Embrace Canadian patriotism and Olympic pride: PM Harper

Prime Minister Stephen Harper encouraged Canadians to express their patriotism in support of Canadian atheletes at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Canada, our Canada, is truly worthy of our pride and patriotism … We will ask the world to forgive us this time, this uncharacteristic outburst of patrotism an pride, our pride of being part of a country that is strong, confident, and stands tall among the nations.

– Stephen Harper

Harper’s speech marks the first time a Prime Minister formally addressed the British Columbia Legislature since the province joined Canada in 1871.
