Happy Canada Day!
Until 1982, Canada Day was known as "Dominion Day", the day that celebrates the enactment of the British North American Act (now called the Constitution Act) which united three British Colonies into one empire that it is called "Canada"
Canada became a kingdom in its own right on that date but the British Parliament kept limited rights of political control over the new country that were shed by stages over the years until the last vestiges were surrendered in 1982 when the Constitution Act patriated the Canadian constitution.
While there are no longer any political ties to England, there are still strong emotional ties.
Let's Celebrate Canada Day today... Here are some greetings for you to share with your friends and family.
Happy Birthday Canada!!
