Oh, Canada

Lakeside is flying the Canadian flag today. You can see Canada (from Put in Bay top of the monument). It's 150 years old. It celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.  So not exactly independence day as we think of it in the U.S.A., but more like merger or unification day. Full independence from Britain came in 1982.
