After two years of political pandemonium, the famous Canada Day was held again in 2022. This time after 155 years.
It was raining in Glen Wiiliams. Still, a lot of people showed up. And it was once again a great, Canadian and unique celebration.
Unfortunately, in recent years, there has been a growing movement calling for the abolition of Canada Day.
It’s really an incomprehensible manipulation, but there are suggestions in the media to rename the national holiday to supposedly avoid offending some people. Some argue that Canadian citizens should not be proud of their country because of various issues in the past or present.
Fortunately, most people feel differently and are proud of their Canadian homeland. And they show it by their participation.
Thanks to all of you!
Canada Day is the national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of Canadian Confederation which occurred on July 1, 1867, with the passing of the British North America Act, 1867 where the three separate colonies of the United Canadas, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick were united into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.
Originally called Dominion Day, the holiday was renamed in 1982 when the Canadian Constitution was patriated by the Canada Act 1982.
