I’m a hugely proud Canadian. I love this country. I’ve always thought that our wide-ranging landscapes are among the differentiators that make our country so unique – from the beautiful Atlantic coast and Ontario’s lakes to the expansive prairies, the Rocky Mountains and beyond. To think of a Trans Canada Trail extending from coast to coast to coast that will be completed in time to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017 – a Trail that will literally connect us and allow everyone to participate – sends a fabulous message of unity across our country. Most, if not all of the people who have the wherewithal to be Chapter 150 supporters care as deeply as I do – as we all do – about Canada’s inclusive nature. What a unique way to say ‘Happy Birthday, Canada. Good for you. Good for all of us. There are a lot of great causes to support in this country, but this one is as meaningful and lasting as they get.
