For those Canuks out there, how many remember this day in 1965 when the Red Ensign came down and the Canadian Flag was hoisted? I was 6 years old in grade one and somehow my teachers were able to instill in us that this was something big and it has stuck to this day. I even remember it wasn't too cold to be standing outside for the ceremony. I don't remember the Engign coming down but sure remember the Maple Leaf going up. I fly one in my yard and will do so to the end!
Here are a few clips to commemorate, the last one is a little longer but gives a good historical account.
