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 carp and trout,
forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs overlooking sandy beaches with
an abundance of sea life, oceans filled with cod, and rivers stocked with
salmon." God continued, "I shall make the land rich in oil and minerals,
with verdant forests, so as to make the inhabitants prosper. I shall call
these inhabitants Canadians. 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
these Canadians?" "Not really," replied God. "Just wait and see the
neighbours I'm going to give them."
