EyeWitness Travel Guide to Canada
So these are my reasons for loving Canada. When my sister and I come back into Canada, we breath a sigh of relief, and say, "It's good to be back." We might complain about our country sometimes, and wish that some things were different, but I can't think of any place in the world that I would rather live. We might not have the history of the Europeans, or the status of the Americans, or the technology of the South Pacific, but what we do have is lots of space, lots of class, and lots of things that make us unique. We have imported major amount of talent to Hollywood, and many of the world's best bands and singers are from here. I am proud to be a Canadian, and love my country. I don't have to be an American to want to cry when I hear the National Anthem. I get goosebumps when I see that Canadian film on Remembrance Day, and I love hearing sly references to Canada on American T.V. programs. I have given my reasons to love Canada. What are yours?
