Happy Canada Day! We Canadians tend to be understated about celebrating Canada Day compared to July 4th celebrations south of the border, but we do set off some fireworks.
Each Canada Day I’m reminded of my previous corporate life where I often had to explain to American colleagues who wanted to get a meeting in before July 4th that I wouldn’t meet on July 1st. It often took some effort to explain that our Canada Day is similar to Independence Day and that it matters to us.
Maybe we should consider ourselves citizens of North America and take both days off work. I know I will.
