Happy Canada Day. Our staunchest friends in North America and originators of the finest sport known to mankind.

I note this years celebrations are to focus on the War of 1812. Excellent way to rub in the fact that you gave the yanks a kicking :)

Happy Canada day from Alberta from a Taffnadian. Might have a couple of pints if Keiths later to celebrate.

L.A. Kings win 2012 Stanley Cup! Holy Shit! :eek:mg; The California Canuks were just a little bit better than the New Jersey ones. ;-)

As for the Canucks priding themselves on giving Uncle Sam a kicking during the War of 1812 it wasn't that one-sided. There's a gentleman named Jackson that was pleased to give GEN Pankenham a hot reception at Chalmette Plantation. ;-) So much for Peninsular War experience. :p

Happy Canada Day/Dominion Day to my friends in the True North!

Just got an email of my Godchild in Collingwood, ON with a maple leaf flag painted on her forehead.

As anthems have been linked above I am linking the Vice-Regal Anthem in honour of your Governor General, a man I like and admire.

May you all remain strong and free!

Well said sir.

As to the finest sport, I think that is Ice Hockey but your reference is unclear as you could be referring to Lacrosse or basketball instead as Lacrosse originated among members of the First Nations in Canada and Basketball was invented by Naismith when he was at McGill in Montreal.

As to burning the White House, I wonder if they could come back and do it again. And throw in the Capitol for good measure, politicians waste oxygen and contribute to global warming with each breath they take.

Sorry, Rucker, but when I think of Jefferson's opinion that the "The acquisition of Canada this year, as far as the neighborhood of Quebec, will be a mere matter of marching", I still can't help but smile. ;-)

I live about 25 miles east of one of the most shameful exploits of the US Army (and that's the considered opinion of American historians, I might add). Crysler's Farm Battle of Crysler's Farm - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Too bad it was fought on Nov. 11th, as it is a landmark battle in Canada's history.

And a happy 4th of July to you, in case you think I'm extracting the urine too much. ;-)

O Canada the land of the free moose. Looking forward to the gun salute at the Citadel here in Halifax and then some nice fireworks.

Awesome day here just south of Calgary - not even flooding can dampen the festivities. Happy Birthday to my new homeland.

George Lumsden Totally agree. I'm "English" Canadian & I like this song, but I can't LOVE it. In my eyes, the buttering up of the ancestral country is so ridiculously Canadian. It's also weird that those Anglo-Canadians who say this pro-British song should be our national anthem are the very same hypocrites that insist that Quebec must stay part of Canada

This is a beautiful anthem, but I find it annoying that so many people seem to be so Britishly loyal. I'm a Canadian living in the UK, and we're so different to the British. From general attitudes to cultural practices we're completely different. It would be way too antiquated to be singing about something so long ago that barely has an image now. The Maple Leaf Flag IS the Canadian Flag. All this stupid Union Jack garbage isn't. Canada is Canada because of what it is today. It wouldn't be on the map as it is today had it remained under Britain's rule entirely. If you want to see all this British loyal garbage go live in the UK.
