Happy Sesquicentennial, Canada !

Dominion Day, July 1, 1867 — Brexit, 1982
Now, it’s Canada Day !

(What? Yeah, even Quebec.)
Full disclosure: me ol’ Dad and his ancestors were Canadians, well, after some of ‘em were asked to leave Britain for reasons not entirely clear in family lore — prob’ly involved disagreements over the ownership of some cattle.

    Yah, happy 37/150, eh? 150 years ago the last British redcoat got bored and took a boat back to England. But it wasn’t until 1980 the Canadian hosers got around to taking the Union Jack off their flag replacing it with the symbol for sticky, sweet tree sap.
