Jo's Certified Canadian!

Our online friend of The Canadian Way received her Canadian citizenship yesterday in Nova Scotia. It's great to see other people who have emigrated from the US get their Canadian citizenship after jumping through all of the hoops involved.


At the ceremony there were:

50 NEW CANADIANS FROM 23 DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

AUSTRALIA, CHILE, CHINA, CUBA, ENGLAND, FRANCE, IRAN, IRAQ, JAMAICA, KAZAKHSTAN, LEBANON, PAKISTAN, PHILIPPINES, PORTUGAL, RUSSIA, SCOTLAND, SIERRA LEONE, SWEDEN, SWITZERLAND, TURKEY, UKRAINE, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

And, as Jo says: "Now that's cultural diversity!"

To commemorate the occasion, JoJo and I flew the Maple Leaf over our dock here in Florida.

Here's the official photo of one of the newest Canadian Citizens
(Complete with an RCMP "Mountie")
Congratulations, Jo - You've earned it!!

That is awesome news for Jo. She helped us out immensly when we were filling out our application. I must have e-mailed her 20 times with questions and she got us in contact with her friend at legit to ease our anxiety.

I am so happy for her.

She'll make a fine Canadian, I'd say!
