While creating this Proud2bCanadian Blog, I wanted to take into account the feelings of all citizens and to learn from each other what it means to be Canadian.
For me, Canada is a land of opportunity to explore new challenges and the freedom to make personal decisions along life’s adventurous journey, experiencing highs and even road bumps along the way. Being Canadian to me means having the opportunity to freely express myself and my opinions and to know that my country is a safe and friendly place to live.
Without outwardly showing it except at sporting events and the 1st of July parade, Canadians are generally patriotic people who are proud to call Canada home. Here is an opportunity to show your patriotism to the rest of Canada. Put your feelings into words (about 500) and tell us what being a Canadian means to you and your family. Are you a new Canadian or has your family been Canadian citizens for several generations. What makes you most proud to be a Canadian and how has this country enriched your life.
You can tell us anything you like. Periodically, we will choose from all the responses a few we think best expresses what it means to be Canadian and post them in a special section of the Proud2bCanadian Blog for all to read. At the end of every month, we will select four submissions to receive a complementary annual membership in the Canadian Unity Travel Club each valued at $200. So gather your thoughts and send them along to us - we welcome each and every one of them.
To participate in the contest, please follow this link. www.canadianunitytravelclub.ca
Look forward to hearing from you.
