Happy Canada D’eh! My Guide To The Strong & Free True North

To celebrate Canada’s birthday, I thought I would share with my friends from all around the world what makes my country so amazing to the Canadian I am.

Let’s backtrack a little; I am a French immigrant who has lived most of his adult life in Canada and who has only become Wayne Gretzky’s compatriot a few years ago. So please bear in mind this is my point of view and that it does not intend to portray itself as the one shared by every Canadian out there.

  • Has the longest street in the world: Yonge Street with 56 km (35 mi).
