We are so fortunate to celebrate this incredible milestone in Canada's history. Where we live in Muskoka, Canada is truly represented here with it's rugged terrain and beautiful granite outcroppings, majestic forests and pristine lakes. The True North Strong and Free exists in Muskoka and I, for one, am grateful that my European parents decided Canada was the best place to live and raise a family and became Canadian citizens in 1953. It was true then and it is true today. Thank you Canada for making this the best country in the world to live.  I'm proud to be a Canadian!

Here are three best value maintenance upgrades to consider:
