Feelings encapsulated

Re: “I choose to be Canadian,” June 30-July 6

Thank you for your editorial. Now approaching 75 years of age, I’ve had the good fortune to live in this country for some 47 years. I arrived, supposedly on a vacation, to visit my eldest brother who emigrated immediately after the war. British Columbia worked its magic, and I never went back (well not for 20 years at least.) Your words encapsulated exactly how I feel about this wonderful country. Thank you for your terrific words.

John H. Ratel,Victoria
