” I was going to get you guys a present but I am a bit swamped by work at the moment. For the same reason, I did not have time to be creative with this post which is why I had to purloined three videos from youtube to make my point.

Video 1 just makes you proud to be Canadian. Video 2 explains the history of Canada, kind of. Sort of. And Video 3 is a very Canadian self-depreciating way of celebrating their country (plus Malaysia is also mentioned). Happy All Things Canadian.
