Day for a Queen

My older Canadian friends will take the reason for this post immediately I’m sure, as will a few others.

However for those who may not quite get it, or those in the know who want to relive the old days, left click on the photo above.

The word for May 23rd is:
Dominion /dəˈminyən/: [noun]
1.1 Sovereignty or control.
1.2 The territory of a sovereign or government.
Middle English: via Old French from medieval Latin dominio(n- ), from Latin dominium, from dominus ‘lord, master’.

  1. God Save the Queen: Would you believe that in mid 80s Manitoba, the Conservative provincial gov’t tried to revive the singing of the Anthem at the beginning of each school day, just after O Canada? Yes, sir. Imagine moi trying to lead a class of 2nd-graders in an accurate rendition of that most lovely song. The attempt at revitalizing the ancient imperial ritual did not last. Within a few weeks, the requirement was quietly dropped. My 92-year old mother NEVER sung the God Save the Queen while attending her country school in QC in the 30s. However, she clearly remembers learning the words to La Marseillese and singing it with gusto.
