To celebrate Canada’s 148th birthday, Maclean’s is gathering 148 videos of the country’s most incredible people, places and experiences. “What it feels like to be Canadian” is a video series shot mostly on GoPro cameras, showcasing the beauty, excitement and adventure of our great nation.
Rolling out over the summer, the series will take you along with Canadian adventurer Will Gadd as he battles punishing conditions and hypothermia to become the first person to climb ice-covered Niagara Falls. You’ll get a first-hand look at Canada’s national women’s soccer team as it practises for the World Cup. What does it feel like to twirl like National Ballet of Canada principal dancer Sonia Rodriguez, or take in a private concert by the Barenaked Ladies as they sing O Canada? How about what it feels like to race one of the fastest men in Canada, or be the keeper of the Stanley Cup? And have you ever wondered what it feels like to become an honorary Newfoundlander or raise the Canadian flag on Parliament Hill?
Those experiences—and so many others—await, as Maclean’s gets set to kick off our video series just ahead of Canada Day. So check them out, and discover what it feels like to be Canadian.
