Celebrating 150 Years

Saturday, July 1, 2017 @ 7:00 AM

Whether  you head to the park,  or  spend the  day  celebrating with family or friends,   all of us at 250News  wish  you  a very Happy Canada Day!

It makes us  wonder what  we love about  Canada,  or being Canadian.  Here, in no particular order, are a few  of our thoughts:

  • Hockey
  • Natural Beauty
  • Clean water
  • Cultural Diversity
  • Abundant natural resources
  • Friendly people ( we are so polite)
  • Poutine!
  • the CFL  ( we don’t need 4 downs to make ten yards!)
  • Toronto Blue Jays ( even if they are  based in the Big Smoke,  they are still  a national team)
  • REAL beer
  • Tim Horton’s  ( so what if it’s owned by Americans now,  the first one was here  and  we  coined the phrase ‘double-double’)


Now it’s your turn to tell us  some of your favourite things about  Canada, or being Canadian!




I grew up in a country without wars, I was privileged to go to school, work, pay taxes, grow a family. Yeah, when I think about all the countries where these things we take for granted are not possible, I am proud to be Canadian.
