Some personal reflections on being awarded the Order of Canada, and some of the speaker's personal experiences. Beginning with a telling of what the speaker copes with on a daily basis. Some frequently asked questions. Approaching the 131st birthday of our country. Ways in which it has been a good year--a look back. Some comments concerning the referendum in Quebec. Opening up to Quebec without opening up old wounds. A quote from the man who wrote "What is a Nation?" Canada, calmer, more reflective, with people more willing to live together than ever before.
