What's the most appropriate way to celebrate Canada Day?

By getting drunk and watching this movie.

Happy Canada Day my fellow Canadians, my buds and I are celebrating by clearing out 1(probably 2) Timmies of Timbits and seeing who can eat the most.

Canada, I still love you even if you are responsible for Tom Green, Celine Dion , Nickleback and Justin Beiber.

As a Canadian let me just say, I am VERY sorry about Justin Beiber.

Happy Canada Day!

You also gave us Ellen Page so... fair trade. =p

I'm not too fond of this Quebec place I'm living in, but happy Canada day all the same.

Hush Hush, I swear we're the only sane people on the continent.

Not to get into a whole Quebec/Canada war. I will always be a Canadian first and even though sometimes the things about the french language laws sometimes make me some angry because of the stupidity of it.(the latest being not enough french on house hold items such has toasters and ovens) I still love living in Montreal and wouldn't trade it for the world.

I'm so happy that I'm living in Montreal and not some place like Quebec City.

As an ex law student at UdM, I wholeheartedly agree with you. Except for laws concerning the French language, they're great (101 for the win, woohoo!). Still, screw the dry as hell Civil Code system, not nearly as exotic and entertaining as the Common Law. Go ROC lawyers!

...

This thread is definitely full of enthusiasm.

I have a few questions about this. Can you list a few reasons why Harper is bad without resorting to Platitudes? Every time I ask this question I only hear things like "HARPER JUST SUCKS REPUBLICAN COCKS.." which is nonsense, is never supported by evidence, and doesn't actually say anything. I'd like to hear real reasons if possible. I'm not exactly a conservative, I vote for the current party I think will best run our country at the time (for the record, last election, I considered that to be Harper), and I absolutely hate sports politics, which is all I ever see against Harper (that, and blaming him for Provincial matters like Healthcare in Ontario - that's McGuinty, by the way.), aside from the occasional criticism like "I disagree with omnibus bills" which, while understandable, kind of misses the point as the Liberals actually started ones that the Conservatives expanded on once they got their majority. Speaking of which, the fact that they were not a majority for several years gave them more time to expand upon them, so they were not "rushed" like people like to pretend.

I'm not saying he's not devoid of criticism, no party is, but that's kind of my point. People aren't criticizing for actual reasons, they're just hating someone who's actually done a pretty decent job so far because, well, he's on the other sports team isn't he? Also, why is thankful that your area always votes NDP? That didn't do to well with Bob Rae..

I really hate sports politics. Stop believing everything you read. Look at everything, even things that seem unambiguously wrong when you read them, from the other sides perspective. There is almost always a rationale, or at least another side to the story that really changes things. Only then can you truly make a meaningful decision.

Canada Day is like the pre-game party for the 4th of July. It's tame, a bit sad, and you're just counting the seconds till the real thing.

@NlGHTCRAWLER:

Canadians don't need to be bombastic to be proud of who they are :). Just kidding, but not really :D.

July 4th is a pretty awesome party, though, I'll give you that :D.

@SmilingPig: Whats funny about this is that Prince ended up living in Canada in a suburb just north of Toronto. Also in my high school years, I would draw the Samuel L Jackson hair cut from Pulp Fiction onto our beloved Canadian $10 bill. Also This past weekend was the gay pride fest back in Toronto as well as Canada Day. I may live in Japan, but happy pride anyways.

well, in my case it's as simple as my own personal politics being more in line with those of the NDP, and not those of Stephen Harper and the Conservative party. I feel like you're accusing anyone who doesn't vote Conservative of being ignorant, which isn't fair at all.

Personally, I think that the last few Liberal governments were a lot worse than Harper's government. At least you can't accuse Harper of coasting along and just wanting power for the sake of power. I'm so glad the Liberal party lost their shirts in the last election. Maybe now they can actually rethink things and come up with a way to be a viable political party again.

I will admit that saying he is outright shit was probably a little much. I just don't like a lot of the ways he does things. For example, I think lowering the taxes for corporations is a dumb idea and feel it should be raised honestly. I also think the environment is very important and think we should really try an find alternative ways for power and things of that nature. I think the conservative party in general does not seem to care about it. Good on him for not lowering funding for healthcare though. I also feel that just cause we handled the recession pretty well everyone says its because of Harper, when I think part of it is the fact that we were in pretty good shape ahead of time.

I would also like to say that unlike other countries the conservative party seems a hell of a lot more reasonable then most conservative parties.
