Canada Day Quotes

 

 "Canada is a country so square that even the female impersonators are women."

Richard Benner

 

 "Canada is a place of infinite promise. We like the people, and if one ever had to emigrate, this would be the destination, not the U.S.A. The hills, lakes and forests make it a place of peace and repose of the mind, such as one never finds in the U.S.A."

John Maynard Keynes

Canada Day Quotes

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

 Jose Narosky

I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.

 Pierre Trudeau


Our hopes are high. Our faith in the people is great. Our courage is strong. And our dreams for this beautiful country will never die.

 Lester Pearson

Canada Day Quotes

Whether we live together in confidence and cohesion; with more faith and pride in ourselves and less self-doubt and hesitation; strong in the conviction that the destiny of Canada is to unite, not divide; sharing in cooperation, not in separation or in conflict; respecting our past and welcoming our future.

 Adrienne Clarkson


We only need to look at what we are really doing in the world and at home and we'll know what it is to be Canadian.
