It’s Canada Day!

On this day in 1867, Nova Scoita, New Brunswick & the Province of Canada formally united.

While they’re sometimes called the good America, I’m not so foolish as to think they’ve avoided all our mistakes, and haven’t pulled off a few entirely their own, as well. As some of my friends appear to think. And as all things in this world composed of parts, they’re in constant danger of spinning apart. But, you know, given all the difficulties of human gatherings, they’re become one fine country. In many ways an example to the world of how people can come together for the commonweal.

I’m glad they’re our neighbor.

And sometimes providing a pointer to our national conscience.

Happy birthday, Canada!
