Canada Day is a time of celebration and thanksgiving! Every year cities across the nation colour the streets in their red and white threads, face paint and waving flags. The aroma of street vendors preparing sticky confections and fried foods waft through the air mingling with the sound of cheers and stage performers. It's a time to be grateful in community, especially in 2017, as Canadians commemorate 150 years of Confederation! Communities will join together to celebrate our diversity and the freedom to live as one nation.
