What does it mean to be Canadian this year?
There are many things about this country that I’m proud of. This hardly feels like a time for celebration, though, as deep penetrating sonar unearths our nations darkest secrets.
Today, on Canada Day, I choose to focus on the beauty and diversity of our country. I celebrate tolerance, respect and understanding.
I celebrate compassion and education.
I celebrate the richness of the culture of our First Nations people.
I celebrate a day and time when we view one another as equals, regardless of race, gender and ability.
I envision a country where all this is possible.
