Canadians are a touch on the wacky side sometimes…hence the little bird and flags on a vintage Mini Cooper. Can't tell you what the significance of the little bird is Our parades incorporate a little bit of a carnival atmosphere sometimes…if only I could have captured the sound of the band playing! We have super heroes that wear the maple leaf in various forms… My Dad came from a village outside Guangzhou and lived in Hong Kong for over 20 years before immigrating to Canada. My Mum arrived in Vancouver in 1968, while my Dad came in 1973. Because of them, I call this incredible country home. Sooo…Happy Birthday Canada!
