The Salford Pals also were pretty much wiped out on this day in 1916: here's a bit about our parish church and its war memorial.

I thought the front page of today's Globe and Mail, excerpting from the front page of the edition published on 1 July 1867 and the words of George Brown therein, nailed the real name of the occasion: Confederation Day.

That quibble of mine aside...

The title of the post asserted the claim. And as I'm not a monarchist, and less comfortable with "Canada Day" as the years pass...

I caught pieces of info on Twitter, but couldn't quite get the whole story. Were there arrests or threats relating to the raising of the tipi? Or perhaps the use of it as anything other than a symbol?

I think the inability to agree what the festival is called -- or even if it's a festival, as distinct from a celebration -- is a very Canadian thing.

Glad the tipi got there after all.
