It’s a special day today for Canadians. Canada is 150 years old. This day marks the occasion when the Dominion of Canada was formed, on July 1, 1867, from (the separate colonies of the British Empire) Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. In truth, Canada has been around for much longer, especially its native peoples, but the day gives us a calendar point to celebrate this great country.

I’m proud to be a part of this beautiful, diverse and respectful country.

Happy Birthday, Canada. From Sea to Sea to Sea.
