Born out of a need for a national police force to implement the law in Canada’s newly acquired western territories, on May 23 1873, the Parliament of Canada established a central police force who would be able to march across the land. This sector has evolved into the red wearing, horse riding, yellow striped pant loving Royal Canadian Mounted Policemen we know today!
+ Happy Long Weekend Canada! +
Why do we celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday ? Well, this day marks the informal beginning of the summer season here in Canada ! It’s an opportunity to party hard and be around those you love, and celebrate some summer fashion!
Credited as the “Mother of Confederation” we celebrate our independence as a country on this day. So stir up some mixed drinks and spark those fireworks and sparklers. You may not want to show disrespect to the ghost of the ‘Mommy Dearest’ of Canada, or ‘off with your head!‘.
