Its the Sesquicentennial
It's the Sesquicentennial.
150 years ago 4 colonies, two of them already named Canada, lined up nicely and united together as one country, under another country's flag, primarily for defense against rabid Irish American gun nuts on rampages, and created a Federation which they mistakenly called. Confederation, which is THIS nation I call home.
Most expenses will be spared to quietly commemorate this So how do you, dear foreign barbarians, plan to celebrate the Sesquicentennial?
There's no wrong answer. Or language. Or sexual orientation.
I will be slow roasting a beaver over a fire bit burning pure bitumin.

I will wear flannel in solidarity with the bulk of your country, but in honor of my French Canadian friends, I will be making quesadillas.

I was always under the impression that the original meaning of the word "Canada" was "that which is left over".

The celebration I'd planned was nixxed by our border security personnel. Apparently celebrating the sesquicentennial by shooting fireworks at baby seals is frowned upon.
Back to the drawing board.

Listen, I've been to Canada and it ain't that great -- evergreens and metric system. It's all set up to make us rednecks look stupid. I can't even marry my cousin......pass.

Here in the U.S., the first is paper and the 50th is gold. But what's the traditional 150th anniversary gift in Canada?
A: Maple Syrup... just like all the rest.
