Likely the celebrating was due to the queen being in Ottawa for Canada Day!

OH 35 years ago? Well, you must be Well-seasoned by now. :D Good show!

My Physiotherapist that I had for some time when my Kids were younger while I was on Disability, had also moved here from England. She Loves it here also and wanted her Mom to move here but her Mom was 79 at the time, so I guess it would have been Really difficult for her to move to a whole new country. Plus she'd most likely miss her Friends too much. Anyways, my PT is a Sweet Lady and Good at her job. I was happy to have met her.

Yes, I heard about the Canada Day Celebration in Trafalgar Square on our evening news after the fireworks. I wondered about that and thought probably it was because the Queen was here. That's Cool. Having Good Fun is beneficial for everyone's health.

I like the poster that you added. I know the quote but I hadn't seen that flag with it. Super! :) Well, it was a Wonderful 143rd Birhday for Canadians, if they had a chance to enjoy it.

It's Wonderful to see our Queen visit during Canada's Birthday. Her first stop being Halifax, Nova Scotia. She will travel to many cities in several Provinces. I hope that she and Prince Philip enjoy their stay. God Save The Queen.

I always sing it in French....because that's how I learned it!

O Canada!
Official 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.

O 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.

Please forgive a person , moving to Canada years ago, I had difficulty remembering the words of our Canadian National Anthem ...I made sure, that I always could read lips , when the anthem was sung ! Different with my Mother tongue anthem : the Netherlands !!...I do feel very Canadian regardless .
