Thought of the week: I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country. The heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind. John Diefenbaker (1895 – 1963) 13th Prime Minister of Canada
