I am a Canadian…

I was not around in 1960 when these words were first spoken. But as we head to the polls once again, they remain as relevant and synonymous to Canada (and our society) now as Molson’s more recent, lighthearted (and perhaps more famous) take on Canadian culture – video embedded below. 

I am a Canadian,
free to speak without fear,
free to worship in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right,
free to oppose what I believe wrong,
or free to choose those
who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom
I pledge to uphold
for myself and all mankind.”
