This Heritage of Freedom


I am a Canadian,
a free Canadian,
free to speak without fear,
free to worship God in my own way,
free to stand for what I think right,
free to oppose what I believe wrong,
free to choose those who shall govern my country.
This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and for all mankind.

John Diefenbaker, 1960

Not that any of that silly romantic stuff makes any sense in the New Canada.
