This post is sentimental and off-topic, apart from its obvious link to the triumphs of Canadian transit and of Vancouver in particular. But hey, it’s my blog.
Though I lived in Canada for only a year, I hope my fondness for the country comes through in this sentimental meditation on Canadian thanksgiving. I wrote it five years ago around this time, when I was based in Vancouver, but it all feels true enough today.
Thanksgiving Day in Canada is Monday, October 11. May it be a day of joy and gratitude for all of HT’s Canadian readers, and for anyone who’s ever admired their remarkable nation.
Happy Thanksgiving to ya too Jarret 🙂
Its Thanksgiving in Canada, so all the Christmas decorations are up in the stores. Shouldn’t we get past Hallowe’en first?
Thanks for the wonderful sentiment, Jarrett. I feel lucky to live here in Vancouver, and I’m truly thankful.
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving to you too!
A very nice tribute, Jarrett. It will be appreciated by every Canadian who reads it.
And to think Quebec City is the oldest non-aboriginal settlement in North America. Who would’ve thought?
