We asked our Skilled Doers what they love about Canada, and they had a lot to share!
Handy Dandy Repair Services Inc.
"Being Canadian means being a considerate person. For example, when Canadians are at a 4- way stop, nobody moves because we always want the other person to go before ourselves. Instead of having the thought “me first”, we generally think “no, you first."
"I am proud to be a Canadian because of an experience I had while traveling Europe. I was visiting France and was out of money and was hitchhiking to find a place to stay for the night. A man stopped and picked me up and drove me to a place that I could stay. The man then proceeded to pay for my room and gave me some money to buy a meal. I was extremely grateful and asked why he was so generous to a person he had just met. He said “I saw the Canadian Flag on your backpack! I am from Belgium and Canadians are highly regarded in my country because of their efforts in liberating our country! If any Canadian is in need I will always help”. I am thankful for our history and the reputation that our ancestors have established for us around the globe! Happy Canada Day!"

"I'm happy and proud to be Canadian! I have lived in this wonderful country for 19 years and Canada is full of opportunities for all people who love to work. My family and I have experienced a better lifestyle in Canada and I am grateful. Also, I love Canadian people and culture. Living in Canada gives us the privilege of knowing a diverse culture that is enriching as well. Happy Canada Day from Maple Premium Services!"
