Canada Day 2015
There were celebrations at a number of locations around the city
including Queens Park and Yonge-Dundas Square.
The red outline of a maple leaf was then used to make a “living flag” of people wearing red T-shirts and white T-shirts. The crowd waited patiently behind the barricades while the organizers got their act together. Not everyone stayed on the sidelines!
The first part of the “living flag” takes their place in the stem of the maple leaf.

One of the better seats in the house! Watching the acrobatics at Queens Park.
It’s thirsty work being a beaver!
As I stood as part of the white of the Canadian flag, along came John Tory, also on the white team. Just out of the picture (and also in white) was Miss Teenage Toronto. (What? We have a what? I had no idea there was a Miss Teen Toronto). Next time I’ll try harder to get a picture of her but this time I was preoccupied with being part of a flag.
Here’s to the next 148 years!
