To all my friends in Canada celebrating Thanksgiving today I hope you have a wonderful day of togetherness, feasting, and reflection. As you gather think about the tough days of the past and work toward a better future. Truth and reconciliation can be found around a table while sharing a meal. I know I am thankful for Canada. Have safe and peaceful day with your family, friends and others.
September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.The day honours the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities. Public commemoration of the tragic and painful history and ongoing impacts of residential schools is a vital component of the reconciliation process.
I’m not Canadian but this time of truth and reconciliation are universal and every nation have their own issues with the treatment of indigenous people and the sadness of how they were oppressed and removed from their homes and land.
A federal election will take place on September 20, 2021, to elect members of the House of Commons to the 44th Canadian Parliament after Governor General Mary Simon dissolved Parliament on August 15, 2021 at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s request.
To my Canadian friends please vote. The future of Canada depends on your participation in the vote.
This vintage ad for Canadian Pacific is a reminder of colder days that are hopefully ahead. Spending time in a Winter wonderland in Old Quebec would be pretty nice right about now.
This goes out to everywhere it’s hot. Especially the Pacific northwest and Canadian southwest where you good people aren’t used to temperatures like you are experiencing. Stay cool by any means necessary and be safe.
To all my friends in the great province of Ontario, Canada I hope you are getting on as best you can during this latest lockdown. I hope you can crush COVID soon and borders can reopen for your crazy neighbors to the south to come visit soon. You have lousy leadership from your premiere/governor among others that isn’t helping you any. Hang in there and you have my unwavering support. Peace to you all.
Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. There are also recognitions of Black History Month in Canada, United Kingdom and The Netherlands. You cannot tell the story of a nation without Black stories being heard. I am glad to learn more and to be a part of this.
I am not Canadian, but in my dreams I am. I support the talk about mental health going on today in Canada with the Bell Let’s Talk initiative. Everyone struggles. Everyone needs someone to talk to. Keep a watch out for one another. The world is a tough place these days. Peace to everyone going through stuff right now.
