Canada 150


My parents emigrated from Hungary to Canada in 1956; it was a long, arduous trip via ship and while they were leaving difficult times in Hungary, they were still unsure and nervous about what was ahead, especially my mom. The original plan was to head to the U.S., likely Seattle, where my dad could have accepted a job at Boeing. But when they arrived, the lineup to apply to the U.S. was long and my dad’s patience was not, so Canada it was! πŸ˜‚ 

I know, at times, my mom gets homesick for Hungary, but I’ll be forever grateful that they ended up in this big, beautiful, welcoming place. 

Canada is home. Canada is my home. 
Happy Canada Day, my fellow Canucks!!
