I almost missed it!

Happy Canada Day everyone! Happy 141st birthday Canada.
Happy 150th birthday BC.
Happy 250th Birthday Nova Scotia.
And most of all… Happy 400th… yes Four Hundredth Birthday to Quebec City.
The Founding City of Canada!

Champlain landed at “Point of Quebec” and started building on July 3rd, 1608… so festivities in Quebec City will reach their peak on Thursday.

It was a wonderful day… but then really, it is always a wonderful day to be Canadian.

To steal the favourite words of a former Prime Minister.

Vive Le Canada!

  1. Tnx for the info the other day…saw 38.44C I was a volunteer at the BC bike race that blew thru town running a comms station at the Multiplex… Was outside… near pavement on 3 sides… I know I was in 40+ degrees because of all the black pavement around me. Damn near died of the heat, it was brutal. Never knew how hot it really was till I saw your website..
