A Friendly Canada Day Message To Our Neighbours In The United States

It’s like the Fourth of July ... but better.

Editor's note: This story was originally published in 2014. But we still get questions about Canada Day from our American friends. Enjoy your Canada Day long weekend.

We’re only 150 152 years old.
