    I learned of Canada Day the hard way. I went up to Grand Forks, BC for the day some years back and found everything closed! It reminded me of the time I went to Mexico on Election Day, no booze sales, which makes no sense because if there is any reason to drink, politicians will drive one to it!

      It’s a funny holiday used to be a long weekend, first Mon after July 1st
      but some long winded politicians managed to get it changed to be on the actual day of July 1st
      Hey a day off is better than none would rather it be a long weekend but

          Your right.
          Prior to 1982 it was Dominion Day
          Full marks to @fjmorris who paid attention in history class
          I had to goggle this, I forgot about Dominion Day

          smokin fool I think it was political correctness of the early 80's that led to the movement to rename it to Canada Day. These days I think even Canada Day is considered controversial, just as there are folks running around burning the world down and saying we should not be celebrating Independence Day here in the United States on Saturday.

          Everyone wanting to burn and tear down things and erase history is doomed to repeat it, unfortunately.

        In Canada’s case we were always a member or the British Commonwealth
        In 1982 Canada repatriated its constitution from Britain and we became a sovereign nation
        Its funny that it seems we kinda follow
        American history except we’re 200 years behind you
        Certainly was a political movement behind this by both nationalists and monarchists.
        Now its the Quebecois and western separatists that are flexing....
        ....but I digress....
        whats everyone smoking today?!?!?!

              Hope you all had a great day!

              Incidentally, Independence Day is one of the few holidays still moves around, so we have that in common too. This year I (and many) get the 3rd off.

                I just learned I get the fourth off, which is a weekend day for me anyway, so no three day weekend for me.
