I fondly remember the days when CBC signed off each morning with this video.
Despite what our current crop of politicians - and I exempt no party - have done to diminish my country I am proud to be a Canadian. Proud of the rights and freedoms that I enjoy, proud of the work done abroad by our military, proud of the rich and varied heritage that makes up my country. Though today I will celebrating in another land I will none the less be celebrating My Home and My Native Land.
And here's one of my favorite version of our national anthem - unfortunately only in English.
Happy Canada Day et bonne fête to all my friends back home and throughout the world.
