Happy National Flag of Canada Day!
Enough of my past blathering about Valentine's Day, now on to important holidays, like Flag Day. No one has actually heard of this holiday, I think there's a parade in Ottawa, but that's about it. (Of course, I no longer live in Canada, it could be all over the news with every home boasting its own flag-raising ceremony...but I doubt it.) If no one else is celebrating, I'm sure that Captain Canuck is!
The day the holiday was established in 1996 shall live on in infamy as the day that our then Prime Minister, Jean Cretien, strangled a protester with his Shawinigan Handshake. We need more World Leaders strangling their constituents, don't you think?
