“Oh Canada,

Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong set free.

From far and wide, Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee…

Have you ever stopped and wondered why Canada is so amazing? Could it be our fresh water lakes? Or our beautiful patches of green? Or could it be our poutine!? There isn’t just one reason why Canada is amazing, there are plenty!

Here are some reasons I think Canada is awesome!

10. Poutine.

Fries. Cheese. Gravy. Who doesn’t love a good poutine!? Now, who came up with this brilliant idea? In 1957 poutine was invented when a trucker asked Fernand Lanchance to add cheese to his fries. “Poutine” is Quebec slang for “a mess.” Well this “mess” is defiantly a good one!

9. Maple Syrup.

Who doesn’t love sweet, rich, tasty maple syrup? I know I do! I personally love it served on warm blueberry pancakes… Oh now I’m hungry! You can have many things topped with maple syrup. For some of you that don’t know, the best is when you put it on snow and it becomes toffee! Now that’s a delicious treat.

8. Hockey.

He shoots, he scores! Canada wins the Stanley Cup! Us Canadians, we take hockey pretty serious. When it comes to hockey… Don’t mess with us!

7. Canada’s Great Lakes.

Canada is greatly known for its lakes. There is Lake Superior, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. These lakes form the largest group of freshwater lakes on the Earth.

6. We accept everyone.

We accept everyone. It doesn’t matter what skin colour you are, what religion you are, or what gender you are. Everyone is one big family, we don’t judge or hate.

5. Wildlife.

Canada has so many beautiful features, and creatures. Canada is home to spectacular wildlife, such as Canadian geese, the beaver and moose. These are some animals Canada is known for. Hey, what did the beaver say to the tree? It’s been nice growing you!

4. Canada is a rich country.

Canada is a rich country with a huge amount of natural resources. Canada may not be rich with money, but we are rich in actual wealth, food, clothes, health, shelter, etc.

3. Good education.

Canada is one of the worlds top education performers. Each province and territory has a laws, policies and procedures that govern the education institutions. Not many kids around the world have an opportunity to be in school.  So when you are telling your best friend about how much you hate school, just remember there is a little boy or girl out there in the world that would love to be in school.

2. Good health care.

Health care in Canada is delivered though a health care system that is free. Canada’s government is focused on the health of others.

1. Multiculturalism.

In 1971 Canada was the first country in the world to adopt multiculturalism. By doing so, Canada accepted all Canadian citizen regardless of their race, their religion or of their language.

Canada is a really incredible country.

… God keep our land glorious and free. Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee. Oh Canada we stand on guard for thee.”

 

Lots of love xx
