We are the builders of our nation, the legitimate heirs and descendants of the original Founders of British North America whose legal name is Canada.
We are the direct descendants of the original constituent peoples who were ethnic majorities at the time of Confederation. In addition, we are their cultural heirs and descendants by choice.
Those of us who made the voyage later, who admire and adopt as our own the British and the French-Canadian institutions of Canada, are also the cultural heirs of the British North America Act of 1867.
Together, we constitute and defend our Confederation.
