I am not a lumberjack or a fur trader. I don't live in an igloo, eat bluber or own a dogsled. I don't know Jimmy, Suzie, or Sally from Canada, although I'm certain they're very nice. I have a Prime Minister, not a President, I speak English and French, not American. And I pronounce it 'about' not 'a-boot'. i can proudly sew my country's flag on my jackpack. i believe in peacekeeping, not policing; diversity, not assimilation. And that the beaver is a proud and noble animal. A toque is a hat; a chesterfield is a couch. And it's pronounced ZED, ok? not ZEE, ZED! Canada is the second-largest landmass, the first nation of hockey and the best part of North America. My name is Joe and I am Canadian.
