Our Canada, by Jean Kay

Jean Kay

From east to west in Canada,
from sea to shining sea,
far north to southern border,
our land’s glorious and free.

A mixture of nationalities,
all welcome to be living here.
We mix and mingle openly
at special events all year.

Climatic temperatures vary
from mild to extremely cold.
We choose where we live in Canada,
appealing to both young and old.

Many cultures and ethnic foods
are found all across our land—
singing, dancing, freedom of speech,
traditions from each native homeland.

Canada’s known to be peaceful,
let’s all help to keep it so,
as we enjoy all our freedoms,
for by these means do we grow.
