Hi everyone! I hope everyone reading this have been having a great week!
I just got back from Vancouver where I was attending the Canada 150th celebrations in downtown Vancouver. There were so many proud Canadians and tourists attending all the festivities happening at Canada Place, where this 2-day celebration was the largest Canada Day Celebration west of Ottawa.
I had a blast at the Canada 150 parade in downtown Vancouver. Thank you to my wonderful friend, Dave Hartney for driving me in your classic Mustang convertible! Make sure to check out Dave Hartney’s band and his debut single “Party Lights”. Also last minute Lia Fallah, my pageant sister (Miss Vancouver World) rode with us as well.
The colony of Canada was established in 1534, so some may be wondering why we’re celebrating 150 years. That’s because we’re actually celebrating the Canadian Confederation, which is when the colonies of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia and New Brunswick were united as the “Dominion of Canada” on July 1, 1867.
Canada is such an amazing country and I am so happy to be a fifth generation Canadian. Canada is full of natural beauty and a very diverse population of different cultures and ethnic groups. Our population is 36 million people.
From the East Coast to the West Coast there is so much to see and I consider myself one of the lucky ones to have travelled across most of this vast, beautiful country of ours!
Plus this is definitely the year to get out there and explore Canada. For 2017, all of Canada’s national parks, heritage spaces and national museums are 100% free to enjoy. Growing up in Jasper National Park I recommend anyone taking full advantage of seeing any of Canada’s national parks and the beautiful geography of our country.
In just two weeks I will compete at the Miss World Canada pageant with the hope of going on to represent Canada on an international stage at Miss World. I would be so thrilled if I won Miss World Canada and was able to represent Canada on our 150th year!
