Happy Birthday Canada!
From B.C. to Newfoundland
We want to
celebrate this day!
There never was
a land more grand!
Let’s cherish our democracy
Though threatened
morals, family, unity.
We know that we
shall always stand
Faithful and proud
on guard for thee.
We don’t know
what the future holds
For this our precious
native land.
But this one thing
I surely know
God holds this country
in His Hand.

Love your poem, as usual!! There are many things about Canada's government that I wish our country would adopt!!! You certainly seem to have less strife and problems.
