    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    Happy Canada Day! Why don't you all celebrate by having a "Canadian Bacon" film festival.

    Why is it today? - excuse the stupidity of not knowing.

    Anyway, Happy Canada day.

    We gave them a parliament to call their own in 1867, and made them a dominion, which they remain this day.

    It used to be called Dominion Day, commemorating Confederation in 1867.

    Like the USA, Canada used to be a collection of little colonies, but after the US civil war, they decied to unite to form a country (more or less so they wouldn't be annexed by the US). Of course, they were mostly Brits, so instead of rebelling against Britain they just politely asked the queen for permission to be given their own parliament.

    So if the Yanks hadn't been so bloody minded and tight fisted, when would they have got a parliament?

    My best guess would be about 1777

    Just think...no guns, free healthcare...and 'uncle' Tony as your leader

    don't be stupid, they already have Tony as their leader, remember they're not quite a country yet...

    Reading Wikipedia , I bumped into this -

    Despite Canada's ambivalent relationship with the United States, Canadians often remain very interested in how Canadians are portrayed in American pop culture and elsewhere. An episode of The Simpsons in which the family travelled to Toronto (for the last 10 minutes) was one of the most-watched TV programs in Canadian history.

    "The essence of philosophy is to ask the eternal question that has no answer" (Aristotel) . "Yes !!!" (me) .
