Happy Birthday, Canada!


“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, and free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.”

John Diefenbaker
From the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960

I've only been to Canada once in 2007 when I went to Niagara Falls and it was so clean...being the traveler that I am it is definitely on my list...Vancouver, Whistler...Nova Scotia, etc. etc.

Also, I loved your recent posts... your walking path, and about how our energy/thoughts can make changes!

Beautiful photo!

May Mr. Diefenbaker's ideals continue to guide Canada's corporate heart. Our Canadian dream is coming to an end, may yours continue.
