PROUD to be Canadian

The opening title...stands for itself.


I am proud for my country!

I am 'proud' to be a part of the social-medical system, that we have in existance.

I am proud to be a part of the 'peace-keeping' system that is in effect.

I am proud that a member of my country 'risked life and limb' to help our cousins down south, get out of a country that was posing harm to them.(1970's)

I'm proud that we produced the 'CanadARM' for space travel.

I'm PROUD for many things in my country.

We CANADIANS, are at the 49th parallel (border) from the AMERICANS.

Laura Secord, Canadian woman, warned the British(Canadian) troops, about the American invasion into CANADA.

The Battle of 'Stoney Creek' Hamilton Ontario, was the deciding factor.

A little over 3,500 British (soon to be Canadian troops), STOPPED the AMERICAN troops of close to 10, 000.

I'm proud that these 10,000 personnel didn't infiltrate us.

To be free....I wouldn't change it for the world.

I speak 'the way I do', I have an accent, (God love a's part of my heritage).

I pay 'heavy taxes'. I'd rather that my monies go for the good of all in healthcare. God Bless Tommy Douglas! (look up his name)

I am not a Canadian. I am an American but....

I live in Canada and have done so since 1979. I love the United States but I also love my adopted country, Canada. I have live half of my life in the "Great White North" . My wife and kids are Canadian and I am firmly rooted in this great country.

Canada is a country that "cares" about it's people. It has a wonderful health care system in spite of everything Americans might believe. Sure, there are drawbacks and problems but, nevertheless, I can receive excellent medical care whether I have a serious illness or even a common cold without worrying about going bankrupt.

Canada is a country with a parliamentary system which means I don't have to endure a government that is out of touch with the needs and will of the people. We don't have to wait four years for an election....if the people lose confidence in their government, a new government can be elected.

Canada is a country of proud people with an independent spirit and individual mindsets. It's a country with clean, safe cosmopolitan cities like Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver yet it is also a country with vast, untouched wilderness.

Canada is a bountiful country with resources that have yet to be tapped: timber, oil, gas and minerals. And Canada is a huge, young country filled with resourceful, well educated people who "give a damn" about each other and the rest of the world.

Yes, I do love America and what it stands for. The "American Dream" is truly a wonderful one but it is one that seems to be fading. I hope and pray that the "dream" will once again be shared by all of her people. In the meantime, I am happy to live in a country as wonderful as Canada.
