Canada Day, a Canadian national holiday, is celebrated on July 1. It marks the anniversary of the unification of Upper and Lower Canada (what are now Ontario and Quebec), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia as the Dominion of Canada. This union was effected by passage on July 1, 1867, of the British North America Act. Formerly known as Dominion Day, the name was changed to Canada Day in 1982 when the constitution was revised. The day is marked throughout Canada by parades, fireworks, and the display of flags. Av.

I'm having a Labatts Blue to celebrate. For we Americans, this is the 139th anniversary of the beginning of the battle of Gettysburg.

I was wondering if somebody would pick up on that. ;)
Link Posted: 7/1/2002 10:48:32 AM EDT
I have always considered myself a North American. How aboot we Canadians and Americans get together and combine the holidays into 1 big week long bash July 1 and July 4 in too two long weekends. I think we could use the time for relaxation and fun on both sides of the border. And while we are at it would you good Americans let us use your greenback or what we Canadians call REAL Money?

Happy Canada Day! OT:There is an interesting story on Canadian snipers in the current Aug 2002 issue of Soldier of Fortune magazine. Titled "Bolt Actions Speaker Louder than Words" by Rob Krott. Do you folks get SOF? From the two paragraphs: "The abilities of Canadian snipers are well known in the international sniping community. Four Canadian Army team won top honors at the U.S. Army Sniper School's first international sniping competition at Fort Benning, Deorgia. Canadian Army snipers have seen limited deployment on recent peacekeeping operations in the Balkans, but in Afghanistan they got a chance to go "live." Two teams of Canadian snipers from the 3rd Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry Battle Group deployed in support of U.S. infantrymen from two U.S. Army light infantry battlions(2nd Battalion, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Div.[Air Assault], and the 1st Battalion, 2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Div), during Operation Anaconda in March 2002. The Snipers are part of the 2rd PPCLI battalion reconnaissance platoon, stationed in Edmonton, Alberta."

July 1st used to be the first day of the new fiscal year for the Federal Government (changed to October 1st in 1978). It's still used as the fiscal year demarcation line by many state governments (including Oklahoma). Thought you might like to know.

It occupies the northern part of North America, and holds the distinction of being the United States' largest national park. It also has its own indigenous population which I have heard has a culture very similar to the Appalachians.

Considering the Queen is only on 2 banknotes, they are doing better than us with our lame ass currency. US notes and coins are in need of a major redesign. Luckily the BEP and Mint think so to. Av.

There's a proud countryman for you. Doesn't know the date when their country asked their masters if they could maybe please be independent after 250 years. A little about Canada day: Did you know.....that before 1982 Canada Day had been known as Dominion Day, First of July, Confederation Day, and July the First? Canada Day celebrates the events that occurred on July 1, 1867, when the British North America Act created the Canadian federal government. The BNA Act proclaimed "one Dominion under the name of Canada," hence the original title of the holiday, "Dominion Day." Dominion Day was officially renamed "Canada Day" by an Act of Parliament on October 27, 1982. [b]This change reflected the policy of successive governments to downplay Canada's colonial origins.[/b]
