Happy Canada Day!

It's July 1st - and you know what that means. Why it's Canada Day of course!

Celebrated 3 days before America's Independence Day, Canada Day marks Canada's independence - but not really. It marks the joining of the British colonies of joining of the British colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces (the Province of Canada being divided, in the process, into Ontario and Quebec) on July 1, 1867. But the British Parliament still kept limited rights over this new federation.

So thanks to Wikipedia - I've just shown that Canada Day is a complete sham! It's just a feeble attempt by Canada to celebrate something around the same time as America. Even worse, it gives Celine Dion an excuse to throw a concert.
