Happy Canada Day!

Daily Prompt: Pleasure

Hey everyone, I’m so happy today! It’s July the 1st, the birthday of my beautiful nation. Happy Birthday Canada- I’m so proud to call you home!

Here are all the reasons why I love Canada:

  1. Democracy
    We have the freedom to vote and to speak what we think. Power to the people!

  2. Healthcare
    Compared to many other countries, Canadians are really fortunate to have access to free, high quality health care.

  3. Bilingualism
    All Canadians students have access to learning French on top of English. Très cool!

  4. The many cultures!
    You could have come from any corner of this universe and you would fit right in with the rest of the community. 🙂

  5. Education
    All children can access good education, it doesn’t matter where you came from, where you live, or how much money you have. You can learn.

  6. Equality
    Canada regards all genders/ races/religions with equality- everyone is a part of the community.

  7. Environment
    Canadian landscapes are absolutely breath-taking, ranging from forests to lakes to mountains. There are also a huge variety of animals throughout the nation (which allows me to go fishing :D).

  8. Comfort
    Canadians are blessed with a very good standard of living compared to many other countries. Clean water, clean food, and clean air.

  9. The Food
    We have our own culture as well and that includes food! Start your day with a plate of fluffy pancakes drizzled with fresh maple syrup. Try some poutine (hot fries with cheese and gravy) or a beaver tail (deep-fried dough topped with whipped cream, chocolate hazelnut, cinnamon sugar, or whatever you desire). YUM!
