An ArmchairMayor.ca editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THIS IS, if you hadn’t noticed yet, Canada’s 150th birthday. As the year moves along, we’ll all pay a lot more attention to it, and it should be a lot of fun.
It’s not just a time for cutting ribbons and cakes, though, it’s a time to reflect upon ourselves as Canadians, and who we are.
Internationally, we’re known first and foremost as being polite. Trying to figure out if that label is deserved has become an industry, but I happen to think it’s true, or was.
