In May of 2011 The Great Canadian Online Magazine was started to answer the question, What has made Canada so great? Along the way I’ve asked this question to lots of Canadians. Some people have told me its our health care, others say its the glorious landscapes. But every person I ask seems to have another equally compelling reason for the greatness.
The Great Canadian Online Magazine currently has nine writers that are all excited to write about our great country, Canada. They want to write about our cuisine, our businesses, and our people. After speaking with several Canadians and reading all the articles on this site, I have come up with this conclusion: What makes Canada great is simply the people. Tommy Douglas helped shape Canada’s health care system, and from Wayne Gretzky to David Suzuki this country is packed full of great people.
So, tonight I am not only celebrating the birth of our great country, but, I’m celebrating all of the people. A country with endless opportunity, that helps shape the minds and actions of Canadians. Happy birthday Canada and thank you for all you have done for us.
