In honour of Canada Day I spent the weekend baking things red and white. I started on Saturday baking a custom baseball cake for a customer and followed up on Monday by making a Stripes & Hearts Cake in tribute to the nation that has been my home since the day I was born. I’m not an overly patriotic individual. I care far too much about the injustices our Government is perpetrating to ever be quite frankly, but I do love where I live.
This Canada Day I was reminded of how lucky I am to live in a country that affords me rights that so many are denied. My hearts go out especially to all the women, in the United States and elsewhere, who are fighting tooth and nail for the reproductive, social, and political rights that I and so many others sometimes take for granted. I am also reminded that the rights and privileges that I so cherish are in many cases not extended to all Canadians even though they should be. Days like today make me remember why I want to get into politics and why all the struggle is going to be worth it. And on that note please enjoy the action shots above. Happy Canada Day everyone!
