The Canada Act, passed in 1982 by the British Parliament at the
To change the Constitution using the general formula, the change needs to be approved by 1) the federal Parliament, 2) the Senate, and 3) a minimum number of provincial legislatures. There must be at least seven provinces that approve the change, representing at least 50% of Canada's population.
July 1st used to be called Dominion Day. This was changed to Canada Day after 1982.
So what did we do today to celebrate Canada Day? Went shopping for shoes in Krivii Rih. Our taxi driver, Vitalik, collected us at about 9:00 am and we picked up Masha and Lina. I needed shoes badly and am hard to fit. They don't carry size 49 (14) in many stores for some reason. Vitalik knew where the big Sport Master store was and that is where we went. Two pairs of summer running shoes, a pair of winter running shoes and a pair of sandels later. . .
None of their clothes fit me but they did have clothes Lina's size, so Lina and Tanya looked at them while Masha and I looked at bicycles and other sporting goods. I found bike horns, with squeezy bulbs. Took the biggest they had and went quietly up behind Tanya and honked it in her ear. Old geezers get bored easily and can always find something to do.
The little strip mall also had a Gloria Jeans so we went in there to look for clothes for Masha. No chairs. I cleared a spot on a display bench and sat down to read. That lasted until the manager caught me. She sent me back to the dressing rooms where they had little seats. Somehow being the lone male in a female dressing room area just didn't seem right. I went outside.
I got my McDonald's fix and we were home by 3:00.
