Happy Canada Day!

I know there are a few Canadians here so I'm just wondering if anyone is doing anything exciting for Canada Day, Eh?

My girlfriend lives outside Vancouver. She told me last night she and her son are going to the drive-in tonight.

Not exactly exciting, but there it is.

Cheers Canada! I know you hate us but we still love you!

Viva la RUSH!!!


Oooooh Ca-na-daaaaaaaa.....


Official English lyrics

O Canada! Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee!


Official French lyrics

Ô Canada! Terre de nos aïeux
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits


Translation of French lyrics

O Canada! Land of our ancestors
Your brow is wreathed with glorious garlands!
As your arm can bear the sword,
It can bear the cross;
Your history is an epic
Of the most brilliant feats.
And your valour, in faith steeped,
Will protect our homes and our rights;
Will protect our homes and our rights.

Didn't they take a vote or something to possibly start including a line about doobies?
