Category: what canada has done for me

As a proud Canadian citizen would like to express my sincere thanks to Canada after 66 years of coping with adversity and surviving with dignity. I was sent to join my mother in 1947 in Montreal, Quebec, as a thirteen-year-old boy. I was put out to work on the day after my arrival in Canada. My new stepfather was a Second World War veteran who wanted me to contribute to his family home. Since that time I never stopped working, or was ever unemployed in Canada. Also I have not had to use any government benefits that Canada has for its people.
