Patriotism

PATRIOTISM

Patriotism is a virtue; nationalism is a sin.

Canada is a constitutional monarchy with parliamentary democracy.  Our system of government is superior and more stable than the systems of government of many other countries.


The Queen of Canada and Head of State:

Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second
Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The Canadian Royal Anthem:  God Save the Queen!

God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God Save the Queen.
