I just love Canada Day! Maybe it’s because my very first Canada Day was Canada’s 100th birthday and was spent at Expo ‘67. I tell you – that was one thrilling experience!
Of course, I’ve loved every Canada Day since then too. I feel privileged to be able to call Canada my home and I get a bit sentimental when its birthday rolls around.
