Oh Canada



A true Canadian through and through Proud to call Canada my home Wouldn't change it for a million bucks And I'm certain I'm not alone Us Canadians will stick together When it comes to promoting our land A wonderful model for others to follow As we lovingly offer our hand A diverse and multicultural society Inviting those from around the world To make this land their new found home As Canadian flags they unfurl Some might consider me overly bias And possibly they could be right But have good cause to promote this land It shines like the stars at night A true Canadian through and through Proud to call Canada my home © Jack Ellison 2013

    Moved from Montreal where I was born to Burlington, Ontario in 1977. It's about 35 miles southwest of Toronto. Recently moved to Newmarket which is northeast suburb of Toronto. Finally getting back on track after our move. Where about do you hail from, Tim? Cheers, Jack

    News flash... Another Royal Heir. Baby boy... Another reason to be proud... PS Dragon says hi! He wants to know if you have a lake handy... Grandpa Troll says he can't come visit without a lake for time outs... LOL... I told him... It's Canada.... Lakes... DAH... LOL (Do you have a lake nearby? Don't tell Dragon I had to ask...)

    Our ties to jolly old England are not as tight as they once were but a Royal birth still grabs our attention. Read it somewhere Canada's got over 2 million lakes... YIKES!
