On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said:
"Today I am going to create a land called Canada, it will be a land of
outstanding natural beauty. It shall have tall majestic mountains
full of mountain goats, and eagles, beautiful sparkling lakes bountiful
with bass and trout, forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs
overlooking sandy beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers
stocked with salmon."
God continued, "I shall make the land rich in oil so as to make the
inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, and
they shall be known as the most friendly people on the earth." "But,
Lord," asked Gabriel "don't you think You are being too generous to
"Not really," replied God, "Wait 'til you see the neighbours I'm
going to give them."
