Every Canadian could send a picture or a short video that best represented Canada in his/her opinions.
A few months later, this is the result. 65 hours of footage. 8,206 entries. 82 winners. 1 amazing video. Sit back, and enjoy!
Canada shared by Canadians – The Video
Pretty cool, eh?
This video is especially close to my heart. Being a proud Montrealer and Canadian at heart, but spending so much time on the road exploring the corners of the world – well, sometimes, I just miss my home. And this video quickly became a go-to whenever I get the Canada blues, immediately brightening my day by reminding me why I love my country so dearly.
Many of the clips depict things I’ve mentioned in the past – the Montreal festivals, snowshoeing, Quebec City, Niagara Falls, and of course, my home province. If this video of Canada shared by Canadians doesn’t inspire you to board the next plane to my country – I don’t know what will. By the time you’re done with this video you’ll want to see everything from British Columbia to Newfoundland and everything in between, including poutine, maple syrup, and some of the world’s cutest (and admittedly, sometimes scariest) animals.
Seriously – just come to Canada. YOU WILL LOVE IT!
