3.13. Canadian Rant

I Am Canadian: The Rant Ad

(actor clears throat; his speech becomes progressively more emphatic)

Hey. I'm not a lumberjack,
or a fur trader...
and I don't live in an igloo
or eat blubber, or own a dogsled...
and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada,
although I'm certain they're really, really nice.

I have a prime minister,
ot a president.
I speak English and French,
not American.
And I pronounce it “about,not “aboot".

I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing.
Diversity, not assimilation,
and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.
A toque is a hat.
A chesterfield is a couch.
And it is pronounced “zed, not “zee",
“zed"!

Canada is the second largest landmass!
The first nation of hockey!
And the best part of North America!

My name is Joe!
And I am Canadian!
