Happy Canada Day

Happy Birthday Canada!

Country Profile: CanadaEncyclopedia: CanadaMap: Canada
The year 2008 marks the 141th celebration of
Canada Day, which commemorates the day that Canada became a nation. The holiday is observed on July 1 (unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case Canada Day is observed the following day). On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act united the British colonies of Upper Canada, Lower Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia into "one dominion under the name of Canada." These four colonies became Canada's first four provinces; Lower Canada was renamed Quebec, and Upper Canada was renamed Ontario. The July 1 holiday was known as Dominion Day until October 27, 1982, when an act of parliament established the name Canada Day. The new name symbolized a step away from Canada's colonial past. The holiday had also sometimes been known as First of July or Confederation Day. Like Fourth of July festivities in the United States, Canada Day is celebrated with such summer pleasures as picnics, barbeques, and fireworks. The name Canada derives from an Iroquoian word for "village," kanata, that French explorers heard used to refer to the area near present-day Quebec City. Today, Canada comprises ten provinces and three territories.

I can never think of Canada without also thinking about the United States. We live almost 30 miles from the border of Fort Erie and Buffalo.
The Americans have always been our friends!
Our veranda is filled with Canadian and American Flags much to the displeasure of some of our neighbors and these flag shall stay there until at least a week after July fourth!
So we are wishing for our country a "Happy Canada Day!......Love Bernie and Terry
