"As we enter our centennial year we are still a young nation, very much in the formative stages. Our national condition is still flexible enough that we can make almost anything we wish of our nation. No other country is in a better position than Canada to go ahead with the evolution of a national purpose devoted to all that is good and noble and excellent in the human spirit."-Lester B. Pearson
"Canada has never been a melting-pot; more like a tossed salad."-Arnold Edinborough
"Canada is probably the most free country in the world where a man still has room to breathe, to spread out, to move forward, to move out, an open country with an open frontier. Canada has created harmony and cooperation among ethnic groups, and it must take this experience to the world because there is yet to be such an example of harmony and cooperation among ethnic groups."-Valentyn Moroz
CANADIAN TAKE ON NATIONALISM (lol, so different from Khaleeji countries):
"Canada is an interesting place, the rest of the world thinks so, even if Canadians don't."-Terence M. Green
"Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity."-Herbert Marshall McLuhan
YOU KNOW YOU ARE CANADIAN IF THESE SAYINGS ABOUT AMERICA MAKE YOU PROUD TO BE A CANADIAN:
"I don't even know what street Canada is on."-Al Capone
"Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, while Canadians are malevolently well informed about the United States. "
-J. Bartlet Brebner
On being an expat Canadian: "I read and learned and fretted more about Canada after I left than I ever did while I was home. I absorbed anything I could on topics that ranged from folklore to history to political manifestos... I ranted and raved and seethed about things beyond my control. In short I acted like a Canadian."-Will Ferguson
"If you don't believe your country should come before yourself, you can better serve your country by livin' someplace else.Stompin'"- Tom Connors"For some reason a glaze passes over people's faces when you say "Canada". Maybe we should invade South Dakota or something."- Sandra Gotlieb [Wife of Canadian ambassador to U.S.]
"The reigning Miss Canada has been arrested for punching out another woman in a bar fight . . . Quite frankly, I think it's refreshing to finally find one beauty pageant winner who is against world peace."-Jay Leno
