2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. It became a self governing nation of Great Britain, July 1, 1867. July 1 is Canada Day …it used to be called Dominion Day. I am glad that I will be in British Columbia during that time and look forward to participating in the celebrations. The biggest celebrations will be in Ottawa, the capital of Canada, but Vancouver Island will have fun too I am sure. Better practice the song, “Oh Canada”.
