Canada Day is the celebration of the union of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario into what was the begining of Canada. Canada is still part of the British Commonwealth, along with New Zealand, Australia, etc. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 gave us our "independence". Please brush up on your history!
