Watching the Olympic Opening Ceremonies puts to bed any lie that Canada has no culture. A magnificent production by any and all standards that spoke to our pride as we often do: quietly and confidently.
Of the many highlights one was special for me. It was the Slam Poetry of Shane Koyczan at the end. His piece "We Are More" should become as well known and revered by Canadians and as self-defining about who we are as a nation and as a people as our beloved Flanders Fields.
