Today is July 1st, which is Canada Day, Canada’s national holiday!
On July 1, 1867, the British North America Act was signed, uniting three colonies into one country under the British Empire and called it Canada. Canada’s been my home for nearly 40 years, and I’m now an importer of Canadian-ness in Florida (a.k.a. “Canada South”). From a Canadian expat to my Canadian friends and family all over the world, Happy Canada Day!
