"Canada is the homeland of equality, justice and tolerance" - Prime Minister Kim Campbell "I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind." - Prime Minister John Diefenbaker "Canada was built around a very simple premise. A promise that you can work hard and succeed and build a future for yourselves and your kids, and that future for your kids would be better than the one you had." - Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Happy 150th to one of the world's greatest countries. A country that prides itself on universal healthcare, multiculturalism, and equal rights for all. A country that's obsessed with weather updates, opening doors for others, and pouring a little too much maple syrup over pancakes. A country who opens their arms to the oppressed, fights for freedom, and stands up for what is right. A place that means home. So from Victoria to St. John's and from Alert to Toronto, happy Canada Day.
