We haven't gone downtown for Canada Day for years, but one of our nieces, Claire, wanted to visit and do the full deal. Our dear friend Wendy hosted a brunch in her office overlooking Confederation Square and we saw Kate and what's his name arrive in an open carriage for the ceremonies.
Parliament Hill and the streets were absolutely packed with people, most of whom were dressed in red and white, the colours of our flag. The City looked very festive with Banners and flags everywhere.
