I agree Craig!!! How many people know the lyrics to what , in my humble
opinion, should be our national anthem.And it is and always will be DOMINION
DAY !!! For our American friends, 135 years ago, on July 1st, 1867, the
DOMINION of CANADA was formed. The name was changed several years ago to
Canada Day. I guess some people can't seperate a country from a grocery
chain ! ;^) Hope everyone who was flying various national flags during the
world cup, has changed them to the Red Maple Leaf ! ( I would still prefer
the old red ensign but thats a different day!) Regards John
