Mixed feelings on this Canada Day.

Without a Blue Jays team to complain about, my thoughts turn more political. You’ve been warned.

Although there’s no country I’d rather live in, and there’s much to be proud of, pretty down about our treatment of certain groups, especially our Indigenous Peoples.

Canada, we can be so much more than hockey, syrup, being polite, and the Rockies.
We need to forget our own PR.
We need to do better.

To me, Canada is a promise unfulfilled, but a hopeful work in progress.

Stay masked, everyone. Stay outta crowds.
And like the great experiment Canada was founded to be, stay open to change.
