You know, that mysterious place hidden somewhere up north that you hear about (aboot?) in fairy tales that is filled with Eskimos that drink syrup
inside their igloos, men in checkered shirts that fish for beaver and ride on moose, weird people that like to put ketchup on their macaroni and their
potato chips, where they put gravy with cheese on their fries and drink milk from plastic bags, they like to add extra letters to words and sometimes
switch the letters e and r, for what reason who knows, where beer is the national drink and hockey is their national religion, and apparently the
people are very polite and will smile if you make eye contact. Yeah, that place.. Well let me tell you the place does exist, the people are just as
amazing - or weird - as they sound (some) and all the crazy myths you hear are true (mostly). Oh Canada.. eh?
But my oh my, how you have grown Canada.. it's become a love-hate fest with you..
I love our diversity, I love how we are the melting pot of the world. I love we can experience the mystical indigenous lands of the west, the small
and humble fishing towns of the east, the cold Eskimo villages of the north, and all the mega metropolis cities in between. I hate that we have a
country within the country, I think they call themselves Quebec or something, they even have their own language. I also hate the extreme social
progression we are taking. Please slow down.
I love that you can take a road trip across the continent and experience everything mother nature has to offer. From the Rocky mountains in the west,
to all the prairies and islands of the east, all the natural parks and untouched lands of the north and even this place called America down south. We
even have a secret place called Nunavut somewhere. I hate that we have 'The Volcano of Mass Destruction' in the middle of everything and I hate that
we have Alaska imprisoned somewhere up north.
I love that we get to experience all of the seasons, from a rainy and wet spring, to a blazing hot and humid summer, to a beautiful and bitter autumn,
to an unbearable and bone chilling winter. I hate that everytime it's summer, everyone wishes it was winter. I hate everytime it's winter, everyone
wishes it was summer. Consistency Canada, consistency.
I love that we have produced some of the greatest and most successful musical talent of this generation. From Drake, to Justin Bieber, to The Weeknd,
but I hate that they don't get the respect they deserve. Must be a Canadian thing and the fact that you can't stop hearing them anytime you turn on
I love that we have Nickelback and that they trigger the rest of the world. I hate that we have Nickelback and that they trigger the rest of the
world. C'mon, they aren't that bad, stop lying to yourselves!
I love the pride we Canadians have. I don't think I've ever met a Canadian that doesn't love you. Even though they laugh at us from the outside, I
am proud to call you home. I persevered through the toughest of times with you and celebrated the best moments of my life with you, thank you for
making me who I am today. I was born and raised with you and will likely rest my head for the final time with you..
Oh Canada, Happy 150th birthday you bastard.
