Canada Day
The 140th anniversary of Canadian Confederation

The first of July is a special Day in Canada. When I was a boy it was called Dominion Day. Now it is called Canada Day.

On 1 July 1867, the British colonies of Quebec, Ontario, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick joined and The Dominion of Canada was born. Later, the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, and the territories joined.

The video below is a school project made by a student in Canada. It is very funny but not historically accurate. The video's titles have many spelling and grammar mistakes too. Can you find them?

The project got only a B- !! The teacher must be very strict (厳しい) and a rather humourless person (くそまじめな[ユーモアを解さない]人間) because the video is very funny. You can see a more accurate video on:
