Canadians may not be overtly boisterous in our patriotism but we are confident of our nation's greatness.
For 148 years we have provided new hope to millions. Together, we have created a nation that is a beacon to the world. ?
Canada is a courageous warrior and a compassionate neighbour. Through our kindness and generosity we have always risen to the occasion. In our quick response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti, bringing freedom to millions of Afghans, and now battling the evil that seeks to enslave women and children in the Middle East.
We may not be our allies' most powerful friend but we are their most certain.
This Canada Day, we pay homage to our many veterans who have courageously defended our nation and give thanks to the brave men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who continue to do so today.
Here in Westman, we have so much to be thankful for. Our farms feed the world. Our natural resources fuel a growing economy.
Together we continue to build a society where honest, hard-working Canadians can live, work, and play safely in their communities.
This Canada Day let's all do what we can to continue building a stronger Canada.
Happy Canada Day!
