“Give me a good canoe, a pair of Jibway snowshoes, my beaver, my family and ten thousand square miles of wilderness and I am happy.” – Archie Belaney (Grey Owl)
“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
Canada is one of the most amazing places in the world, there are so many reasons that make this country great but I’m going to talk about the three reasons i think are important. Canada has beautiful landscapes, is one of the most patriotic countries, and is very multicultural. These three things to me, make Canada great!
This amazing country has such an extraordinary landscape. Canada has the most breath taking mountains, so big and rocky. The mountains are great, as many Canadian’s go adventuring, hiking, biking, rock climbing, ski/snowboarding and other winter sports. We have miles of prairie land used for farming. Also, we have huge coniferous and deciduous forests which create fresh air and make for a great place to go camping, hiking or adventuring. Canada has gigantic lakes, the water is so pretty and Canadians love to use them to go fishing, swimming and skating.
Our country is one of the most patriotic countries in the world. We sing our national anthem before every sport or event and we sing it with pride. We like to show we are Canadian when we travel by having a Canadian flag tag on our back packs, as Canadian’s we like to show off our fag as it is such a strong symbol.
Canada is a very multicultural country, we let immigrants into our country no matter what race they are. We encourage immigrants to maintain their culture and bring it into our country for more diversity. Any ethnicity or race are welcome into our country, people from all over the world can come to Canada without being judged by where they are from. Many immigrants come to canada for freedom, safety, and a better life. Canada is one of the top ranked places to live for a better, brighter and greater life.
These three things to me make canada great. I am proud to be a Canadian.
