Today is the Canada’s birthday, and for some reason it seems more festive than prior years. Perhaps it was the group singing of Oh Canada last night around a fire with friends, or because of the music I can hear on the streets outside my window from 12 stories up. Or maybe it is because my sister is getting married this Canada Day weekend, and I am in a festive mood all around. Either way, I am not complaining. Canada is a fantastic nation, and an amazing place to live. I’m extremely proud to be Canadian, and would like to wish Canada a very happy 144th birthday!
