I know this is a spoof, but [My Mother’s Red Hat]

I adore Alanis (see multiple previous posts) and Alicia (fellow vegan)! Jaysus, Jaysus!

The Rural Alberta Advantage! Stab at indie movies all they like, I loved it anyway.

God bless Funny or Die. Humour me and watch the video.

Happy Canada Day, fellow Canadians!

I really can’t say how proud I am to be Canadian. Polite, kind, and loved at home and abroad.

When I was in grade 3 we used to have to sing this song and I found it so annoying at the time (it was between this and Camelot). Looking back, and I’m probably over-emotional due to stress, I could cry because Canada really is as great as these lyrics proclaim.

Canada Is, by Roger Whittaker

Canada is the Rocky Mountains
Canada is Prince Edward Island
Canada is a country made for love
Canada is La Belle Provence
Canada is the Yukon Mine
Canada is a country full of love.

We have love for our neighbour
Of whatever creed or colour
We have love for our cities
And our valleys and our plains
We have a voice that is calling
Telling all the world we’re willing
To welcome them to this great land
For that’s what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountains
Canada is Prince Edward Island
Canada is a country made for love
Canada is La Belle Provence
Canada is the Yukon Mine
Canada is a country full of faith.

We have faith in our future
We’re ready for tomorrow
We have faith in our children
For our future’s in their hands
We have a voice that is calling
Telling us to keep on hoping
For time will make this wild land great
And that’s what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountains
Canada is Prince Edward Island
Canada is a country made for love
Canada is La Belle Provence
Canada is the Yukon Mine
Canada is a country loving peace.

We have peace in our valleys
We’re happy and contented
We have peace in our cities
And our boundaries have no chains
We have a voice that is calling
Telling all free men we’re willing
To show them how to live in peace
For that’s what Canada is.

Canada is the Rocky Mountains
Canada is Prince Edward Island
Canada is a country made for love
Canada is La Belle Provence
Canada is the Yukon Mine
Canada is a country full of love.

Canada is the Rocky Mountains
Canada is Prince Edward Island
Canada is a country made for love
Canada is La Belle Provence
Canada is the Yukon Mine
Canada is a country full of love.

Peaceful and peacekeeping. Our songs (national anthem included) are so humbly patriotic – no bombs bursting in air (USA), no bloodied banners being raised (France), no being asked to be shown the way of the Lord (Italy), no cannons roaring or rifles pealing (Ireland).

(Blah, ended up crying after all.)
