Here's mine:

When Canadians elected a strong, stable, national, Conservative majority government

I was overjoyed on May 2, 2011, when I saw that Canadians overwhelmingly voted for a strong, stable, national, Conservative majority government!  It spoke volumes to me about the desire for strong government, a strong military, a balanced budget, and principled leadership in important portfolios such as defence and immigration.  Seeing such a great result also reaffirmed Canadians' conservative identities, and sent the clear message to the Liberals, NDP, and Bloc Quebecois that their job-killing taxes and separatist values are not acceptable here in Canada. What a great day to be a Canadian!
