What Connects Canada?

I wondered while observing the Olympic Games fervour. I wondered about what unites Canadians.

The Americans have their revolution and their fight for independence. They have their constitution. They have 9/11. All of these give points of national, all-embracing emotional connection.

What does Canada have that unites its citizens emotionally?

I asked the next four people I talked to and received these answers:

· The Grey Cup

· Not God

· Ordinary people achieving great things

· Small people not trying to be a big player

In the soon future, I would like to ask that question again.
