Always my favourite annual post.
Today Canada turns 140 years old. She doesn't look a day over 139. *sigh* That's not even funny.
This is the day that we all celebrate the great things and the greatness of Canada, a day where flags are everywhere and pride runs high. Plus, fireworks! At 140, Canada's democracy is one of the longest-standing in the world, something which we can all be proud of. Our country is strong, vibrant, innovative, compassionate, diverse, and confident as we move forward in facing the challenges that lay before us. I can think of no country on Earth where I would rather live, and no place that offers as much opportunity to its citizens. For that, I salute the idea, the nation, and the state of Canada.
