This will be short and simple.
I AM Canadian!
So what? It means I come from Canada. Do I love my country? Absolutely! Am I proud of my country? You betcha! If I were from the USA I bet I
would be a proud, flag waving American. If I were from Russia I would probably be a proud Russian. This is the way we are wired to be. Not all of

Canadian owned horse wins Kentucky Derby. So what? The owner was born in Canada. Big deal.

Canada." Well, that was pointless.
I am always seeing a Canadian Connection reported in Canadian media. It is getting old.
I love my country as I am sure most people do.
(I am going to start adding articles where there is a Canadian Connection which is the focus of the story)
That is my rant.
