Tomorrow, July 1st, will be our country’s 150th anniversary of Confederation. We are a young country, compared to most others. I am blessed to live in our nation’s capital city of Ottawa, the seat of our government. During the summer, a ceremonial event occurs at 10 am each day, from July 7th to August 25th. It is held on Parliament Hill, and includes the Governor General’s Footguards and the Canadian Grenadier Guards as well as regimental band and pipers who perform in the ceremony.
To me, this picture is all about tradition and ceremony. In my eyes, the distinctive scarlet uniform and bearskin hat has always been a symbol of Canada.
