Happy Dominon Day, Canada!

July 1 is Canada Day (or Dominion Day as old school Canadians, ashamed of what Trudeau did to the country, call it).  Here is a list of why I grimace when I think of what has happened to The True North, once Strong and Free:
  • The Canadian Broadcast Corporation
  • The Rouge in Canadian Rules Football
  • Sheila Copps
  • Socialist Medical Care
  • Gordon Lightfoot
  • The Canadian Radio and Television Commission
  • The Goods and Services Tax
  • Lotteries
  • Video Lottery Terminals
  • Tobacco Taxes
  • Curling
  • Human Rights Commission
  • The Amalgamation of the Canadian Military
  • Provincial Sales Taxes
  • Canadian Content Rules
  • French on cereal boxes
  • Policeman in Saskatchewan who can conjugate French verbs.
  • Bryan Adams
  • Celine Dion
I shouldn't actually include Curling and the Rouge (the one point given for missed field goals) on the list but I want it to be partially tongue and cheek.
I will spend the day not working.  If it stays sunny, as it is now, I will be taking Tony out on the electric bike.  We will be proudly wearing our Canadian t-shirts and underwear.
And of course, I will be taking Dominion Day photos and making special Dominion Day WTU's.
