Happy Canada Day to everyone in our most excellent nation and to expat hosers all around the world! As we take a day to celebrate everything Canadian, there are two things worth mentioning:
1 – Clara Hughes, the greatest Olympian of all time, rolls into Ottawa on the final day of Clara’s Big Ride. A worthy endeavor by one of the nicest and classiest people in any walk of life, and especially in the sporting world. Or course, the awesomeness of it all is slightly tempered by the fact that in every single picture and video clip from the entire tour, there’s Clara sitting on the back. Come on, Hughes, take a pull!
2 – People who think that Canada Day should be a floating holiday so that it is always on a Monday or Friday can go take a flying fuck at themselves. The holiday is about commemorating the date of the birth of our home and native land, not about getting a fucking long weekend. The country was founded on July 1. That’s when we have the holiday. End of discussion.
