Proud to be Canadian !
As Canadians, we have so much to be proud of!
Having lived in Europe for 21 years, in France and England, I can say from experience that Canadians have a quality of life that is unsurpassed! As much as I loved living in Europe for the many wonders and cultural history it has to offer, here in Canada, in addition to a rich cultural heritage and the beauty of our vast land, we live in peace.
As our Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, so eloquently states in his address for Canada Day:
“Diversity has been at the very core of Canada for centuries. It is the foundation on which our great country was built.”
And as a Québecoise, living in Montreal is an added bonus! Québecois have a true “joie de vivre!”. Montreal is alive and shining brightly this weekend with all the festivities for Canada’s 150th Birthday!
If you’re in Montreal this evening, July 1st 2017, be sure to drive past the beautiful Jacques-Cartier Bridge to be be amazed by the spectacular illumination and sparkling fireworks in red and white. The fireworks will be set off interactively whenever anyone enters certain hashtag codes in twitter!
Here is the news release:
“From sunset to 3 a.m., a special eight-minute light show will be presented hourly.
The public is invited to take an active part in this illumination through Twitter. Using the #Canada150 hashtag on July 1 will set off digital red fireworks on the surface of the bridge, and the #MTL375 and #illuminationMTL hashtags will set off digital white fireworks.
This is a unique opportunity to see the bridge draped in the colours of the Canadian flag, which will only happen on Canada Day. Don’t miss this brilliant production from Moment Factory!”
But this is just one of many hundreds of festivities planned! So to all my Clients, past and future, friends, and family, I wish you a fabulous and safe Canada Day weekend!
