I am a Canadian, a free Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship God in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, free to choose those who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind. —John Diefenbaker, Canadian Bill of Rights, 1960
Historically, a Canadian is an American who rejects the Revolution. —Northrop Fry
