HAPPY CANADA DAY, eh? (I know. Sorry.)
So…who is your favorite Canadian celebrity? Michael J. Fox? Wayne Gretzky? Stupid Avril Levigne? Jim Carrey? Bryan Adams? Neil Young? Steve Nash? C’mon! Tell me!
And for those of you (or US, as the case may be) who don’t know the history of Canada Day, here’s a little history lesson!
Canada Day (French: Fête du Canada), formerly Dominion Day (French: Le Jour de la Confédération), is Canada‘s national day, a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act (today called the Constitution Act, 1867), which united two British colonies and a province of the British Empire into a single country called Canada. Canada Day observances take place throughout Canada as well as internationally.
I have a soft spot in my heart for the entire SCTV cast from back in the day…John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Rick Moranis, Catherine O’Hara, Dave Thomas, and of course, Martin Short.
And a bonus Ed Grimley…
