为加拿大干杯 Cheers to Canada!

加拿大国庆

今天,加拿大迎来了国庆日。它是为了纪念1867年《英属北美条约》的通过,该条约将加拿大联邦、新不伦瑞克省和新斯科舍省这三个英属殖民地合并为加拿大自治国。在1982年之前,联邦成立纪念日一直被称为 "多米尼克日",直到加拿大完全独立于英国议会,庆祝活动才正式更名为 "加拿大日"。

加拿大是陆地面积仅次于俄罗斯的第二大国,每个角落都有丰富的自然宝藏,如大熊雨林,西北航道,哥伦比亚冰原或海达瓜伊群岛,其中80%的土地无人居住。眺望科尔伍德天然港口的宜人水域,可以看到图片中的菲斯加德灯塔。这座塔是加拿大西海岸的第一座灯塔,建于1860年,位于不列颠哥伦比亚省埃斯奎莫尔特港的费斯加德上。

Canada Day

Today, Canada celebrates its national day. It commemorates the passing of the Constitution Act of 1867, which joined three British colonies, the Province of Canada (later Quebec and Ontario), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, to become the self-governing country of Canada.

Canada is the second-largest country by landmass after Russia. Eighty percent of its land is unoccupied and every corner abounds in natural treasures—like the Great Bear Rainforest, the Northwest Passage, the Columbia Icefield or the Haida Gwaii archipelago. Celebrations including parades, fireworks, and other patriotic festivities will be held across this huge country today. Among those hosting events will be the Fisgard Lighthouse, pictured on our homepage looking out over Esquimalt Harbor in Colwood, British Columbia. The tower was the first lighthouse on the west coast of Canada, built on Fisgard Island in 1860.
