Birthdays And Anniversaries For July 1st + Canada (Dominion) Day
If this is your birthday, congratulations. You share this date with one of the best voices ever in country music. Keith Whitley, born in Sandy Hook, Kentucky, in 1955. Married to Lorrie Morgan in 1986, his rich vocals dot some of the most expressive singles of the late-1980s, although his career is shortened when he dies from alcohol poisoning in 1989.
This Is Canada (Dominion) Day!
Canada Day is a celebration of Canadian nationalism, heritage and pride. Canada became self-governing on July 1st, 1867, with the passage of the British North America Act (BNA Act) in the British Parliament. The holiday was originally known as "Dominion Day". It was changed to Canada Day by the Canadian Parliament on October 27, 1982.
Here's a fun fact. The U.S. and Canada share the largest un-defended border in the world.
