Thank you Nova Scotia for Sidney Crosby of Cole Harbour and Anne Muuay of Springhill. Thank you for The Blue Nose and Peggy's Cove. Thank you for the Cabot Trail, a taste of the Scottish Highlands in Canada.
Thank you Prince Edward Island for Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables and P.E.I. potatoes. Thank you for being the Cradle of Confederation where the idea of a country called Canada was conceived at the Charlottetown Conference of 1864.
Thank you New Brunswick foe your Acadian heritage and culture. Thank for the famed Reversing Falls and Magnetic Hill.
Oh yes, thanks Maritimers, for your seafood, especially the clam chowder.
