World Hockey Junior Hockey Championships

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I just wanted to say congratulations to team Canada in thier 5-1 win at the world juniors. That makes 5 in a row!

One stat that I like is as follows:

The game was watched in whole or in part by 9.3 million Canadians, or close to 30 per cent of the country’s population.

Here’s to you, Canada!

Here’s to your hockey hair,
Your long underwear,
And multi-coloured money.

Here’s to sayin’ please,
Your ducks and geese,
And always bein’ funny.

Here’s to open spaces,
Away from rat races,
And a beer that quenches the thirst!

Here’s to bein’ proud,
And sayin’ it loud!
Even when you don’t come first.

Here’s to your pretty girls,
Your black-coloured squirrels,
And a flag that stands so free!

Here’s to different faces,
From different places,
Who love this country like me.

But most of all,
Here’s to standin’ tall,
And sayin’ it like a true Acadian:

I love this land,
I love this country,


The Canadian Flag

What can you say about the Greatest country in the world? A lot! So here it goes…

Canada’s National Anthem

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons 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

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


I know this place is where I am.
No place is better than where I am.
No matter where I go I am.
Proud to be Canadian.

I am, You know I am.
I am Canadian.

I love this country where I am.
This land is where I make my stand.
Y’a pas un cocur Qui est (no other heart is) truer than
The one we call Canadian.

I am, You know I am.
I am Canadian.
