Today is part of my very quiet four day weekend. But the poignancy of Canada Day has not been lost on me. So much to appreciate (eg. the outdoors, the diversity, the tolerance), so much more work to be done (eg. the environment, honouring our First Nations and Inuit peoples, advancing rights for the trans* community).
So in brief, let's raise a Caesar and celebrate who we are, remember our histories and continue to do the hard work it takes to make our nation even better for all.
