To the Editor:
The holiday season is in full swing, so what do we have in Canada that we should be grateful for?
Freedom: it should be at the top of the list, something others wish for but we experience each day in our young nation.
Diversity: from all over the world, people of different cultures come to Canada to become citizens, and yet are not required to relinquish their identity.
Hope: our young society will continue to build a nation based on the values taught to them by Indigenous, European, African and Latin American newcomers.
We inhabit a relatively new nation and the future is so bright, that as we celebrate the festive season, let us also bear in mind what a privilege we enjoy as Canadians in the 21st century.
