Celebrate Canada Day with This Justin Bieber Flashback

13 Canadian Hunks
So much to be grateful for today.

It’s Canada’s birthday, which means it’s time for us to remind you that Justin Bieber is Canadian.

Today, we’re going back to 2011. Arcade Fire was slowly ruling the music charts with The Suburbs. Alexisonfire broke up. Avril Lavigne, Michael Buble and Feist released new albums. And Canada’s pride and joy appeared on Lopez Tonight to deliver a few precious notes from the Great White North’s national anthem.

Bieber was no Celine Dion, and he didn’t sing the entire anthem, but for many Beliebers around the world, the performance was pure joy, just like high quality maple syrup.

For good measure, the 21-year-old “Baby” singer apparently did a rendition of “O Canada” while in Australia this morning (or this evening, if you’re Down Under). Here’s the alleged Snapchat gem:

He also posted this on Twitter:

No word on whether or not the Biebs was sporting overalls today as a tribute to his other great moment in Canadian history.

Happy Canada Day, Beliebers.
