Canada Day

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.


  1. Happy Canada Day Michael! I couldn't find a more appropriate place to put this question, so here it is: I've just posted an article on dollar cost averaging and I'd be interested to hear your take on the math I've done there. My conclusion was that DCA has practically no effect at all!

  2. Patrick: I've had a look at your post and I'm still digesting it. When I have something useful to say, I'll post it on your blog.
