Tourism Thursdays : Celebrating #Canada150

Celebrating Canada 150

       This coming Canada Day we are celebrating Canada’s confederation, Canada Day is celebrated on July 1 across the country and marks the anniversary of the enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867. This act united three colonies into a single country called Canada within the British Empire. On July 1 1867, at noon, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and the Province of Canada were proclaimed the Dominion of Canada, with John A. Macdonald its first prime minister. Now, the area of Upper Canada was called Ontario and Lower Canada was called Quebec.
