The rain stopped, the sky cleared and the sun came out just in time to help celebrate Canada Day with a few thousand friends and neighbors. Canada, the country that welcomed my parents with open arms as they left a war ravaged Europe in search of a new life, with their last few dollars in their pockets and hearts full of hopes and dreams. Today’s gathering at Yonge-Dundas Square was a testament to the diversity and inclusion that makes this such an incredible country and city. What better way to celebrate this love than the creation of a huge living flag. Thousands gathered as red and white shirts were given out and people placed in the centre of the square as a human tribute to the greatest country on earth. There were many different and diverse bands and dancers throughout the day but at 4:30 the focus was on the flag! The smiles all real, the music pounding, the party was indeed on! Awesome to have been a part of and I have to say the love I felt was indeed heartwarming. Thanks to everyone I met and I hope everyone had an incredible Canada Day however you chose to celebrate it! Enjoy Toronto!
