My boy and I spent a sunny afternoon celebrating our fabulous country. Wandering around the downtown core of a safe Canadian capital city with a polite well-behaved crowd of fellow revellers, I was reminded once again of how fortunate I am that my parents chose to immigrate here. As a woman and a mother, I enjoy opportunities in Canada that women in many other parts of the world lack.
Wishing everyone a happy Canada Day, with special thoughts going out to the many Canadians who are far from home on this Canada Day. May you all be safe and healthy, and not too homesick!
