But before you get too excited, time for Andrew Cohen's annual finger-wagging. The pompous arse has taken a different approach this year. Where usually he picks a random nation and explains why it's so much better than Canada, this year he sneers at your red mittens, timbits, and hockey.
Nonetheless, he's right about some things (though I'll never understand the anger the name "Canada Day" generates in some people). But Canada Day is a time to celebrate. To celebrate the fact that you either won the cosmic lottery and were born here, or were fortunate enough to make it here from somewhere else.
So have a wonderful day, drink some wonderful Canadian beer (Hoptical Illusion from Flying Monkey's in Barrie is my choice), and celebrate this wonderful place.
