Canadians & the Commonwealth

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm curious. How many of us on here are Canadians or other members of the old Commonwealth?  If you are, let us know! 

To start us off, I am Canadian (lol), from Alberta. 
(If you understood that reference, you probably are too!)

What is “the old commonwealth”? I am Canadian, but I am not familiar with that term. Too many years since I was in school and I don’t follow politics, so can only guess what you mean here.

It's a loose association of countries that used to be part of the British Empire.  Maybe it's not as 'old' as I thought it was.

Australia is still a part of the Commonwealth.

Canada is more like an associate member now, hence the "Old Commonwealth" reference by the Canadian.......

You blessed people, having the opportunity to see those stunning views in real life. I've seen imagery from Canada in youtube clips and I felt already refreshed. It looks absolutely amazing, one of the most beautiful places on earth no doubt.

 I've been given the chance to visit, but I refused. I think just visiting will make me depressed when my trip will end. I've visited the US a while ago and it has caused much angst and frustration, once you set foot in a civilised world, you see the difference especially if you're coming from an undeveloped country. That's why I kinda dislike travelling, seeing gorgeous places and then returning to a dumpster will make a person hate his life.

   I can admire from afar and I can pray for countries that I love, don't think it's wrong, it's not necessary to be American or Canadian to love those countries.

  Be grateful if you were born there. US/Canda/Australia/New Zealand are wonderful and magnificent countries.
