Happy Canada Day!!!

This is the day celebrated by Canadians worldwide as the anniversary of the enactment of the British North America Act on July 1, 1867. This law of the British Parliament brought together the British colonies of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the Province of Canada to form a self-governing dominion, called Canada.

Other British colonies began joining the new dominion, with the last joining in 1949. This gives Canada territorial range from the Atlantic Ocean at Newfoundland to the Pacific Ocean at British Columbia to the Arctic Ocean at Nunavut. Even the Canadian motto “A Mari Usque Ad Mare” refers to this. “From sea to sea” is a reference to Psalm 72:8 which quoted from the KJV says “He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth”

So if you run into a Canadian today, wish them happy Canada Day!!!!
