Oh Canada, my home & not native land.
As an immigrant to Canada, I have an opinion that is far from unique. I am so grateful my parents chose Canada as our home! I adore Italy, it is beautiful & a different way of life, but would I have had the same opportunities that I have had here? The same level of education? The same ability to build the life that I have? Definitely not in signage & possibly not at all.
Our food may not be as incredible & we may not have the history & architecture that goes along with it that Italy does, but I find it only fitting for my life that Italian Heritage Month ends June 30th & Canada Day comes next. I am proud of my home & my native land & today will fly both flags today. Thank you Canada for being a wonderful home that I am proud of not just today, but every day.
Happy Canada Day everyone!
