Happy Dominion Day... Happy Canada Day

Dominion Day was the name of the holiday commemorating the formation of Canada as a Dominion on 1 July 1867. The holiday was renamed late at night by act of parliament without a quorum on  October 27, 1982.  Thus Dominion Day became Canada Day.

So while we call it Canada Day now... we fondly wish everyone who drops by today a Happy Dominion Day, an ode to tradition. 

Happy Birthday Canada!
