The entire world knows our flag with the maple leaf. We still have a reputation of kindness, honesty and integrity.
We’ve done a lot of things wrong, Canada, but we’ve done a lot of things right.
I hope, Canada, that you can go easy on us. We are a work in progress. Like anyone, we make mistakes.
But it doesn’t pale our deep affection for you and our allegiance to you.
You are stunning and just to be held by you is a gift.
Thank you Canada for yesterday, today and tomorrow. My we learn your tolerance and acceptance.
We love you. Happy birthday.
