Ancestral Notes

Being Canadian

I was born in Canada, live in Canada and I imagine I will most likely die in Canada, and I wouldn't want it any other way. But being born here doesn't make me any more Canadian than anyone else that has chosen Canada as their future home.
Being Canadian, one of the youngest countries in the world, is the pride that can't be put into words, pride in our ancestors achievements and pride in our nation's acceptance of people from different cultural backgrounds since the vast majority of the population of this country was created by immigrants.
This is what seperates Canada from other couintries, our multiculturalism. Where the United States is a "melting pot" where individuals from different cultures are supposed to assimilate and become "American", we in Canada take pride in the celebration of people's different cultures, heritage and customs.
