HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA / BONNE FÊTE CANADA
On this 148th birthday of Canada I will let others do the writing about my country. No doubt this is in keeping with our reputation of being polite folks.
The CBC has a piece on how Canada is perceived around the word, in which they ask Canadian Studies teachers and researchers to comment on Canada.
I don’t usually take request, but just for today I will: Sorry! You see we also seem to be known for our tendency to apologize. However I explained this in a post a couple of years ago that CNN was kind enough to link to.
