Our normally busy office -- I've seen people there at all hours, even "oh-dark-thirty" -- are quiet today, as it's July 1st, a.k.a. Canada Day. That fact is doubly obvious here in Ottawa, which is not only our base of operations and Canada's capital city, but also the current stop on the post-wedding tour of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, a.k.a. William and Kate. Right now, it's part sunny summer Friday (gotta get down on Friday!), part holiday, part tourist crush/celebrity visit and an all-out excuse to get away from the computer (with the exception of this quick blog post).
Whether you're celebrating Canada's birthday, stretching a 4th of July weekend to four days, just taking a day off or hard at work, we'd like to wish you a safe and happy Canada Day, and as we say up here: "Give 'er!"
