Happy Canada Day!!



Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled....
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really really nice.

I have a Prime Minister, not a president.
I speak English and French, not American.
And I pronounce it 'about', not 'a boot'.

I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and it is pronounced 'zed' not 'zee', 'zed' !!!!

Canada is the second largest landmass!
The first nation of hockey!
and the best part of North America

My name is Jen!!
And I am Canadian!!!


Happy Birthday to what I consider to be the absolute best country in the world!

Also, happy HST day to my fellow Ontario residents and British Columbia residents as well

I love that poem, so cute! Happy Canada Day to you too, it really is the best place to live ever. ;)

Happy HST increase to Nova Scotians too, our PST went up 2% effective today, for a grand total of 15% HST. *pukes*
