My wish for Canada is: 1) for more environmental sustainability 2) LGBTQ2A rights and acceptance into certain things like afterschool sports and programs. Just because they're different doesn't mean they're not human.

My hope for Canada in the next 150 years is for the country to increase its diversity and praise the differences. In Halifax, after the Orlando incident, the city coloured it's sidewalks in pride colours. Halifax especially, is extremely diverse and welcoming to all types of people.
