Our little song that could, as I like to call it, has been chugging along beautifully on its own while I had to withdraw from the world for a while during a time of tremendous grieving.
My world will never be the same and at the moment, as I start to emerge, 2 things are keeping me going: Kait’s Comfort Kits (read about them by clicking on the above tab) and my various projects related to “This Is My Canada/Mon cher Canada”. Our video now has over 313,000 YouTube views ( as at August 2019) all on its own steam so that is encouraging that it is still of interest to people! Keep viewing/keep sharing.
I am working with an organization called “Young Imaginations” that teaches Canadian history through the arts. The plan is to incorporate “This Is My Canada/Mon cher Canada”. As well, I am in the midst of writing about the history of the Acadians, my ancestry to add to their programming.
So history, music and education are my next career direction incorporating a lot of what I have been doing and have been interested in most of my life.
And finally, a message to Dream Team Canada: thank you for your patience and understanding. I have Certificates for all of you which I will be arranging to distribute to each of you at some point. They have been in the back of my car for almost 2 years now! But that’s life for you. Doesn’t always move in the direction you are going.

Even through grief you continue to inspire. Thankfully you have these projects to get you trough.
When you are working on a legacy, you dig deep and find inspiration in the people around you who are supportive and caring. Kait and I used to talk about that – blessings are found in the gratitude.
I love the song even more every time I hear it. Something to be very proud of. No worries about any delays. We all understand and are there for you. 😘
It sure came from that deep place of pride we all feel about home. You have been SO patient and loving and supportive – merci mon amie XO
Your journey has not been one taken alone, as you well know. Your “bevy” of angels surround you and we will continue to do so, as you travel along this path. Much love always my friend.
I feel blessed being supported by you both and so many others – you are all my earth angels. Love to you XO
As you may know my mother surname to Cancer in the year 2012. This of course was not easy for me nor was was it for her mother.
Jeanette May God Bless and keep you well
Blessings to you too Stephan.
