Happy Canada Day

One-hundred forty one years ago today our little experiment in North America started. And somehow, 141 years later, our bumble-bee land, that everyone thinks should have fallen apart, and which, if it followed the path of every other country in the world, with their inability to have different races and languages and religions live together in peace, would have--our improbably country stretches across a continent, is one of the world's oldest and most stable democracy, and is a beacon of justice and kindness.

So, Happy Canada Day! And God save the Queen.
