Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st across the country. July 1st marks the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada. Canadians all across our vast country are celebrating our year's biggest national party! There will be food, fireworks, dancing, music festivals, fiddling, face painting, picnics......... the works!
Things to Celebrate Today:
- Our Canadian confederation is 144 years old today! Happy Birthday Canada
- Freedom we earned it and we have it......who could ask for more!
- Final Canada Day in KANDAHAR, Afghanistan for our Canadian troops. It's a time of great celebration, reflection and fond wishes for troops who are in the cusp of ending the country's longest shooting war in two generations. Hats off and a huge wish for a speedy return to all our Canadian Heros.
- Welcome all new Canadian citizens. Help keep us proud to be Canadian!
For all my family, friends, and fellow Canadians, celebrate, be safe and have a wonderful birthday celebration. I know we will.............. picture us eating ribs, corn on the cob, etc. and raising a glass in celebration.
