I wish all Canadian’s a Happy Dominion Day.
Since today is Canada’s 150th Dominion Day I have put together the following chart highlighting the historical ties between the United Kingdom and Canada. Please feel free to share and distribute it.
Canada – Kanata (Iroquoian) means “Settlement, Village or Land”.
On this day 150 years ago (1st of July 1867) Canada became a Dominion of the British Empire. A Dominion is an “autonomous Community with the British Empire”. In other words a political equal to the United Kingdom equal in status and in no way subordinate in any aspect. Dominions are united by common allegiance to the Crown and freely associated as members of the British Commonwealth of Nations.
Desiderantes Meliorem Patriam
They desire a better country
A Mari Usque Ad Mare
He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth
And for Dominion Day my Canadian Red Ensign is out flying. Another grey sky in Glasgow, Scotland.
