Road trip across Canada – a beautiful thing

People caring and compassionate, and that is what makes us a great country

Driving across Canada – beautiful.

Editor, The News:

I just recently returned from my trip across Canada and what a magnificent country it is.

But what impressed me more than just its natural beauty is its citizens.

As I was driving, I witnessed many great Canadians out running or riding their bikes across this great country to raise awareness for their different causes.

Like the fellow who was riding his bike with his dog in tow, to raise awareness for homelessness, and the need for affordable housing in Canada.

And the others who were running for their various health causes, such as cancer.

This is what left the greatness impression on me during my trip, these truly great Canadians who are sacrificing their time to help others.

Canada is a caring and compassionate country, and that is what makes us a great country.

It is the love and generosity of its citizens that sets us apart form others.

I love Canada and its caring and compassionate people.
