    In Canada, we celebrate our differences, embrace our vibrant cultural mosaic, and try to take care of each other.

    And we’re (usually) pretty low key about our achievements. But, did you know Canada was the 3rd country in space, the 1st to have a satellite telecommunications system, and 1st to have an operational and commercially-focused radar remote sensing system?
