10:59 pm - Canada Day fireworks show~
Canada Day's tomorrow, or more accurately in about an hour, and over on Parliament Hill the fireworks have started already (actually they just finished XDD).  Unfortunately I only managed to take 2 crappy photos of the fireworks before they ended (forgot to take photos at the beginning ^^;;).  Firworks are hard to take photos of since I can't put the flash on and without it the night-time lighting isn't that great, but anyway, these were taken from my window (click on thumbnails for full size):

     

There's another show tomorrow night, I'll try to remember to get more photos.  PARTY TIME IN OTTAWA!!! 

HAPPY 140th BIRTHDAY CANADA!!!!

Forgive my ignorance, but Canada day is celebrating Canada's independence, right??

I actually had to wikipedia search this but apparently Canada Day is to celebrate the day that Canada became a "dominion" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canada_day). Even today, unlike the USA, Canada's not completely independent of Britain as we still pay respects to the queen on certain official events (especially politically) and she still has a representative here in Canada in the form of our governor general

Ahh yes, Australia has the same setup- the Queen is our head of state and a Governor-General represents her (Governor for each state as well)

Of course, the difference being that Australia day is on the landing of the first fleet, not Australia's independence- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia_Day but, I would feel ripped off if it was on that day, since it's already a public holiday (Jan 1st)
