Canada Day/ Sky Watch

Today, July 1, is Canada Day

Parades, fireworks, and family get-togethers today! Canada Day celebrates the anniversary of the federation of Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in 1867.  So permit me to enthusiastically sing:

O Canada!
Our home and native land,
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
