Short Description
We are more than just landscapes, polar bears, Mounties, and canoes. More than just "thank yous," "sorrys," hot prime ministers, and donut shops. We are also tattoo artists who have discovered the secret to cheating death. Designers hell bent on winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Super soldiers who take live vests off suicide bombers. Free thinkers who refuse to be tamed. We are global-village visionaries, world record setters, ambassadors of the imagination, and conquerors of the Rockies. We are Canadian. We are whoever we dream ourselves to be. Meet the glorious and free.
