Canada, home to ten provinces, three territories and a population of 37,279,811 in 2019. We are blessed to live in a country that has such a beautiful cultural mosaic. An incredible part of being a Canadian is being able to learn and experience so many different cultures from all over the world. Even though there is so much diversity in Canada there is one common characteristic we all share. Canadians are kind. I am so honored to call myself a Canadian. Living in Canada I am a witness to how welcoming, compassionate, and kind Canadians are. Kindness isn’t something that is forced upon Canadian citizens, it just instilled into our everyday life. From coast to coast you find people partaking in random acts of kindness, from something as small as holding the door to paying it forward for someone’s Timmies. This kindness isn’t only recognized on a national level but on an international level. Whenever Canadians are traveling internationally, we make sure to always have a Canadain flag on our person. The Canadian flag is a representation of what all Canadians believe in and lives by; equality, respect of others’ cultures, safety and peace are just a few examples of what we stand for as a Nation.   When people see this flag it is an unspoken symbol for everything Canada stands for. I spent my Canada Day long weekend with the Airdrie Pro Rodeo. I would like to thank the City of Airdrie for being so welcoming and kind. The rodeo had contestants from Canada, Mexico, the United States, and Australia. Even though most of these people are only visiting, it was a display of how Canada brings so many people together. I am so blessed to live where I do. I am so excited to bring our Canadian Kindness to an international stage.
