Ron MacLean and Don Cherry

Another Canada Day is almost upon us. What better time to share some shots of awesome Canadians expressing what this country means to them?

Over the past season, we've asked some of our guests to write down "What Canada Means To Me."

Their responses range from the simple and concise (Stuart MacLean says Canada means "Home") to the more complex and doodly (see: Margaret Atwood).

Canada Day may not happen until Monday, but if you're in NYC on Saturday, you can spread the Canuck love early. George is hosting Canada Day NYC tomorrow, the 29th, in Central Park.

Spirit of the West, Joel Plaskett and LIGHTS will all be performing, there will be good Canadian grub, and members of the RCMP will be on hand for pictures.

And on Canada Day itself, July 1st, George will be in London, England to host Canada Day London in Trafalgar Square. Lots more events are planned for the day, including live sets from The Tragically Hip, The Sheepdogs, Jann Arden, Arkells, and First Nations Pow-Wow and Round Dance singing group Northern Cree.

Get all the details about both events in our Canada Day post.

And if you're hanging out in Canada on Monday, make sure to tune into our Canada Day Special, airing at 7pm on CBC Television.

World figure skating champions and Olympic gold medalists Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir will be in the red chair, Ron James is joining the Three Things Panel, and George will share his top entertainment picks for Canada Day.

And that's just the beginning: we've got all-new shows every day in July. Tune in every weeknight this month at 7 pm to catch them.
