happy canada day

happy 143rd birthday to canada. canada day celebrations all over canada culminating in the fireworks show to cap it all off. even people decked out in anything red and white. even the cfl season started already with montreal and saskatchewan kicking it of with a pretty good shootout so far in a 33-33 tie game midway in the 4th quarter. toronto at calgary is at 8pm. cheers to canada.
