Our Home and Native Land


It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw, not because she is Canada but because she’s
something sublime that you were born into, some great rugged power that you are a part of.

 - Emily Carr

I’m convinced that god sent me to live in Canada because of how wonderful and beautiful this country is, knowing that I would love it as it loves me. I must have been very good in a past lifetime because I really do believe that Canada is the best place in the world to live, dream, play and work.  What must have been an accident of birth seems like an incredible blessing to me.

As Canada Day approaches my thoughts meander to what I love most about Canada… the Rocky Mountains, lakes, rivers, sunsets, beaches, oceans, wildlife, national parks, dinosaur bones, Niagara Falls, maple trees, maple syrup, the RCMP, the Canadian Armed Forces, our flag, bannock, Nanaimo bars, salmon, the Ogopogo, the Sasquatch, Chinooks, the Parliament Buildings, Winnie the Pooh, hockey and of course, the Stanley Cup!

What do you love about Canada?
