Happy Canada Day!


We Canadians are a hardworking and industrious people much like our national symbol, the Beaver. But we know how to let loose and have fun too. You better believe it!

Skiing is always popular in Canada. And we don't let summer or geography stop us either. Even if the prairies are as flat as a pancake, we know how to put all that grain to good use --


And if we can do winter sports in summer, then why can't we do summer sports in winter? Canadians don't need tropical weather or barrier reefs in order to enjoy snorkeling --


But on Canada Day, our national holiday, we don't exert ourselves doing sports. No, we like nothing better than to just relax on July 1st, get back to nature and barbecue some lovely grub over an open fire . . .


. . . and add to our Molson Muscles by enjoying a nice two-four of barley sandwiches.

Shopping cart grill isn't a bad idea, except for the burning plastic. The smell might work as a Sasquatch repellent though.

So! Canada Day is celebrated on the same day as the beginning of NHL free agency. Coincidence? I think not!

I am still jealous that your national anthem is better than ours.

Go Pens, and Happy Canada Day, eh?
