 "Canada is a country so square that even the female impersonators are women."

Richard Benner

 

 "Canada is a place of infinite promise. We like the people, and if one ever had to emigrate, this would be the destination, not the U.S.A. The hills, lakes and forests make it a place of peace and repose of the mind, such as one never finds in the U.S.A."

John Maynard Keynes

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

 Jose Narosky

Whether we live together in confidence and cohesion; with more faith and pride in ourselves and less self-doubt and hesitation; strong in the conviction that the destiny of Canada is to unite, not divide; sharing in cooperation, not in separation or in conflict; respecting our past and welcoming our future.

 Adrienne Clarkson


We only need to look at what we are really doing in the world and at home and we'll know what it is to be Canadian.
