Happy Canada Day! Here's What Canadians Love About The Great White North

Oh, Canada. You're turning 147 today but you don't look a day over 27.

Seriously, we would know. The Huffington Post Canada Travel just spent the last 15 days driving across the Great White North from Vancouver, B.C. to Charlottetown, P.E.I as part of The Great Canadian Road Trip. And after clocking in some 9,000 km on the road, we can confirm that this one good-looking country.

Timing-wise, there couldn't be a better moment to wrap up a cross-country summer road trip, ending just in time for 2014 Canada Day festivities.

Sure, fireworks, cake and maple leafs tattooed on faces and emblazoned on flags are obvious symbols for July 1st. But what is it that Canadians love about the Great White North the other 364 days of the year?

And so we asked 10 people – one for each province – during stops in lesser-known communities to share with us what they loved about being Canadian and their country.

Check out the video above to find out their answers and be sure to leave a comment about what you love about Canada below.
