I'm not one for sloppy patriotism. In that regard I am a true Canadian... quiet, even reserved in expressing affection for my country. There are times I identify more with the country I was born in (the country in which I was born, if that last phrase makes you shiver) or the country of my blood, but when it comes right down to it, I. AM. CANADIAN, and darned proud of it.
So, on this July First, I wish you all a heart-swelling, tall-standing, fireworks-popping day of national pride. It's Canada Day, eh!
