Ask Jeeves is the one major search engine engine to post a special logo for Canada Day. Since a bit over 2% of our readers are from Canada (I am sure its more but the stats can't be a 100%), I thought I note this.

The Smart Answer for Canada Day is very useful. A guy like me who knows very little about things outside of New York, can easily become very cultured in a matter of minutes. No I am not proud, I blame the education department of the state of New York.

On June 20, 1868, a proclamation signed by the Governor General, Lord Monck, called upon all Her Majesty's loving subjects throughout Canada to join in the celebration of the anniversary of the formation of the union of the British North America provinces in a federation under the name of Canada on July 1st.
