the Stars and Stripes flys from my porch, I tear up when I hear the Star Spangled Banner and I love my American grandkids. I AM CANADIAN.
Another Albertan here...someone noticed this morning that Bush was wearing a small USA emblem in his lapel..Martin was not wearing a similar Canadian emblem. A tiny thing in the scheme of world news..but even so it shows who is the most passionate about his country.
Even though I live in the Washington, DC (and have since 1974), I grew up in Nebraska, where I still have family.
I have been to Canada several times -- but I have never been to Alberta.
If the people of Alberta are as hospitable, kind, and generous as the people of my home state (and I sense that they are), then I must make a trip to Alberta a priority.
Most likely, a trip to Alberta for me would involve a trip during the Spring or Summer.
