#MyCanada is two grade 7 girls leaving school, one wearing a hijab, the other with a crucifix around her neck – arm in arm, BFF.
#MyCanada are people who stand in the face of extremism (of whatever sort) and say, “No.”
#MyCanada is the calm voice of Peter Mansbridge, the decisive action of Kevin Vickers and the rest of our police and security forces, the desire to heal of unnamed Good Samaritans, the willingness to serve – even unto death – of Cpl. Cirillo, Warrant Officer Vincent, and the women and men who are their comrades.
#MyCanada will not let fear become the value that overtakes those of “peace, order and good government.”
#MyCanada will NEVER let fear become the value that leads us by the nose.
Oh, Canada, our home and native land,
true patriot love, in all our [lives] command,
with glowing hearts we see thee rise,
the true north, strong and free.
From far and wide, O Canada,
we stand on guard for thee.
God, keep our land
glorious and free,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
we stand on guard
