"They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them

For Hikmet Çetinkaya, the poppy represents the beauty of nature and the fragility of life. For Canadians and many others, it is a symbol of remembrance (due to the popular ww I poem "In Flanders Fields," by John McCrae).

What Do Most Americans Not Understand About CANADA?

  • Not all of us want to move to the US.
  • We do not want to join the US.
  • We do not spell things in English differently, they do. We spell English like the English.
  • We are not a socialist Country. We are a democratic Country. Like ALL democratic Countries (including the US) we have some social programs to assist the poor. Like other western Countries (except the US), we have a health care program.
