Canada has never been a melting-pot; more like a tossed salad. ~ Arnold Edinborough #quote

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. ~ John Diefenbaker #quote

It is wonderful to feel the grandness of Canada in the raw. ~ Emily Carr #quote

Americans are benevolently ignorant about Canada, while Canadians are malevolently well informed about the United States. ~ J. Bartlet Brebner #quote

There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and generous-hearted people. ~ Winston Churchill #quote

When I'm in Canada, I feel this is what the world should be like ~ Jane Fonda #quote

When they said Canada, I thought it was up in the mountains somewhere. ~ Marilyn Monroe #quote

I had no idea Canada could be so much fun. ~ Bruce Willis #quote

14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and lasted a little over an hour.
