“I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, and free to choose those who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind.” 


~  John Diefenbaker (from the Canadian Bill of Rights, July 1, 1960.)

Happy Canada Day!
