Dominion Day

Notice that I have shut up this year for Dominion Day. One might know what I think of the splendid anniversary, since it was shallowly renamed “Canada Day,” by reading any of the dozen or more items I wrote for appearance on the 1st of July, over the last few decades. Or go read George Grant’s Lament for a Nation (1965), which still approximates to my point de vue, and will likely approximate to it forever.

And my heart will leap for the Canada into which I was born — a decent, Christian country — et dominabitur a mari usque ad mare, et a flumine usque ad terminos terrae — from the days before it was occupied by aliens from some passing asteroid.

God save the Queen.
