The 150th anniversary of Canada, also known as the 150th anniversary of Confederation and promoted by the Canadian government as Canada 150, occurred today, July 1, 2017 as Canada marks the sesquicentennial anniversary of Canadian Confederation.
Queen Elizabeth II, Canada’s sovereign, offered her best wishes and congratulations on the 150th anniversary of Confederation in a December 31, 2016, recorded message. Her son and heir-apparent, Prince Charles, and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall attended the national celebration in Ottawa today.
In Halifax, there were several activities today to celebrate the day. People trooped out to celebrate and have fun despite the rainy weather.
It has been a beautiful celebration and celebration is still on. Since Canada Day this year is on a Saturday, public holiday has been declared on Monday July 3rd, 2017, so it is going to be a long weekend.
We wish Canada the best as she celebrates 150 years since confederation.
A beautiful land of diversity and inclusion. A country that welcomes all and sundry. A country that has been very kind to many.
Happy birthday Canada, we love you very much and we thank you, we also thank Canadians, wonderful people.
