This Canada Day we will be staying home having a Barbeque – hopefully enjoying some warm weather. We celebrate Canada Day on July 1st each year to commemorate the July 1, 1867 enactment of the British North America Act.

I thought I would share a few Canadian Flag pictures. I am thankful for the thoughtful person that placed the Canadian flag over this beaver dam! I love a good pun so I am thankful for beaver dams as well. I was going to make the title “Have a Dam Good Canada Day”, but thought better of it.

The beaver has been a symbol of Canada for a long time, but the National Symbol of Canada Act was not passed by Parliament until 1975. “An Act to provide for the recognition of the Beaver (Castor canadensis) as a symbol of the sovereignty of Canada

We snapped this picture while driving to Ottawa last year, and loved the masked Big Apple – a local tourist attraction.

The above picture is not clear at all, as the gentleman driving the pickup truck ahead of us was speeding SOO much, but nevertheless I loved the idea of the Canadian Flag hanging from a hockey stick on the back of a pickup truck.

    1. Whoever waded out into that swamp to plant a Canadian flag in the beaver dam should get an award! (I don’t think it was the beavers)
