Happy 145th!

When I was a kid back in the middle of the last Century we celebrated Dominion Day and proudly waved Union Jacks.  Today we celebrate Canada Day and even more proudly wave our own flag.  Happy Canada Day!
After Friday's little teaser I don't honestly think there was a more Canadian way of celebrating our 145th Birthday but then the CBC played a Stompin' Tom Connors song; well what the hell can be more Canadian than Stompin' Tom?

Happy Canada Day!

01 July - The British North America Act of 1867 takes effect as the Constitution of Canada, creating the Canadian Confederation and the federal dominion of Canada; Sir John A. Macdonald is sworn in as the first Prime Minister of Canada.

We heard Stompin' Tom on CBC One this morning too, LOL! Happy Dominion Day, Willym -- I remember when it was called that too.
