Happy Flag Day

Happy Flag Day to all Canadians!  Apparently our flag as we know it was flown for the first time on February 15, 1965.  Four years ago I did know a lot more as I was teaching my grade threes all about Canadian symbols but I forget the finer details!  The radio stations have all been playing "Wavin' Flag" by Somali-Canadian K'naan today.  The song was actually written fto raise funds after the earthquake in Haiti but I guess they can play it today.  I sent my dossier to the Ontario agency today.  Maybe there is significance in that, but if not it is easy to remember the day on which I sent my dossier.
