O Canada

Today is Canada Day.

They are celebrating in the land of John Candy, Nicole de Boer, Cory Doctorow, Nathan Fillion, Matt Frewer, Michael J. Fox, Mike Myers, Scott Pilgrim, Christopher Plummer, Douglas Rain, Shane Rimmer, Saul Rubinek, William Shatner, Jewel Staite and Jane Vassiliadis.

I've never been to Canada, but I'd love to go. I nearly attended a wedding there a year or so ago, but my funds didn't quite stretch far enough.

John Cullum sings US folk song 'This Land Is Your Land' with a distinctly Canadian tilt as Holling Vincour in the Northern Exposure episode Northern Hospitality:



O Canada, make the most of being Canada while you can because there are some less-than-sharp Americans on the way...

This comment isn't spam. My family comes from Canada, so I'm always joking that I'm from Canada. Better yet, I lived for two decades in Maine, and I like to consider that part of Canada. Anyway, I haven't been there yet, but I keep trying to convince myself that I have, and that I am. What's that all aboot?

Dave, some of my favorite actors are Canadian. John Candy, William Shatner, Wolverine.
I agree with china oil painting reproductions "I admire the valuable information you offer in your articles."

Dave said...

china oil painting reproductions, thank you very much and I look forward to hearing from your friends.

Tony Laplume, go Canada. I know I'm not in a position to recommend it, because I haven't visited either, but surely you need to see it.

Maurice Mitchell, thank you.
