Happy Birthday Canada! This is the one day that happens every year where Canadians become very patriotic. I love it. We have a wonderful nation where we can live, play, work and grow together.
In celebration of Canada Day, I recommend you take this Canada Quiz from the National Post. The best Canada test I found among the papers I read/subscribe to (Which are many, I have a digital subscription to The Province, Edmonton Journal, StarPhoenix and the National Post all under one subscription, thanks Canada.com. But I also keep tabs on the Winnipeg Free Press, Toronto Star, Globe & Mail, New York Times, Deseret Morning News, and the Battleford's News Optimist among many other small market papers.... just to name a few). So when I say it is the best Canada Test I found, I mean it.
Also, to celebrate Canada Day, I have to share my favourite moment of someone singing O! Canada. It was during the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. Chandra Crawford had just won a gold medal in her event, and when it came time to raise the flags, she BELTED out the National Anthem. It is beautiful. I admire her for her work and passion, so much so that I tried to get my daughters name to have Chandra in it. But alas, it didn't happen. But watch this:
Happy Canada Day!
