But the massive fireworks displays held in all of Canada’s major cities on July 1 are actually a relatively new phenomenonthey started in 1981. There have been fireworks on Parliament Hill for many decades, but the official cross-Canada fireworks tradition only began in the 1980s. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has been in Canada for two Canada Day celebrations: for Canada’s centennial in 1967 and for Canada’s 143rd birthday in 2010. Her grandson, Prince William, participated in Canada Day celebrations in 2011. 99.99% pure silver. Tony Bianco (revers), Susanna Blunt (obverse). I do leave feedback for everyone.
