Editorial: Celebrating what makes us Canadian

It’s time to celebrate our great country today on Canada Day.

It’s time to celebrate our great country today on Canada Day.

There are so many things that make our country great — from the political freedoms we enjoy to the breathtaking natural landscapes all around us, we all know how lucky we all are to be born Canadian.

And as diverse as we all are as Canadians, so too are the ways we choose to celebrate.

For some a day of fishing or camping with friends and family is likely in store, while for others, marking the occasion with the community at Boitanio Park may be in order.

At the park family festivities get underway at 11 a.m. and include all sorts of fun activities and different food vendors as well as live music and dancers.

This past weekend, our Canadian heritage was on full display as the cowboy community put on an outstanding show during the Williams Lake Stampede that we can all be so very proud of.

Congratulations also to our area First Nations communities who whole-heartedly took part in the Stampede with multiple-day traditional riding to the event and exciting mountain race action during the rodeo. Well done.

Happy Canada Day everyone.
