Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know. I help him remember things like, don't put the phone in the fridge! Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He's a handful!

Know what? We're at the store with our buddies Lulu and Ella. We're all in a shopping buggy that looks like a car. I know what shopping is. It's when we buy things. If we buy something made in O Canada that  means people work. Then they can buy gummy worms and root beer for their families. Miss Jackie taught us all this at the Scruffy Maple Day Care Centre. She taught me about art. I can colour inside the lines and I can paw paint, too. Oh! Wait! I know something made in O Canada. Peanut butter! I wonder if Mars bars are made on Earth. I'll ask James. He knows lots of stuff.

Oh. Wait! Did you hear that? James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario! We gotta go find James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed.

This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Buy things made on Earth! Then you will help people work.  Okay! Over and out!"
