As an expat who dropped by this country in 1988, I want to say what a privilege it is to be able to live and work here, politics and other things aside this is an amazing country to live and bring up a family. Now a citizen of this country I have witnessed moments of both sporting and individual human endeavours that is so uplifting and at times bring a tear to your eye, especially when the National Anthem is played.
All my family are back in England and I am forever asked to return 'home'; with the state of affairs over in Europe at the moment the answer is a firm 'No'....Thank You Canada for what you have given me...Happy Birthday.
This video / song from 2010 was awe inspiring
And for those who don't know about this wonderful country
