Being Canadian in the Twenty First Century means believing in peace, order, and good government. This is a phrase in the Canadian Constitution that seems to encapsulate our character. These qualities are what we strive for, and often achieve. It also gives us a tripartite motto like France’s (“Liberty, Fraternity, Equality”) and America’s (“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”) This essay will attempt to provide pertinent examples of how our country emulates its motto.

After the 9/11 attacks, the United States was in a war fury, charging into Afghanistan and into Iraq....The end:
