November 9th – Canada

I have been Canadian for all sixty-six of my years. Canada is not everything that I was taught to believe. Canada is not what it once was. Regardless, I am beyond fortunate to be Canadian and to live in this safe and bountiful and beautiful country. Today, I chose to share some words of wisdom from and about Canada.

“When I am in Canada, I feel this is what the world should be like.”

– Jane Fonda

“Canadian pride may not rest on our sleeves, but it resides deeply in our hearts.”

– Steve Miller

“We have it all. We have great diversity of people, we have a wonderful land, and we have great possibilities. So all those things combined, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be.”

– Bob Rae

“On a positive note, I haven’t seen a mosquito for months.”

– Every Canadian from November to May πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

“If you don’t think that your country should come before yourself, you can best serve your country by livin’ somewhere else.”

– Stompin Tom Connors (Canadian singer/song writer)

“You can’t buy happiness but you can live in Canada and that’s pretty much the same thing.”

– Anonymous

That is it for today.

Take care and have a great rest of your day!πŸ’ž

  1. Wonderful quotes, Annmarie. I believe that the US is not what it once was. Rotten Liberals and special interest groups among other things are slowly tearing the States apart. God bless Canada! πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦β€οΈ

  2. Liked this post Anne Marie. One of my favorite quotes comes from the movie, Field of Dreams. β€œIs this heaven?” β€œNo, it’s Iowa!” I live in Michigan but my heart will always belong to Iowa…

  3. What is it about that first β€œhome” base that stays with us forever? I named my blog Storyteller from a one-stoplight town after my hometown. I got stopped after getting my license at 16 at that stoplight. Now my little town has 4! Blasphemy!

  4. Big city now! I don’t know. My son Dan (who is generally happy as all get out) was one year old when we left the city where he was born. He cried for a month. The day after he graduated, he headed back ‘home’. He is still there, now with his own family. My son Mark lives in Regina – a couple of blocks away from the house he grew up in. Wierd.


  5. I like the quote from Louis L’Amour’s character, Tell Sackett in the book Lonely on the Mountain. They’ve driven a herd of cattle to a Canadian mining town,
    “We’d better give the boys a chance to blow off some steam.” “They’d better blow it careful,” I said. “Some of those Canadians are mighty rough. Nice folks, but they can handle themselves.”

  6. It was awesome. Sheridan on the Falls. It looks further from the Horseshoe Falls than a couple of other hotels, but it actually had a better overall view in my opinion. The closer hotels were always in such a fog, I don’t know how they had any view.
