Being Canadian my opinion is probably biased however I do believe Canada is a very peaceful country. Canada has built a reputation as a peace keeping country even though it has become tarnished over the years. Canada grants people of all origins an opportunity to live in a very diverse and free country. After all our country was built by the people brave enough to make Canada their home.
