happy Canada day
Yay, it's Canada Day. I live in the nation's capital and it's always a carnival like environment around here, with the streets closed off, buskers, musicians, and there are about 350,000 expected to take in the show on Parliament Hill. It's complete insanity in the neighbourhood. Canadians are known for being somewhat reserved, and it's great to watch everyone let loose. I'm heading out with a friend in a bit. What's everyone else up to?
Aside from that, this is the best country in the world, with universal health care, a decade of legalized same sex marriages, access to abortion services, a multicultural society, and a relatively stable economy.
