Canada’s Birthday, the World’s Gift

My parents immigrated here from Scotland in the mid 70’s. I have wondered what being born there instead would have been like. I imagine I would have enjoyed living closer to the distilleries of ¬†Speyside than I do, and will testify a kilt is only slightly behind sweatpants in terms of comfort. Scotch and skirts aside, I’m eternally thankful it was Canada where my parents chose to start a new life and a family.
