HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CANADA
Today marks the 145th observance of Canada Day, celebrating the unification of several colonies into the single nation of Canada within the British Empire. The last remnants of British Parliamentary control were surrendered in 1982 with the patriation of the Canadian Constitution. Cheers to our good friend to the north, with whom we share the world's longest undefended border, as well as Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Long may our friendship thrive.
