Happy Canada Day (DominionDay)

This is Canada's national celebration day (147th). The Dominion of Canada became official on July 1, 1867 with the enactment of the British North America Act, 1867 . When I was much younger we used to call it Dominion Day. In 1982, the Government of Canada officially changed the name to Canada Day.

Sometimes my wife and I go downtown to wander around Parliament Hill, but today we decided to stay put at home and watch on TV. The temperature is supposed to be in the upper 30s with a higher humidity index, also a chance of severe thunder storms, which is not unusual.

We will probably head out to watch a local fireworks display in Orleans around 9 p.m.
