One hundred and forty-nine years ago, this country was founded through a confederation between New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and what was then called Upper and Lower Canada (Ontario and Quebec.) Since then, Canada has grown “From Sea to Sea” and in addition to our aboriginal peoples and founding peoples; the French and English, includes people descended from every corner of the world.
We have a lot to be proud of – a lot to be grateful for. This country – our country, is strong and free.
On July 1st, we should consider how fortunate we are to live in this country.
Have a safe and fun long weekend. Happy Canada Day!
