Reflections on Canada at 150

By Jim Miles - Global Research

July 1st, 2017, was Canada’s sesquicentennial, its one hundred fiftieth birthday. A youngster in comparison to many, not an elder statesman to any.

Our great country, Canada, is exemplary of an embodiment of the spirit of humanitarianism, acceptance, cooperation, freedom, and peaceful existence of its citizen in a multicultural, pluralistic, meritocratic, civil society.

Canada seeks to embrace and preserve diversity and a mosaic of traditions, cultures and different perspectives of its people and also strives to protect the environment.

It is more important what we give back to Canada, rather than what we get from Canada. What matters most is where we go from here, not where we come from. 

Happy 150th Birthday, Canada! May you prosper in this century and beyond!
