Canadian Eh?



I am Canadian.
A proud Canadian.

You want to know why I love my country so much?

Because we have poutine.

And are home to the best hockey players in the world.

We have Niagara Falls.

Canadians are funny.

And friendly.

And good looking, if I do say so myself.

We made Jim Carrey.

And Shania Twain.

And Neil Young.

And Pamela Anderson.

Well, almost all of Pamela Anderson.

We have great tasting beer.

Even though I don't drink it anymore.


We have mountains.

And the prairies.

Maritimes.

And the Territories.

Our music is awesome.

Tragically Hip.

Sarah McLachlan.

Bryan Adams.

Rush.

Michael Buble.

Diana Krall.

Even Celine Dion.

Even though she looks weird when she pounds her chest.

We have the CN Tower.

We are home to Anne of Green Gables.

Man, I loved Anne of Green Gables.

I wanted to be Anne of Green Gables.

Our health care system.

You should be jealous of it.

Because there is nothing better.

Need I say more.

Oh yeah.

And my family.

My friends.

My heritage.

My history.

It is a wonderful place to live.

You should come.

I bet you wouldn't want to leave.


July 1 is the birthday of my country.

Happy belated Birthday Canada.

Momma loves you.
