    Canada Day 2020

    Canada is a country that is working to understand its mistakes and trying to address them. At least that is the Canada I know.

    by Maureen McCabe

    As we look back over the past few months – at the heroic efforts of our front-line workers, the hundreds of businesses who stepped up, and the thousands of volunteers who put up their hand to help – we can all feel pride.

    I have never been prouder to be a Canadian than at this very moment in Ontario’s history.

    And Canada Day gives us a chance to celebrate the extraordinary actions of these heroic people. Our neighbours. Our friends. Our fellow Canadians.

    The challenges we have faced together over the past few months have only made us stronger.

    We have been put to the test as a province and as Canadians. And we were able to rise to the occasion.

    There are still great challenges ahead of us, beyond COVID-19. I love Canada because we are a work in progress and I think we all know it.

    Canada is a country that is working to understand its mistakes and trying to address them. At least that is the Canada I know.

    I live in the greatest country in the world. (Yep, I know as Canadians we don’t say things like this – but we should.)

    And as we all celebrate this great country, I’d just like to remind everyone to stay safe and continue to follow the public health advice.

    Do you know the history of July 1st in Canada?

    • 1879 to 1980 Dominion Day
    • 1981 onward Canada Day

    Wishing everyone a very happy and safe Canada day!
