HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA
Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a fur trader....
I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber, or own a dogsled
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really really nice, Eh.
I have a Prime Minister, not a President
I speak "Maritime" English and French,
and I pronounce it "aboot", not about.
I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack -
I believe in peace keeping, not policing,
diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch,
and that last letter of the alphabet -
is prounced "zed", not "zee", but "zed"....
Canada is the second largest landmass,
the first nation of hockey;
and I love my Country
From Sea To Shining Sea.
My name is SaucyKod
.....and I am CANADIAN :)
On July 4, 1776, thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event which eventually led to the formation of the United States - Independence Day. Happy July 4th to my southern neighbours, friends and relatives. May your Independence Day be every bit as bright as my Canada Day.
