Why we should celebrate these values and beliefs about Canada?

We, as Canadians, should celebrate these values and beliefs in Canada because it represents 'Canada'. Canadians, in the past, have accomplished many things that made Canada claim its independence. We might've had fights or battles between various communities and countries; but it was worth it for the future of Canada. Since Canada is turning 150, this year, we should celebrate the places, people, etc. throughout Canada because it has taken many difficult paths to make this event or item allowed. Moving towards the future, Canada will and should always be inclusive and open-minded to make new ideas happen.
