Response to What Makes You Most Proud To Be Canadian?:
I like the fact that I’m from Atlantic Canada. I’m proud of the kindness, friendliness and consideration towards others here that I’ve not always seen in other provinces. Maybe I’m not looking hard enough. I’ve met some wonderful people from all over Canada, most of whom I call friends. But I have to say - Atlantic Canadians are hearty, working-class people who are PROUD to be working-class. We are PROUD of the pirates, rum-runners, sleveens and scallywags that come from our part of the country. Hell, half of them are our ancestors. It makes for great stories to pass on.
