A Great Place to Live
Canada is one of the best countries in the world to live, learn and work. From wide-open spaces to the most cosmopolitan places, Canada offers beauty, variety and an enviable quality of life. Canada is a place where people can realize their dreams, where families can enjoy a standard of living second to none, and where businesses enjoy a competitive edge.
Canadians are hard-working, ambitious people who are proud of their successful, independent country. They want better lives for themselves, their children and future generations. They believe in tolerance, justice and providing a helping hand to the less fortunate. More than empty promises, equality is enshrined in Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the country’s Constitution, guaranteeing freedom and fairness for all.
Equality and Multiculturalism
Canada is a large country in both size and spirit. Canada ranks first among the G7 countries in providing equal opportunities for individuals, whether native-born or a new arrival. Canadians welcome immigrants from around the globe. Almost all of the world’s ethnic groups are represented in Canada, creating one of the world’s most culturally diverse and multilingual societies, with over 200 languages spoken. Canada is also a world leader in integrating newcomers, with progressive immigration laws highly conducive to hiring foreign workers.

the blind man and the advertising story
No-one was giving him any money.
A young advertising writer walked past and saw the blind man with his sign and empty cup, and also saw the many people passing by completely unmoved, let alone stopping to give money.
The advertising writer took a thick marker-pen from her pocket, turned the cardboard sheet back-to-front, and re-wrote the sign, then went on her way.
Immediately, people began putting money into the tin cup.
After a while, when the cup was overflowing, the blind man asked a stranger to tell him what the sign now said.
“It says,” said the stranger, ” ‘It’s a beautiful day. You can see it. I cannot.’ “
(My Dad told me this story when I was a teenager in the 1970s. I saw it recently on a video on the web. This story illustrates in a timeless way how important choice of words and language is when we want to truly connect with and move other people. Thanks BC and SD)
|In 1901, the Société des Automobiles Delahaye constructed a factory in Paris, where they continued to manufacture cars and trucks. In 1908, they began producing four cylinder engines, in sizes of 1.5 and 2.1 litres, as well as a 2.6-litre V6. They also licensed their designs to manufacturers in the U.S. and Germany. By the end of World War I, their major income was from their truck business.In 1934, they introduced the 134N, a 12cv car with a 2.15-litre four cylinder engine, and the 18cv 138, powered by a 3.2-litre six — both engines derived from their successful truck engines. In 1935, the introduction of the sporting Model 135 “Coupe des Alpes” car brought success to their car business as well, while the truck business also continued to thrive. Some of the great coach builders who provided bodies for Delahayes include Figoni et Falaschi, Chapron, and Letourneur et Marchand.read more|
After a lady’s car had leaked motor oil on her cement driveway, she bought a large bag of cat litter to soak it up. It worked so well, that she went back to the store to get another bag to finish the job. The clerk remembered her. Looking thoughtfully at her purchase, he said, “Lady, if that were my cat, I’d put him outside!”
