And so it begins...

Canada Day (July 1st, aka in the old days as Dominion Day for those Brits who are interested in colonial history) is just around the corner. Although indigenous peoples have been here for thousands of years, followed in the 1500's by European settlers, Canada has only been an official autonomous country for 150 years, hence the huge celebrations this year.

Between thunderstorms, I went out to see what was happening in the runup to Canada Day.
