      What are the origins of Canada Day?

    Canada became a separate country from Britain in 1867 and the British North America Act was signed (our constitution). It used to be called Dominion Day.

    However, the Queen is still the Queen of Canada.

      Did you kick some Limey butts like we did or did they just get tired of you?

        It was a compromise I guess since we kept the Queen smile

        The only war we had was the War of 1812 where we kicked some Yankee butt, but I guess we were still British then smile

          I dunno, it was Victoria at that time.  I bet they were glad to get her off the Island occassionally.

    Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends.

    As a side note, my ex and my adult children and their spouses are in Canada today, probably waving the beautiful Maple Leaf flag at the parade they are attending. I've attended many of those myself in years gone by.

    Hello my fellow Canadian hubbers, whether you're new to Canada or if you've always been.  Happy Canada Day!! smile

    And an equally happy upcoming 4th-O-July to all my fellow American hubbers, although I suppose the actual day off is Monday.  Cheers smile

    P.S.  We're just as proud to be Canadians as you are to be Americans.  We just don't shout about it as loudly, I guess. cool
