What is Your Favourite Story About Canada Day?

Happy Canada Day to everyone (and best wishes for the 4th of July for any US friends here)!

I was meant to arrive in Canada on June 30th, 1996 but because of a mix-up with my carry on baggage (which included my passport and visa), it took a little longer to explain to the customs agent that a bright-eyed Englishman with only a bottle of champagne and no identification was legitimately trying to enter his country.

We finally tracked down the passport and papers and I officially came through customs and into the arrivals hall on July 1st, 1996 - so Canada Day always has a special memory for me, even 24 years later!
