I meant a truly Canadian constitution, the British North America Act was an act of the British parliament that resided in the UK. Repatriating the constitution and writing the current one is certainly an event that fits the late twentieth century nation building trend I was talking about, but you're right that I should have said repatriating the constitution rather than getting a constitution, my bad.

Well I suppose you could be asking about the American celebration of their Independence, on July the fourth ?

Or, you could be asking what Canadians will be doing in the next few weeks ?

Personally, I'll be doing some large mouth bass fishing, going to watch my friend race his late model stock car, and travel to Ottawa, to visit some old military friends.

My wife will be attending the 40th anniversary celebrations of the independence of her home land, The Bahamas, on July 14th, at the High Commissioners residence in Ottawa, along with about 500 other Bahamians, who now live in Canada. All ways a great party there.

Is that what you were asking about ?

Jim B

The fourth of July! You know, that day the Yankees celebrate something or other. I think maybe it's Oprah's birthday or something like that.

B.C. day is the first Monday in August so it will be August 5th this year. Labour day the same, first Monday so it's September 2nd this year, Thanksgiving is the third Monday in October so October 14th this year.
You got the last two right though

Heh. Thanks, you're right. I don't know what calendar year I was looking at to get that so screwed up.
