Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to Canadians everywhere as we celebrate the birth of our nation in 1867. I hope you enjoy the parades, BBQs and fireworks. Merv. (Unfortunately, 24,000 Toronto civic workers have been on strike for 10 days now so there will be no traditional fireworks in Toronto, Canada's largest city. What a shame!)
