    'God keep our land glorious and free... O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.' Canada, a land of great natural beauty and beautiful, warm, welcoming people. On Canada Day, reach out to all your friends, family members and acquaintances and wish them a day filled with fun and laughter. Say Vive Le Canada !

    Canada Day,
    Canadian national holiday, celebrated on July 1st. It marks the anniversary of the unification of Upper and Lower Canada (what are now Ontario and Quebec), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia as the Dominion of Canada. This union was effected by passage on July 1, 1867, of the British North America Act. Formerly known as Dominion Day, the name was changed to Canada Day in 1982 when the constitution was revised. The day is marked throughout Canada by parades, fireworks, and the display of flags.

    For once, Sue & I agree on something!! [​IMG]

    Happy Canada Day to all of my friends in our wonderful neighbor, friend and ally to the north! Two great nations sharing a long and peaceful common border.


    English:

    O Canada!
    Our home and native land!
    True patriot love in all thy sons command.
    With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
    The True North strong and free!
    From far and wide, O Canada,
    We stand on guard for thee.
    God keep our land glorious and free!
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


    Français:

    Ô Canada!
    Terre de nos aïeux,
    Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
    Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
    Il sait porter la croix!
    Ton histoire est une épopée
    Des plus brillants exploits.
    Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
    Protégera nos foyers et nos droits,
    Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

    And now, sing them if you know them, (and I don't) all the verses to The Maple Leaf Forever.

    Happy Canada Day!!
    (A day late, I wasn't available yesterday)

    From a former Canadian resident, and father of 2 boys born in Winnipeg (1979, 1982).
    We loved our time there, and still maintain contact with some friends in Winnipeg, and in Halifax, N.S.
