Happy Birthday Canada!

Happy Birthday Canada!

July 1, 2014

To all Canadians I would like to take this opportunity to extend best wishes now and always. We are gifted to live in this extraordinary land, a diverse cultural blend of peoples who call this beloved country home. From the splendour of the Maritimes and east coast Atlantic Canada to our Central Canadian provinces beyond, to the seemingly infinite wheatfields of the prairie provinces through Albertan lands where the foothills meet the mountainous expanse of British Columbia on through to the west coast to the wondrous Pacific seas…

We love our country, steeped rich in a history we are proud to share. We fly our national flag with pride and honour, boast the diversity of our culture and embrace the principles of freedom and a way of life perhaps second to none around the globe. We cherish our ancestry, our soldiers, our heroes in a homeland strong and free…Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

My friends, pause on July 1st to close your eyes for good long moments to give thanks for all that we possess, for our freedoms, our ancestors, our settlers of long ago, our parents before us and our children in succession who will live their lives in the honour of all that we so strongly believe, by and for our beloved country.

We are truly a land of promise, the true north strong and free…
