Happy Canada Day!

It’s Canada Day long weekend. While Canada’s 150th birthday should acknowledge the past suffering of Indigenous peoples, there are still things I’m grateful for all the privilege I have experienced in being born here.

I’m relatively free to look how I want, studied what I wanted, marry who I want to. I can blog about what I want, a freedom of speech that doesn’t happen in China where my parents were born.

I think we can celebrate Canada as a country and the freedom it allows many, but also continue listening to our Indigenous neighbours.
