Canada Celebrates Its 137th Birthday

MAP-OF-CANADA


Across this great land of ours, Canadians from coast to coast to coast celebrate a remarkable country on its 137th birthday.

As the election dust settles, this is a day to put aside our political differences, to come together in commemoration of a vibrant nation of almost 32 million people, a Canada that is held up around the world as a model of tolerance, civility and social-mindedness.

As the world becomes a smaller place, as globalization and the communications revolution sometimes blur the distinctions between countries and cultures, today is a day to acknowledge Canada’s ‘differentness’ — from our social safety net and welcoming immigration policies, to our cherished Charter of Rights and Freedoms and our acknowledged politeness — these are just a few of the traits that define us as Canadians.

In these troubled times, who we are as Canadians is cause for celebration.

Happy Canada Day !!!
