I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, moved to Brampton when I was six, Hockley Village when I was eleven, and London, Ontario when I was nineteen (for college). Then I bounced around between London and Toronto and ended up settling back in London in 2005.
I am Canadian, my Mom is Canadian, and my Dad was born in Newfoundland before it became a part of Canada. We used to joke that he wasn’t really Canadian, he didn’t like that very much. But he’d always smile and say that he had a cookie tin to prove it.
Why I Love Canada
- weather – I know I complain about the cold, but the diversity keeps it interesting
- all the different eco-systems that call Canada their home
- there’s a lot of people that live here but it’s not overcrowded
- the cool breeze early on a summer morning
- the smell of the air right before it rains
- the excuse that winter gives us to hibernate
- the fast pace at which the summer flies by
- all the different people from all different walks of life
- the food – as a country I don’t think we’re really known for our food, but we have people from all over the world that live here and they bring with them the best of their country’s delicacies
- everyone here is so polite
- it’s safe
That’s it for this week’s edition of the List Love Book Club, I’d love to hear what country you’re from and why you love it!
