What Makes Canada So Special?

Proud to be Canadian

What makes Canada so special? How do you define the best Canada has to offer? Pretty tough questions, after all Canada is a country as diverse as it is vast. But what are our distinctive characteristics that differentiate Canada from every other nation in the world?

Here is what Main Street Magazine has come with it.
–         vibrant cities
–         breath taking nature
–         personal journeys by land, water and air;
–         active adventure among awe-inspiring natural wonders;
–         award-winning Canadian local cuisine;
–         connecting with other Canadians, we are after all a friendly bunch…well for the most part. LOL
–         the best seasons ever
–         the prettiest people, the best partiers
–         we love each other, Canadians stick together
But wait there’s more…LOL…what do Canadians have to proud of?

13. We have the largest English population that never ever surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone, anywhere. EVER.

14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and it lasted a little over a half hour.

20. A Canadian invented Superman.

21. We have coloured money.

22. Our beer advertisments kick butt

Not to mention we can laugh at ourselves, at others and know how to enjoy life.
HAPPY CANADA DAY
