Canada Day is not only a time to fly our country’s flag, it also provides each of us with an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, enjoy a barbecue, paddle a canoe, or watch a beautiful display of fireworks. Canada Day is a holiday for everyone.
This year, Canada Day marks the third anniversary of Cox Automotive entering the Canadian market (in May of 2015). The evolution of our company – and our Canadian team – over the last three years has been extraordinary.
In that time, I am proud of how our Canadian team members have fortified a strong dedication and commitment to our clients and business partners across this vast country we call home. Canadians have long been at the forefront of technological advances. Through innovation and learning, our team members are creating new and improved ways to forge paths and conquer tasks in a more advanced and current way, which is the cornerstone of transformation.
I would like to take this time to recognize our Cox Automotive colleagues, business partners, family and friends south of the border; we wish you all a very safe and happy Independence Day.
I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge that one of the core values of all Cox Automotive team members – around the globe – is to ensure we contribute to the communities we work, live and play in. Canada is a very fortunate nation. We must take every opportunity to make giving a part of our daily lives.
Ours is a land of history and diversity. On this Canada Day, I want to wish my fellow Canadians a safe and delightful celebration. I can genuinely say I am not only proud to be Canadian, but also extremely proud to be part of Team Cox Automotive Canada!
