Today is an opportunity to celebrate our country, display our pride in being Canadian, and appreciate Canadian values like inclusiveness, diversity, and respect for differences. At age 149, Canada is a young nation ready to embrace change and meet the challenges ahead.
There is much economic and political uncertainty in the world at the moment, but we can take heart knowing that the Canadian vision is one that seeks to unify rather than divide people. On July 1st, families in Oakville and other Canadian communities show that they share their vision.
See you next year when Canada celebrates its sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of confederation!
