I am as proud of being Canadian as anyone, but that’s who we are! We don’t need to run up the flag at every turn or chest-thump the fact.
Everyone around the world knows us well; when the going gets tough, or people need us, we will be there as we always have been. We are a compassionate, hard-working, open-minded, strong-willed, forward thinking nation.
Sure, let’s run up our flags on this, and any, Canadian birthday. But to be more like America? Hardly.
