To celebrate Canada Day I have chosen to read a Canadian authored (and published) book this weekend. (Every Little Piece of Me by Amy Jones). Every time we choose to read a Canadian published book we know there was a MADE IN CANADA team of editors, graphic designers, layout artists, publicists, printers, warehouse staff, delivery drivers and book sellers behind it. The Canadian book industry pumps money into the Canadian economy which creates jobs and pays taxes.
And that is just the book industry.
I’m also attending a gathering this weekend where we will wear red and wave little Canadian flags because truly, we are proud to be Canadian and know how blessed we are to live in this country. And yet next week some of us will go out and purchase products that are produced everywhere but Canada. There’s a disconnect here.
Let’s show our Canadian pride all year long by supporting Canadian-made products whenever possible.
