What do the telephone, instant mashed potatoes, the egg carton, a cardiac pacemaker and a snow blower have in common? They were each invented by a Canadian. For history buffs, a country’s past offers a wealth of fascinating information and trivia that can both entertain and educate. But, even more importantly, a nation’s history is about people who, with courage and conviction, dared to make a difference and change lives. Much of what we enjoy or take for granted today came at a great cost – because of someone down in history who didn’t settle for the status quo. As we approach Canada Day, we ask ourselves: What does it mean to be a Canadian? To help answer this question, we will look at a few Canadians who have made a positive mark on our history and have helped to define who we are as a nation and society. Join us this week at one of our two services – at 10:30 a.m. at Innis Town Hall or at 2:30 p.m. at the World Vision Centre.
