Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day celebrates the creation of the dominion of Canada through the British North America Act on July 1, 1867, uniting three British territories — the Province of Canada (southern Ontario and southern Quebec), Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick — into a federation.

On June 20, 1868, a proclamation signed by the Governor General, Lord Monck, called upon all Her Majesty's loving subjects throughout Canada to join in the celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada on July 1st.

Happy Canada Day to you, Teena! I was actually born in the USA so I celebrate BOTH holidays now that I'm living in Canada. In other words, it's one big-ass long weekend for me!

Hope yours is fun and safe too!
