Canada 150

Happy Canada Day! Canada is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation today. The British North America Act provided for the unification of the Canadian provinces and created the Dominion of Canada on 1 July 1867.

Lots of celebrations are going on all over the country, the biggest being a huge party on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. Here in my town we celebrate with our annual Strawberry Festival. I'll be there in the park later today, so perhaps some photos tomorrow.
