Greetings, 892.

Canada turned 141 today. According to tonight’s 11 o’clock CTV news, July 1st is the most popular day of the year for people to become Canadian citizens. Today’s number was 892. Impressive. Most people quoted “freedom” as the number one reason to “turn Canadian”.

Here are my Top Ten Reasons to become a Canadian, or to appreciate already being one!
  1. Ketchup potato chips.
  2. Fewer boundaries to memorize.
  3. Even if you are in the wrong, the other person will always apologize.
  4. Wide, open spaces right outside your door.
  5. Anne Murray, Bryan Adams and/or The Guess Who. Your choice.
  6. Metric.
  7. Zed.
  8. The letter ‘u’ (ie. colour, humour, neighbour)
  9. Hockey.
  10. It’s true... we really are the nicest people on the planet.
Happy Canada Day!
