The Traveler… O Canada!

blog-7-3-2017-o-canadaEarlier this week I traveled to New York City by the way of The New York Times dated July 2, 1867 [1] where I found the headline “The Dominion of Canada” with the subhead “Inauguration of the Confederation — A General Holiday — Lord Monck Sworn in — Review of Troops”. “This day has given birth to the political infant, the Dominion of Canada…” This was the announcement of the birth of Canada.

Happy (belated) birthday Canada!
