Happy Canada Day!
No horse related content today, but Happy Canada Day! For those of you who don't know, today is the 150th anniversary of Canada's Confederation. We have a lot of ways we can improve as a country (improving our treatment of First Nations people, doing more to fight climate change and environmental degradation as we develop our natural resources, etc.). While I will keep working to make this country better, for the most part I feel pretty darn proud and lucky to be Canadian. We have a beautiful land from sea to sea to sea. In general we are an inclusive country that accepts and celebrates differences in culture, religion, race, gender, sexual preferences and opinions. I think that's especially important in today's divisive world. We also benefit from a degree of prosperity, peace, and stability that so many people in the world don't have access to. Today will be spent celebrating on our backyard deck with friends. Those friends and fellow Canadians include folks who came here from Hong Kong, Ireland, Congo, and England, I think that's pretty cool.
