Happy Canada Day 2011

Ahhhhh, life is good in Canada - grab a frosty beverage, have some birthday cake and get ready for some fireworks. Born July 1, 1867 today is the 144th birthday of Confederation. Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Elizabeth Middleton (Kate) are wowing the crowds in our beautiful country as they honeymoon here.

Prime Minister Harper welcomes the royal couple to Canada and says "“On behalf of all Canadians, I am honoured to welcome The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to Canada for their first official Royal Tour. 

“Their Royal Highnesses will experience first-hand the beauty and rich diversity of all regions of our great country.  The time they will spend in the National Capital Region, Quebec, Prince Edward Island, the Northwest Territories and Alberta will showcase that there has never been a more exciting time to be Canadian. 

“With the theme of ‘Moving Forward Together,’ the Tour will provide The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with the opportunity to see first hand how our remarkable past and dynamic and innovative present are laying the foundation for a bright and prosperous future. "

The CN Tower is like Toronto's own Canada Day birthday candle.
