 A bit of history on the founding of Canada -
Founded on Psalm 72.8
" He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
and from the river 
unto the ends of the earth."  
the Dominion of Canada was formed to unite the provinces into a nation on
July 1st 1867
.

Canada's motto is "He shall have dominion from sea to sea"
referring to God from the Psalm 72 scripture,
repeated again in Latin on the Canadian coat of arms, "From sea to sea".

Sir John A. MacDonald, Canada's first Prime Minister,
wrote an explanation of the name to Queen Victoria, stating it ,
" a tribute to the principles they earnestly desired to uphold."

Declaring the continued dominion of Canada from sea to sea   
as Canadians everywhere participate in celebrating this beautiful nation
founded on God's freedom.

I grew up in Canada and visit there every summer to see family and my home province. A few years ago, my husband and I were in Prince Edward Island on June 30th and got to see all the preparations for Canada Day. Given that this is where Confederation started, one day I'd like to actually be there on Canada Day. Although it might be too crowded on July 1st, I'd also like to someday see Ottawa. The flag created from people is incredible!
