“Something to Sing About”

Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning: NATION

Since everyone has a nation, a place they call home, and hopefully likes their own land, there should be lots of upbeat responses to this one.

According to some United Nation study on health and quality of life, Canada is one of the best countries in the world to live in. Having travelled across this fair land and lived in six provinces, I can say this is so: I do indeed live in the best country in the world. 🙂

I lived with my aunt & uncle in British Columbia for a year when I was around four years old, so can’t really count that as practical experience, but as an adult I’ve lived in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec. The only provinces we haven’t visited at least briefly are Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. In spite of the occasional winter chill, I feel our quality of life has been “as good as it gets” all across our glorious nation.

According to Wiki: “Something to Sing About” is a patriotic song written by folk singer Oscar Brand that sings the praises of the many different regions of Canada.

  1. Lovely Christine. And I can’t agree with you more! Canada rocks! The only two provinces I have yet to visit are Newfoundland and Nova Scotia… they will be crossed off hopefully sooner rather than later.

    1. You could live in Florida — and risk getting shot by some nut with an AK47. 😉

      I may grumble about our -30 “deep freeze” but I’ve been told by friends who live in the South that they have twenty times as many creepy crawlies as we do. And snakes. Also, I visited in Mississippi for a week one August and after 8 am it’s simply too hot to be outdoors. So I’ll be happy here.

      I think everybody in northern land wishes to be somewhere warmer in the winter, though. Thanks for reading and for your comment, Ali.
