Happy Canada Day!

Today is Canada Day, {wiki} formerly Dominion Day.
On June 20, 1868, a proclamation signed by the Governor General, Lord Monck, called upon all Her Majesty's loving subjects throughout Canada to join in the celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada on July 1st.

I drink many Caesars. For you Americans who don't know what that is, it's a bloody Mary but with tomato and clam juice. Ah yes Clamato Juice, ddddelicious! If you come here you must try it ;)

Well, I certainly won't be making yesterday's activities a tradition. Getting stuck in traffic in the summer heat in an un-airconditioned car because a bridge was closed by a "police incident" (jumper) wasn't much fun.

Technically, we lost that war to England, since Canada wasn't independent then. But I will say the Canuckistani Navy was a great help in WWII.
