HapPy 146th CANADA DAY !!

~*~ HapPy 146th ! ~*~
Celebrating CANADA Day 


Canadian Parliament in Ottawa, Canada's capital city.
Founding fathers of Confederation, in 1866, assembled to determine the uniting of the 
Provinces of Canada.
New Brunswick Province's premier, Leonard Tilley, suggested the term 'Dominion' from Psalm 72 

“He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, 
and from the river unto the ends of the earth” 
Psalm 72:8
adopting this verse as their inspiration for the founding of the Dominion of Canada,
birthed July 1st, 1867 .
Canada's motto "He shall have dominion from sea to sea"
and Canada's coat of arms stating 
“A mari usque ad mare” {From sea to sea} ,
all speak to the God inspired heritage on which Canada is established.
via Department of Canadian Heritage
Canada's first prime minister, John A MacDonald, wrote Queen Victoria in explanation of
the name being "a tribute to the principles they earnestly desired to uphold."

We continue that desire in singing our Canadian anthem,
O Canada
"God keep our land, glorious and free"

HapPy Canada Day !!
