July 1st is the Canada Day. I sure am proud to be a Canadian and will be celebrating this day by wearing my red and white t-shirt. For those who might not know what this day is about, allow me to give you a quick scoop. Canada Day is celebrated on July 1st of every year. Canadians celebrate this day to commemorate the separation from British rule in 1868 and the creation of ‘Dominion of Canada.’ The basis of Canada’s celebration is founded on the formation of a new country and a union of provinces. In 1982 ‘Dominion of Canada Day’ changed to Canada Day.
Happy Canada Day!
