MACINTYRE: Canada at 153? It’s complicated

2 0 0


Birthdays are a time to reflect on what we’ve accomplished, what we lost and what we want for our next year.

They are also a time to remember where we came from, our struggles, our victories and to embrace our challenges with compassion and gratitude.

On Canada Day, we often puff out our collective chest with pride that we — Canada — are providing a light for the rest of the world to follow.

And on so many fronts, we embody that lofty goal.

We are kind, generous, open, diverse, friendly and live in a free and stunningly beautiful country. I love this country, its people and our functioning governance (at times).

We can be proud as a nation to have handled (and continue to manage) an unexpected, devastating global pandemic, COVID-19.

Yes, problems........
