|Nelson and Eddi on Canada Day|
Today is Canada Day. 146 years ago, Canada became an independent country (kind of, the process was not completed until 1982 with the passage of the Canada Act in British Parliament). Canadians celebrate this day with fireworks, and I imagine barbecues, and are probably most happy they are not part of their powerful neighbor to the south, The United States, but have preserved their unique and glorious bilingual national identity. I would be if I were Canadian.
I will be putting on a fireworks show at DaPier at 5:00 PM SLT tonight at a special Canada Day party to celebrate this great day. SLURL to the event:
I am running two versions of Oh Canada! which is one of the world's great national anthems, if not the best.
