Happy Canada's Day. A place I AM proud to call my home. A country I've discovered from East to West and back again. I have climbed a few mountains, swam and fished in some lakes, rivers and oceans. Hiked, canoed, hitchhiked across the country. I've slept under the stars, beside a fire with the sound of a loon in the distance. I've walked with the company of a few wild animals. All of it reminding me of its vastness, and incredible beauty. I have stepped away from it to travel, only gaining a deeper perspective and admiration for it. Returning home to know how blessed I am for the freedoms it provides. I have lived in 3 provinces. Growing up in Southern Ontario, moving out to the West of Alberta and returning East to Live in Montreal, Quebec. Meeting people from all walks of life, and enjoying a diversity of Cultures along the way. I've experienced the hot humid summer to the Frigid cold Winters. All of this, is what formed me into who i am today and why I am happy to be called Canadian.
