Happy Canada Day! It may not really be a day off this year (Torre doesn’t know what a stat holiday is), but I am very grateful to have this country as my home. I like our colourful money and the fact we put u’s in more words than Americans. I love our maternity leave and free health care, decent schools and relative lack of corruption. I enjoy that there is French on my cereal boxes. It may not be perfect, but Canada has certainly been a wonderful place to grow up and now to be raising a family in.
