It’s Canada’s 139th birthday today; happy birthday to us! The best parade that I saw today was the one through Chinatown, where Canadian flags were carried alongside Chinese dragon puppets and tagu drummers. I was glad to be on foot; it must have snarled traffic over the entire west side of downtown. The Festival of Fire fireworks competition kicks off tonight at 10:30 from a barge off Ontario Place, and should be visible from anywhere along the lake.
Happy Canada Day!
