It's Canada Day! Happy 152 birthday, Canada....

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sea to Sky Premier Properties (Salt Spring)

Canadian Flag

Canada Day...July 1...and it is on a Monday this year. It's a holiday weekend that signals the beginning of Summer Vacation, right across Canada.

On Salt Spring? Enjoy the Classic Car Show, the live music venues, and be in Ganges Village at dusk for the Fireworks celebration.

Canadians can appear reticent...historically, a mix of British "stiff upper lip", French warm spirit, and U.S. business acumen...but generosity and fair mindedness are long standing Canadian traits.

How lucky we are, to call Canada "home".

Happy Independence Day! I hope Canadians have lots of good reasons to celebrate. When I think of Canada, I think of where I spent my honeymoon, Niagara Falls. It was there I saw something more powerful and surreal than the Great Lakes (I’m originally from Chicago). My thoughts drifted to my first experience going through customs (just a couple months after turning 19) and realized how serious your country was about who they allowed inside and I can still almost hear my husband whisper, this is the place where you have to behave and practice being an adult! It was in Montreal I heard my first words spoken in French. I remember thinking, this is as close as I’ll ever get to Paris! I've never been to BC but it would sure be fun to visit with you! A few days ago, I was at the Farmer’s Market in my local and I picked up Canadian tomatoes. They were absolutely delicious and a flood of good memories came back to me. May your celebrations be fun and meaningful. I am wishing you and all the people of Canada good wishes.
