Canadian citizenship is a privilege. It allows us to live in a free and democratic society, and affords us the safety and stability we so often seek. This is why I, as a Canadian, am proud to be celebrating Citizenship Week. I believe it is our duty to not only engage in our shared history as Canadians, but understand our responsibilities to one another. Together, we can continue to build a country that is above the rest.
I hope all Canadians take this opportunity to reflect on what it means to be Canadian so that we can move forward on a common path.
