Hello world! Today I am going to go on a rant about why Canada is great!

I am proud to be Canadian and to live in such a diverse community. Canadians are known for their friendliness and I like to continue that trend. We are a very welcoming country that is open to many things. For example, Canada legalized  same-sex marriage 10 years ago while other countries were still unsure of their decision. The official date of when same-sex marriage was legalized is July 20, 2005, becoming the fourth country to do so.

Another thing about Canada is that our Health Care is FREE! I mean, who doesn’t love anything free? We are blessed to have free Health Care all over Canada while other countries do not have the privilege. Every Canadian citizen has the privilege of protective care, medical treatments, as well as access to hospitals, dental surgery and more additional services. We are very determined to keep all our Canadian citizens healthy and in good condition.

Canada also has freedom to offer! We are a very free living country who has the opportunity to live our life the way we choose to. I am very passionate about teaching others to live by who they are and not to let anyone influence the way they live their life, so freedom is an extreme element that I am proud to say that Canada has!

We are also surrounded by the beauty of nature, from the rocky mountains to the open prairies. There are plenty of beautiful sights to see here in Canada such as the Niagara Falls, Banff, Lake Louise, the CN Tower and much more! Not only are there wonderful sights to see, but also amusement parks to enjoy yourself. We have Canada’s Wonderland, La Ronde, Galaxyland and many many more! If you are ever in need of a destination place for vacation, anywhere in Canada would be your greatest bet, I guarantee you!

Canada has grown to be a very talented community! We take pride in our sports aspect, as well as our musical aspect. Basketball, Lacrosse and Hockey were creatively invented here in our very own country. It’s amazing to see how far our country has come being involved in sports and representing Canada the right way. We have athletes who travel the world doing what they love and making sure the world knows how much talent we have. Aside from all the sports business, we are lucky enough to have many many musical artists born and raised here in Canada. From all different genres of music we have Drake, Justin Bieber, Celine Dion, Michael Bublé and a whole lot more who also proudly represent our wonderful country.

Last but not the least.. FOOD! We have an enormous variety of foods that Canada is well known for. From that salty savory taste to the sweet goodies you can’t get enough of! Without a doubt, every single human being has a huge love for food because I know I do. Maple syrup, bacon, and poutines are the famous foods that Canada is known for and they have all proudly become a part of our culture.

Did you know that there are certain treats that Canada has, but America doesn’t?

Here is a list of a few treats you won’t find anywhere else other than Canada:

  • Smarties
  • Coffee Crisp
  • Aero
  • Caramilk
  • Wunderbar
  • Maltesars
  • Lays dill pickle chips
  • Ketchup chips
  • Munchies snack mix

I am blessed and proud to call myself a Canadian. This blog still does not do my country justice, there is an endless list of things about Canada that can not all be listed. Our population continues to grow, thanks to all the Canadians that show the world what Canada is really all about.

 Your proud Canadian,
