Being a true Canadian and proud of the country that we have become it is important for me to reflect on our growth as a nation. And to hope that we continue to foster positive growth and change well into the future.
We have stood on the forefront of being a melting pot of different ethnic backgrounds for well over a hundred years. My own ancestors came to this country in the late 19th century. They suffered harsh conditions and weathered them all.
My wish for Canada is that we continue to grow in influence throughout the world. That our influence is based on peace, leading innovation for feeding the world and being good environmental stewards, great science and technology that assists in improving lives and cleaning up our planet of toxic waste and debris, and lastly to see all people as having value.
Happy 150th year Canada!
