Happy Birthday!!

Today is July 1st and that means it’s Canada’s birthday. Folks across the country will be BBQ-ing, going to cottages, having picnics and family get together’s, attending community events that may feature music, art and various kids’ activities and invariably for many people the night will end with a spectacular fireworks display.

Canada is a super place to live and I wouldn’t trade living here for anywhere else in the world. From an artists perspective Canada is a veritable gold mine of inspiration with it's magnificent natural spaces, oodles of wildlife and ever changing seasons. If you don't believe that the appreciation for this great country extends from one ocean to another here's a list of just 100 reasons us Canucks love our country:
