Happy Canada Day, Canadians!

The Snowbirds over The Peace Tower, Parliament, Ottawa. Always my favourite part!

I love this photo of PM Pierre Trudeau and his sons. I have fond memories of spending my Canada Day on The Hill, and remember one year (late 70s) I got really sick from sunstroke (lesson learned). St John’s ambulance took me backstage and I was carried past where the Prime Minister was sitting. He got up and asked me if I was ok. When I got to the ambulance back stage, Rene Simard came over and asked if I was ok. PM Trudeau AND Rene Simard? In my delirious state, it seemed like a dream!
