A golden sand desert that stretches up to the majestic mountains of The Yukon. The sound of small waves galumphing in and out of a lichen-covered rock on a morning canoe paddle in Ontario. The glorious pink cherry blossoms that blanket the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia in May. I haven't seen all of this country, not by a long shot. But I've seen enough of Canada's endless coasts and wondrous lakes and colourful cities to know we should be celebrating pretty hard when the clock strikes midnight on Sunday and the calendar jumps to Canada Day.
