All in all, you’re not a bad country to live in. Sure, you’re every bit as problematic as other countries, and you’ve got a ways to go in getting better, but let’s hope that the next 150 years will take a large step in that direction. That’s what today should be about, celebrating 150 years of you and working to always be better than we’ve been and are.
O Canada, our home and native land! When I’m away, I remember you with utmost fondness, when I’m here, I appreciate your beauty, your quirkiness, your comfort. There’s no place like home, there’s no place like you. For all your faults, for all your charms, you are home, and I wouldn’t live anywhere else in the world.
Happy 150th, Canada. Let’s make the next 150 years something to really celebrate about.
