Being Canadian

flag

What does it mean to be Canadian?  It means a lot of different things.

It does NOT mean that…..

  • You live in an igloo or teepee
  • You have maple syrup with ever meal
  • You take a dog sled to school
  • You like poutine
  • You say “eh” at the end of every sentence
  • You call your neighbor a hoser if he pisses you off
  • You are a push over
  • You are boring
  • You know how to call a moose to dinner
  • You know Bob in Toronto
  • You speak French

It DOES mean that….

  • You are polite.  Always. And if you aren’t you say you are sorry
  • You love your country fiercely but not fanatically
  • You feel safe
  • You always have a red shirt in your closet
  • You love hockey….even if you don’t like hockey
  • You know what “hurry hard” means
  • You can travel proudly anywhere in the world with a red maple leaf in your backpack
  • You don’t always order a double double but you could if you wanted to
  • You know a little French
  • You have a Hudson Bay blanket somewhere in your house
  • You hang out on your chesterfield drinking a Kokanee
  • You are understanding and appreciative of where you live

The Best Thing in Life is July 1st – Canada Day
