Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and expressed optimism about the future, declaring that, “There has never been a better time to look to Canada.”
In his inspiring speech made in English and French on January 20, 2016, the newly-elected prime minister of Canada spoke with confidence about being Canadian and promoted the virtues of the diversity and resourcefulness of the people who live and work in Canada.
Speaking with a fresh, positive perspective, the youthful Canadian leader expressed pride in Canada, declaring, “We have a diverse and creative population, outstanding education and healthcare systems, and advanced infrastructure. We have social stability, financial stability and a government willing to invest in the future.”
He also explained that there is a relationship between Canada’s diversity and its creativity, telling his audience, “Diversity isn’t just sound social policy. Diversity is the engine of invention. It generates creativity that enriches the world. We know this in Canada.”
The Canadian leader pointed out that while Canada is famous for its abundant natural resources, he wants people around the world to know Canada for the resourcefulness of its people.
Prime Minister Trudeau mentioned the University of Waterloo as an example of how Canadian diversity contributes to the innovation and resourcefulness of people who live and work in Canada. He said that the well-respected Canadian university, which is located in Ontario, has a large number of international students who bring with them different ideas which foster innovation and make Waterloo University graduates a valuable asset, particularly for high-tech firms in Canada and the US Silicon Valley.
Canada’s popular prime minister also told the gathering of global leaders and international media, “Canadians are remarkably confident. We believe in progress. And we are willing to work very, very hard to make it happen.”
The confident optimism expressed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a common Canadian cultural characteristic that many people find very attractive. Canada is a prosperous, progressive, multicultural country where people from different regions of the Earth come together and celebrate diversity as an individual and national strength. Canadians have the opportunity to work hard and enjoy the freedom to create for themselves a high quality of life that is envied around the globe.
