    Canada Day, once Dominion Day, the the day we celebrate the beginning of Canada as a country, going back to 1867. It began with Upper Canada, Lower Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. This was the date the British North America Act united the provinces to form the Dominion of Canada.

    That is a brief explanation.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    And to you as well, James..assuming your name to be James.

    Wife comes home from England to-day. I pick her and one daughter up at ten tonight, so I should run into some fireworks on the drive.

    Cheers, mate,

    Jim

    Thanks [​IMG] y'all.

    Hey Jim, no my real name ain't James. I just like the nickname. Maybe people can guess my real name. I hope your wife and daughter have a safe flight home. Enjoy the fireworks. [​IMG]

    LOL you can look at it like that. It's about the only day that many Canadians are patriotic. I had a good day...went to the Tigers baseball game tonight. Saw a great game and some fireworks. You have a great 4th of July.

    Not quite the same as Independance day, it is more like Federation day, a day where the nation became unified, Aussies have a similar holiday on Jan 26 called Australia Day, yet both Canada and Australia remain in the Commonwealth. [​IMG]
