Canada Day...Is Canada Aging Gracefully, or Trying to Hang on to Her Youth?

Our great and majestic country turned 139 today, if she was born in 1867. While I do spend a fair bit of time criticizing our government, and though I do detest the fact that we have a monarchy, I do love living in this country and I'm optimistic that I'll live here until I die.

For me, the things that make this country great are as follows: We've got a relatively low population density. There is tremendous natural beauty everywhere you look. Despite a late tax-freedom day, we are a relatively free citizenry. Finally, Canada is home to the greatest game in the world!
