Happy Canada Day! Joyeux Fête du Canada!

July 1st is Canada Day here in the second largest country around and this year Canada celebrates it’s 150th birthday. In Vancouver the city is calling it Canada 150+ to recognize both the country’s official day as Canada and that the First Nations people have been here for much longer than the rest of us.  I’d like to wish everyone a great day! For me, I am always grateful that my parents choose this wonderful country to start their new life well before I was even a thought.  All of us in Canada make up this country whether your ancestors have been here for centuries or if you’ve arrived here only recently.  Let’s grow as a nation and as humans – to be an example of that to the world. Kindness matters. Celebrate diversity.  Love to all.

P.S. – Sunday Special will not be posted this weekend and will resume the following week.
