70th Anniversary of Canadian Citizenship


♪ Chief Justice, ladies and gentlemen, I speak as a citizen of Canada. On behalf of all Canadians, I congratulate the new citizens, who have just received their certificates, on having become citizens of Canada. I welcome you into the full enjoyment of the rights of Canadian citizenship. Canada was founded on the faith that two of the proudest races in the world, despite barriers of tongue and creed, could work together in mutual tolerance and mutual respect, to develop a common nationality. So long as we continue to cherish the high ideals of our common citizenship, our country will make a great and it may be a decisive contribution to the preservation of human freedom and to the establishment of enduring peace. That is the largest opportunity and the heaviest responsibility of Canadian Citizenship. ♪
