Celebrating Canada Day
June 29, 2018

Canada Day is a time for friends and family to come together and celebrate all the good our great country has to offer.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, however, July 1 is also Memorial Day — the anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont-Hamel that devastated the Newfoundland Regiment in the First World War.

Proud Newfoundlander and Labradorian and Speaker of the Senate George J. Furey remembers their sacrifice and invites Canadians to stand together to build a better future in this short Canada Day video.
