I love my home

I live in a small province in Canada that is wildly underestimated by the Canada's other provinces and the rest of the world, sometimes by our own fault and some lack of education. It disturbs me really, the false ideas people harbour about my home. I suppose I am a Newfoundlander at heart, but I'm also proud of the strides our province has been making. I'm grateful for the education I've received and am appalled when people consider Newfoundlanders an under-educated population. Hopefully the future generations will debunk this myth.
But it's so much easier to be proud and passionate about my province when I see such beautiful tourism commercials as those that have been produced lately. This one isn't very recent, and it's not the best one, but it's stunning and captivating.

I love Newfoundland! (waves from Canada's other coast)
It's one of the only provinces I haven't seen in Canada, and I'm really dying to visit. I've heard the people are wonderful and friendly!
