While Canada Day has become a day to celebrate the greatness of Canada, I feel Victoria Day has become a day to celebrate the freedom of Canada. We live in a country were you can drive from one end to the other without the need to pass through a security checkpoint. A country where a trip to the camp by the lake for a weekend is not a bullet point in some secret government file. A country where you can be as completely irreverent towards Queen & Country as you damn well please and you won't be hauled off to a secret tribunal never to be seen again. Victoria Day is to me a time to reflect on the freedoms enjoyed under the sovereignty of the Maple Crown and to reflect on whether those freedoms are still secure.
Have a Happy Victoria Day,
