True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

Bloody Turdoh changed the whole meaning of the day. Dominion Day actually had some historic significance so obviously it had to be changed to a meaningless Canada Day. Happy Dominion Day, from sea to sea to sea.

In days of yore, from Britain's shore
Wolfe, the dauntless hero, came
And planted firm Britania's flag
On Canada's fair domain.
There may it wave, our boast and pride
And join in love together
The thistle, shamrock, rose entwine
The maple leaf forever.

Chorus
The maple leaf, our emblem dear
The maple leaf forever
God save our King and heaven bless
The maple leaf forever.

At Queenston Heights and Lundy's Lane
Our brave fathers side by side
For freedom, homes and loved ones dear
Firmly stood and nobly died
And those dear rights which they maintained
We swear to yield them never
Our watchword ever more shall be
The maple leaf forever.

Our fair Dominion now extends
From Cape Race to Nootka Sound
May peace forever be our lot
And plenteous store abound.
And may those ties of love be ours
Which discord cannot sever
And flourish green o'er freedom's home
The maple leaf forever.

Happy birthday Ca-na-da

Here's why I love Canada:

"Canadians oppose Iraq war, poll finds"

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20080630.POLL30/TPStory/TPNational/Politics/


"Canadians are solidly opposed to the war in Iraq and most Americans now believe that our decision not to join that prolonged and unpopular conflict was a good one, a new poll suggests ... Opposition to the war is huge in Canada, where 82 per cent of respondents said the invasion was the wrong decision."





GOD BLESS CANADA!!!

Does this song bring back any memories? It was the official Centennial song (1967).

Bobby Jimby and his clairinet? I remember being one of those kids singing the song and skipping along behind the pied piper! Ca-na-da - One little two little three Canadians...

How uncool for an eleven-year-old....
