I am born and raised in Calgary, Alberta and have lived here all my life. Although I don't have another country to compare this one to, I know I love being a Canadian.

I love my country because:

Everyone is so friendly.

Everyone pitches in to help when needed.

Diversity is accepted and welcomed.

Multiculturalism is the norm.

We celebrate everything with everyone.

I love Calgary because:

Rocky Mountain views are a short drive away.

Chinooks. Enough said.

New and exciting skyline.

Calgary Stampede.

Peter's Drive In for their large fries. Just the sheer size of it makes me smile.

I am a proud Canadian. Happy Canada Day!!
