    Loved Canada parades as a kid. My grandfather was in the city pipe band. To this day the sound and pomp of a pipe band makes me remember the excitement we kids had on Canada Day.

    I spent a good 8 years in Alberta, sang "Oh Canada" at my citizenship ceremony and of course every Saturday night with the ice hockey crowd. Great place then, sure it still is.
