CANADA is Celebrating 150 Years As A Sovereign Nation!!

Our Centennial Flame was first lit on Jan 1st, 1967 to celebrate 100 years of Confederation.

Yes, it was July 1st, 1867 when the “Fathers of Confederation” proclaimed Canada as an independent and free Nation. 

Grant and Linda McRae, celebrating in Digby Nova Scotia prompted me to send along this link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WAYhT5f0i-I&list=PLwVAOSKVpESlRwe5tQ0lFha94BPTJ9nvF
