Older than some, younger than others, my country has its birthday on July 1st.  It’s an odd country in some ways and certainly has its share of issues and problems, but is probably the best place in the world to live.  Yes, I know.  A lot of people feel that way about their own country, and that’s great.  But a lot of people aren’t writing my blog.  I can happily wish friends south of the border a happy 4th of July knowing that most of them love their country above all others.  But Canada is my country, and I’d like to know how it became a Canadian trait to be quiet about our own nationalism.  No one else is, so far as I can tell, so why should we be?

Oh, and don’t believe what they say.  Canada has a long and interesting history filled with political unrest, periodic rebellions, the odd assassination attempt, and plenty of other interesting and exciting things.

Happy 142nd Birthday, Canada!
