Mr. Michael Avis
With our nations Sesqui-Centennial Year upon us, it is a fitting time to reflect on the importance of learning about our past. While our heritage may not go back thousands of years as it does with many other cultures and while our country may indeed be very young we do, nonetheless, have a uniquely Canadian heritage. It is a heritage most worthy of recognition, preservation and promotion.
Undoubtedly there will be many celebrations throughout the year, and I urge everyone to support them. For first, second and even third generation Canadians it’s both the perfect and appropriate time to exhibit some national pride, to stand up and wave the flag.
Recently we have been happy to welcome and provide safe haven for many ‘new’ Canadians and our society is enhanced as some of their colourful cultural traditions are woven into the Canadian mosaic. At the same time however it is hoped that this year many of our new 21st century ‘settlers’ will take the opportunity to learn and embrace at least some of the cultural heritage and history of their newly chosen home.
Canada’s 150th Anniversary comes but once . . . let’s all get out and celebrate it!
