I don’t know if this is a comment on my twisted psyche or on the culture of the moment, but I couldn’t bring myself to comfortably celebrate this country’s 149th birthday until I was absolutely sure no mass-killings or bombings were happening. Because who wants to be the happy idiot who finds out later that while they were scarfing down bbq and having fun, someone else was dying?
Also on that note, Canada also has brought in over 25,000 refugees this year and look! nothing happened! So stuff it, racists.
Anyway, it’s officially July 2nd and it’s now safe to celebrate! Happy Canada Day!
