Swanson on CANADA DAY

Despite our founders
involvement in Indigenous atrocities,
in slave trading,
Canada has evolved.
far from perfect.
far from the racial biases
of years ago.
Celebrating these changes
encourages further progress
working hard towards
greater equality.
lets not lose
what we have gained
lets not give up
the struggle for all Canadians
July 1
Canada Day
we stand on guard for thee
