Happy Canada Day

cyclingstamp (289x175)

I would just like to wish Canadians, and any Canadian friendly people out there, a Happy Canada Day.  We’re 151 years young.  We have a lot to be proud of (and a few things to atone for).  Our year begins with challenges, but we shall be strong.

I could have gone with the flag motif, but I decided to choose something simple this time around.  I also wanted to choose something that speaks to my passions.

I should note that as well as celebrating the founding of our nation, I am also feeling pretty good about the signing of John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Now, with this two pronged attack, there will probably be more room for Auston Matthews to work his magic.

Bring home the cup.

About Anthony

I am: equal parts rebel, romantic and shockingly average Joe. a writer trapped inside of an ESL teacher's body. an introverted attention seeker. a teacher who hopes one day to be called "Captain, my Captain." an intellectual who can do some very dumb things. a person whose Japan experience, despite being so long ago, still exerts a strong influence upon him. a lover of books, music, beer, hockey and Pizza.

    In spite of what my country’s leader may want you think, I am a big fan of your country, Anthony. Happy Canada Day!

      Thank you. Don’t worry, the words of Donald J Trump don’t carry a lot of weight here. Our only confusion is how anyone can believe what he says when you can place two opposites quotes (often said in the same week, if not the same day) and not everyone screams.
      Of course, he gave his friends millions of dollars in tax breaks forever, and people seem happy with a couple thousand for a two or three years.

        I don’t understand it either, Anthony. And there’s no sense in trying to understand it, either, because it’s not rational. I keep hoping that something will finally snap people out of their hypnotic spells but and starting to lose hope.

    I like Canada. I think in my lifetime, I have watched it grow up. I actually recall John Diefenbacher and Lester Pearson and of course Pierre Trudeau. And I recall the old flag. I think this is maybe the problem I had. It seemed a strange…and very cold….no mans land. Not quite USA. Not quite Britain. But I think the story of the last 51 years…new flag of course…has been Canada establishing a very different identity from both and Canada is in the top ten nations….with Scandanavia, Benelux and Ireland (hooray!) and Australia and New Zealand as the good nations.
    Oddly Ireland issued stamps to commemorate the centenary of Canada in 1967 but did not recognise the 150th anniversary.
    Anyway happy belated birthday to Canada….what would I do without Rookie Blue, Murdoch Mysteries and the lovely Frankie Drake.
