A very warm Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north.
Canada Day is observed tomorrow, on July 1. Canada Day celebrates the creation of the Canadian nation in 1867. I am privileged to live just a few miles from the Canadian border and get to enjoy much of what Canada has to offer. Canada and the USA share the longest undefended border in the world.
Many know that Michael J. Fox, Shania Twain, Sarah McLachlan, Mike Myers, Kack Kerouac and Wayne Gretzky are Canadian. But, did you know that the Northern Sounds forum is also owned and administered by Canadians? And that we have many members on the forum from Canada.
O Canada! Our home and native land! True patriot love in all thy sons command. With glowing hearts we see thee rise, The True North strong and free! From far and wide, O Canada, We stand on guard for thee. God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux, Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux! Car ton bras sait porter l'épée, Il sait porter la croix! Ton histoire est une épopée Des plus brillants exploits. Et ta valeur, de foi trempée, Protégera nos foyers et nos droits, Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
