How come we celebrate Cinco de Mayo but not Canada Day?
We should have Canada Cocktail happy hour AND the day off!
Let's fly the Maple Leaf and sing Oh Canada in French!
Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada), formerly Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), is Canada's national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united two British colonies and a province of the British Empire into a single country called Canada.
Every year on this day, Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally . . .
. . . which means of course I'm heading out for a slab of LaBatts or maybe some Molson . . .
. . . only thing I want to know now is how come none of the Canadian members of Team STORMBRINGER notified me of this auspicious occasion? How come I had to learn this from a Californian refugee living down in Florida . . . I'm only related to half the country up there after all . . .
