For those not keeping up with international affairs, allow us to remind you that today is the national day of Canada. On July 1st, Canada celebrates its British North America Act (or as we know it today, the Constitution Act), which was enacted in 1867. Three colonies were brought together to form the country we now call Canada.
Various celebrities throughout the world, both Canadian and non-Canadian alike, used Twitter today to give proper observance to this day.
Happy Canada Day! hold open a door for someone today and you become an honourary Canadian.

You know it’s quite an important occasion for Canada when even Darth Vader and Professor Snape make cameos:
Happy Canada Day, but if I hear a Nickelback song today, the Death Star might put an end to the celebration.

Happy Canada Day. We couldn't possibly thank you enough for Justin Bieber and Nickelback.
