Canada's Motto

Did you know Canada..  I've done a few posts lately that included mottos, including the Snowbirds and the HMCS Charlottetown.

But what's Canada's motto? It's "a mari usque ad mare" which is Latin for "From sea to sea" - this is part of Psalm 72:8 and was suggested by Joseph Pope, then-Under Secretary of State, when the Arms of Canada were redesigned in 1921.
