This Video Makes Me Cry Every Time. 

First,  The biggest happy dance in 16 years. We have a new government in British Columbia! It’s a coalition between New Democratic Party and Green. Whoooot! I was so happy when I heard the news I had tears in my eyes. This is a huge deal for British Columbians. 

It’s Canada’s 150th birthday.  If you have read my blog for any length of time you know I love my home. From our Universal Health Care that excludes no one to our diversity and open boarders. 

CANADA IS
We have love for our neighbour

Of whatever creed or colour

We have love for our cities

And our valleys and our plains

We have a voice that is calling

Telling all the world we’re willing

To welcome them to this great land

For that’s what Canada is.

We have faith in our future

We’re ready for tomorrow

We have faith in our children

For our future’s in their hands

We have a voice that is calling

Telling us to keep on hoping

For time will make this wild land great

And that’s what Canada is.

We have peace in our valleys

We’re happy and contented

We have peace in our cities

And our boundaries have no chains

We have a voice that is calling

Telling all free men we’re willing

To show them how to live in peace

For that’s what Canada is.
Canada is the Rocky Mountains

Canada is Prince Edward Island

Canada is a country made for love

Canada is La Belle Provence

Canada is the Yukon Mine

Canada is a country full of love.

  1. Congratulations. Unfortunately, your country does not like to let in people with disabilities but your governance in BC should be progressive with Greens and social democrats at the helm.

      • I hit enter too soon. Yes, Canada does exclude people with serious health issues. If we opened our boarders we would likely be swamped with anyone without medical coming for healthcare. I’m not saying it’s right. It’s not. It’s just such a precarious situation already. We have many politicians that would love to see the system gone and make it for profit. We are not a wealthy nation and most Canadians know that we are in danger of losing our healthcare if it becomes unaffordable. I am really wondering what will happen in the next 20 years with the baby boomers. I’m not sure it’s sustainable.

  2. Well, that’s going to be an interesting provincial govt.! Happy Canada Day, Birdie! Will you have a chance to take in something fun? -Jenn

  3. Sounds like a positive change. Happy Canada Day. I’ve been watching “Road to Avonlea” lately, it’s my new guilty pleasure. I found it by accident when I was on leave from work and watching TV in the morning on day, something I very rarely do as life is always calling me to be up and out and about. I now catch up on the replay button when I get home from work. I always loved Anne of Green Gables.

  4. Happy Canada Day! David and I have been thinking of moving to BC. If we ever do it will be the happiest day for the both of us.
