canada 150 bday

Canada is an amazing country and everyone who lives here is very fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Canada is so diverse, free and, welcoming that it’s so hard to really pick out the flaws of Canada… ok well maybe our winters and taxes can be extreme, but other than that what’s not to love.
