Ahhhh the truth north strong and free. Hockey, maple syrup, the beaver, poutine and the Loonie. Yes, I’m talking about Canada. For those of us who get to call this beautiful country home we know, as we celebrate our countries 150th birthday, the many things that make our country so great. The gift of freedom, fresh air and democracy, the list goes on. It’s easy to feel fiercely patriotic being a Canadian citizen. This year as we celebrate a major milestone together as a country, I invite you to paint your face red & white, watch the fireworks and pour yourself a truly Canadian cocktail, eh?
