Dominion Day, and later Canada Day, was the date set for a number of important events through the history of the country:
- the flooding of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (1958)
- the first colour television transmission in Canada (1966)
- the inauguration of the Order of Canada (1967)
- the establishment of "O Canada" as the country's national anthem (1980)
People across the country organize celebrations for Canada Day, usually outdoor events like parades, carnivals, festivals, barbecues, fireworks, and free shows or musical concerts.
So to all our friends in Canada, get outside enjoy the sun, and Happy Canada Day!
