A Birthday Wish for Canada

What is Canada?

Some might say that Canada is a vast tract of land, spanning city and sea, river and rock, forest and field. 

But we would also describe Canada as a diverse collection of people, having varied ancestries and cultures, yet all sharing the common dream and promise of democracy and its various institutions, applying fairly and equally to all.

May we never lose sight of the dream.

And may we never take it for granted.

Happy Birthday Canada!
