Canada Day, 1st July, 2013


Canada Flag #1

A tribute to all Canadians, my  friends, their  families and many others, those I know through a blog, or an email, or  somewhere else .

This day, the national day of Canada, is to celebrate the anniversary of 1st July, 1867, enactment of the British North American  Act 1867, which united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire .This was originally called Dominion Day ,but was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed.

When I look Northwards, in sky colours like these, I’ll think of you all.

Enjoy your day, celebrate in style, share happiness with all  Canadians on your day.

Quotation of the day,author unknown, for all my distant friends

“There is no distance too far between friends,

for friendship gives wings to your heart”

Greetings from Jean
