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",

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!
