They decorated the sky for Canada's birthday

Yesterday was July 1 and the 148th anniversary of the British North America Act, which combined the three British colonies of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Canada (Upper and Lower Canada becoming Ontario and Quebec, respectively) into the dominion of Canada. The British North America Act also conferred a constitution onto the new nation, establishing the powers of the federal and provincial governments and creating a framework for how new territories might be admitted. The day is marked with celebrations across the country, culminating in fireworks displays. [more inside]

[note the lack of use of the word "'eh"]

On July 1st, 1867, an act creating a federal dominion and establishing the Government of Canada came into effect. While citizens of the world's second largest nation may celebrate by reminiscing over tear-inducing beer commercials, bemoaning the craziness of its mayors, or feeling bad about the tar sands, I posit to you that there is no more Canadian thing on the internet than this video of Chris Hadfield singing a song with the Barenaked Ladies.
