Canada Day, July 1, 2011

Celebrate !!!

Follow preparations for Canada Day celebrations with the Hill Cam.
We are proud of the nation we have built together over the last 144 years. Since the earliest days of our history, Canada has been a land of promise. We have built a society that celebrates achievement and excellence, while at the same time maintaining a strong respect for human rights. Our participation in Celebrate Canada activities brings us together, strengthens our communities, and helps us understand the significance of the citizenship we all share.

Parliament Hill in Ottawa

We celebrate Canada Day in grand style in the nation’s capital. Every year, tens of thousands of people flock to Parliament Hill to take part in the Canada Day Noon Show with the Governor General, the Prime Minister, and the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages.
This year, we celebrate “Canada: A proud past, a bright future!” and welcome Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to celebrate Canada’s 144th birthday with us on the Hill, as they start their first international tour as a royal couple.
The 2011 show will include a protocol ceremony and a spectacular flyby of CF 18s and Snowbirds. The following great Canadian talents will offer an unforgettable show:

  1. Yeah !!! I am so proud to be a Canadian all the time, but it just wells up in me on this day every year. Now I’m off to dinner with a very good friend and some marketing conversation and laughs. Celebrate, Business Planning and Friendship. What a wonderful country. S>
