A weekend (and a year) of celebrations across Canada….150 years young…..but is it really?

Oh how I love history! An item on my “to do” list before I pop my clogs is to work towards, and obtain, my BA Mediaeval History. Cambridge University is where I’d love to be (I do love England) but University of St. Michaels College here in Toronto is also an excellent choice and know for their studies in Mediaval history.

July 1st is Canada’s 146th birthday. And unlike Amerka’s Independence Day, ours is a true birthday. It was on that day in 1867 that Prime Minister and Scottish whiskey guzzling champ Sir John A. MacDonald spread his legs and shat out a proclamation declaring the Province of Canada (Quebec and Ontario) plus New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to be, henceforth, bastard siblings.  History would record any number of schools named in his honour.
