Happy Canada Day!
This year’s celebration of the birth of our country is unlike any Canada Day celebration in our history. For the very first time, we will celebrate Canada Day without, well, an actual celebration.
So folks are doing what they can to keep that celebratory spirit alive in the absence of an actual party.
Mark Strahl, Member of Parliament for Chilliwack-Hope, mailed out a paper flag to his constituents so they could tape it in their front window. He even published a video explaining how to use it.
The Nova Scotia Chronicle Herald published a Canadian Flag for its readers, albeit with an asinine disclaimer that made Lorrie Goldstein shake his head in wonder.
“I thought the flag was supposed to mean the same thing to everyone, that we’re all Canadians. Is that not a thing anymore?”
No, Lorrie, it’s not. Unless you’re a hyphenated Canadian, you’re not Canadian enough to be called Canadian anymore.
So, in the complete absence of common sense we’re overrun with, I thought I would celebrate Canada Day with a mini-pictorial of some of the best social distancing places in Canada, along with a few of our best critters posing for the camera.
