Happy Canada Day Weekend..

Friday, June 28, 2013

We are beginning a Holiday weekend, we are celebrating Canada's Birthday on Monday July 1st... Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian Spark Friend's!

Hope you enjoy the following poem for Canada Day...

Together We are Canada! emoticon

Written by Leanne Guenther

My name is British Columbia
The jewel of the West Coast.
Forestry and fishing are
The things that I do most.

Hi, I am Alberta
A wild west kind of place
With cows and oil and mountains
And lots of open space.

I am Manitoba
And I’m Saskatchewan
We’re the golden prairies
Where fields of wheat grow in the sun

Hi, I am Ontario
The home of government
To me each year the leaders
Of our democracy are sent.

Bonjour, I am Quebec
Here French is my language too
When I want to ask “how are you?”
I say, “comment allez vous?”

Newfoundland, New Brunswick
And Nova Scotia -- those are we,
We are Atlantic Provinces
The three musketeers of the sea.

I’m Prince Edward Island
And I know I may be small
But without me all the rest of you
Would have no potatoes at all.

The Yukon, Nunavut and North West
Territories are up north.
Through ice and cold and polar bears
Few brave souls venture forth.

Together we are Canada
One nation strong and free
With sharing, friends and happiness
Forever we will be!

    Loved the poem, never saw it before. Would be great for teaching kids geography in school. My g.d. was just in BC and didn't know how close she was to be able to see Pacific whales..... and her sis didn't know there were campgrounds in northern Manitoba and figured she had to go across the line to camp.... there are 22 and 19 y.o's, not kids.....

Happy Canada Day to you too, and I hope you weather is better than mine.

So, it would be great if the weatherman didn't say, "So the rain has started and will be continuing for the long weekend!"

And cold to boot.... only 50F (what's that about 8C or something.... my thermometer on the window doesn't show Canadian!!)
