Happy Canada Day! Our home, on native land.

As james_nicoll puts it:

147 years ago, beset by crazed Irish terrorists and aware of the malevolent, avaricious northward gaze of the Americans, the British North American colonies of Ontario, Quebec, formerly of the United Province of Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island joined into one nation. With time most of the northern half of the continent was added to civilization, with only Alaska remaining in shadow.

Having been born in conferences rather the dark blood rites of the Americans, the Canadian government tends to take a leisurely approach to implementing change and so it wasn't until 1980 that we settled on a formal national anthem.
