Canada is the 2nd largest country (land mass) in the world.

Canada has one of the largest, if not the largest National park (Banff, Alberta) in the world.

Canada’s people are diverse, bringing delicious foods and beautiful customs from all over the world for me to discover and enjoy.

Canada’s population is only about 34 million and about 90% of its people live within 100 miles of the US border.

You may have to travel great distances to reach the next town.

The Maritime provinces have some of the friendliest people in the world.

Cirque de Soleil got its start on the streets of Vieux (Old) Montreal.

We all know that Molson sells beer. But did you know that when they first incorporated they also ran a bank?

The bank didn’t last but the beer and the legend endure.

Canada has Maple Syrup, Poutine, Tourtiere, and sells things like lacquered moose turds and chocolates that look like the turds of various animals as souvenirs.

Yeah that’s weird but people buy it and that’s weirder!

If you’re Canadian, what do you like about Canada?

If you’re not Canadian, watch the following video…

…because I know that you want to be Canadian, eh?

Happy Canada Day!!

Canada, the first country to be created by legislation, came into being on July  1, 1867, through the British North America Act (now the Constitution  Act). The process has come to be known as “Confederation.”
