KDOONS Network celebrates Canada Day! July 1st marks the joining of the British North American colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada into a single country called Canada within the British Empire with four provinces (the Province of Canada was split into Ontario and Quebec).

The new KDOONS Theatrical Production "BOOM" features Rick Miller's impressions of several great moments in Canadian history: see a short segment about the Maple Leaf flag and the year 1965, as well as other moments, on HeritageMoment.com

Dominion Day, and later Canada Day, was the date set for a number of important events through the history of the country:

  • the flooding of the Saint Lawrence Seaway (1958)
  • the first colour television transmission in Canada (1966)
  • the inauguration of the Order of Canada (1967)
  • the establishment of "O Canada" as the country's national anthem (1980)
to name a few.

People across the country organize celebrations for Canada Day, usually outdoor events like parades, carnivals, festivals, barbecues, fireworks, and free shows or musical concerts.
So to all our friends in Canada, get outside enjoy the sun, and Happy Canada Day, eh!
