Canada Day...The Maple Leaf Forever
Today is Canada Day, when our long time neighbors and allies to the north celebrate their national day..Canada's birthday, if you will.It commemorates the joining of the colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a federation of four provinces on July 1, 1867, called Canada.It's a day when all Canadians celebrate Canada as a free country.
Above Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Canada Day greeting to his fellow citizens, sentiments we Americans applaud and echo.
Long may the True North remain strong and free!
