Let us not be French, lets us not be English, but most importantly let us be Canadian!
John A. Macdonald
In a world darkened by ethnic conflicts that tear nations apart, Canada stands as a model of how people of different cultures can live together in peace, prosperity, and mutual repect.
I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.
Our hopes are high. Our faith in a people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.
It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw, not because she is Canada but she's something sublime that you were born into, some great rugged power that you are part of.
There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and gererous-hearted people.
Sir Winston Churchill
I read and learned and freeted more about Canada after I left than I ever did while I was home. I absorbed anything I could on the topics that ranged from Folklore to history to political manifestos..I ranted and seethed about things beyond my control. In short I acted like a Canadian.
In any world menu, Canada must be considered the vichyssoise of nations; it's cold, half-French, and difficult to stir.
Canadian pride may not rest on our sleeves, but it resides deeply in our hearts.
