-happy canada day-

happy first of july! canada is 139 years old today!

heres a little history lesson:

Many years ago, Canada belonged to England and over a period of time, different areas of our country joined together and wanted to form their own government. On July 1, 1867, The British government (under Queen Victoria) approved the British North American act which allowed Canada to become an independent country with its own government. The new nation, which remained loyal to England, was now called the Dominion of Canada. During that time, the new Dominion of Canada only contained four provinces (Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick) with other provinces joining later. As of today, we have 10 provinces and 3 territories.

this time last year, i was at commonwealth stadium celebrating alberta's 100 birthday... with a rockin' FREE concert put on by many talented artists... okay, but i was only there for the BARENAKED LADIES! anyone who knows me knows how much i love bnl... i'm a die hard fan(atic). i felt pretty speshul too when ed and steve hammed it for my camera. why the treat? who cares? i left with over 100, yes, 100 pictures of those two. as i said, i am a fanatic. so here's two. need another 98?
