This month’s theme was decided by others after I gave my speech at our Canada Day celebration which included 4 quotes. I am very pleased to accommodate the requests of printing the quotes of three world leaders & one very famous Canadian on their thoughts of Canada:
“In a world darkened by ethnic conflicts that tear nations apart, Canada stands as a model of how people of different cultures can live and work together in peace, prosperity, and mutual respect.” – Bill Clinton
“Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.” – Pierre Trudeau
“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” – John Diefenbaker (From the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960.)
Stomp’ in Tom Connors sings, “The good old hockey game is the best game you can name, and the best game you can name is the good old hockey game.”
Our Canada Day celebration and BBQ was a party of flag waving, sea of red and white, delicious food, first class entertainment and top notch customer service. My heartfelt gratitude goes to all of the residents and family members that attended and for your many compliments.
I am a truly proud Canadian and honoured to be employed for a company that always has the residents’ best interest at heart.
