Happy Canada Day! – 2016

Canada Day 2014I hope you are having a great, safe, Canada Day!

Did you know that “Canada Day” used to be called “Dominion Day”? Canada was referred to as “The Dominion of Canada” in the later 19th Century and much fo the 20th Century, just as The United States of America is called “The Republic of The United States of America.”

Of course we also used “The Red Ensign” for our flag into the 1960’s — Just thought I’d throw in that tidbit.

Thanks!
