Happy Canada Day!


Nelson and Eddi 

Canada became a country in its own right 144 years ago today, on July 1, 1867 with the passage of the Constitution Act. Today is celebrated as Canada Day as a result.  Although I am not Canadian, I think it would be really cool to become one, and will spend most of the day dressed up as a Royal Canadian Mountie on top of my trusted steed Nelson who looks forward to this occasion every year.

Canada has a great national anthem, called O Canada, which is probably recorded more on You Tube than any other. This instrumental version by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra is wonderful


Disneyworld in my home state of Florida has a great 360 degree film called Oh Canada. It was revised in 2007, Martin Short is the narrator. I have never seen the revised version, but found it on You Tube. Advance to 5:40 on the first video to begin the film which is in two parts.
