On July 1 we're celebrating Canada Day!
Being in Canada, Kidoons Network is especially proud to join in the Canada Day celebrations! In history, this day marks the joining of the British North American colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a single country called Canada within the British Empire.
Dominion Day, and later Canada Day, was the date set for a number of important events through the history of the country:
- the flooding of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (1958)
- the first colour television transmission in Canada (1966)
- the inauguration of the Order of Canada (1967)
- the establishment of "O Canada" as the country's national anthem (1980)
People across the country organize celebrations for Canada Day, usually outdoor events like parades, carnivals, festivals, barbecues, fireworks, and free shows or musical concerts.
So to all our friends in Canada, get outside enjoy the sun, and Happy Canada Day!
