July 1 2017 - Canada - Celebrating 150 Years
Tony Lam's Comments: I tell my daughter she won the birth lottery (as did I) for being born in CANADA. No better country in the world. Canada is a young country at 150 (official) years compared to for example China, at over 3500 years of history.
Trudeau allocated 500 Million for these celebrations.

WARNING: As with all South Park stuff, their is swearing in the song. WARNING.

The CBC would end its daily broadcasts with the Canadian Anthem. These are the best. Very patriotic.
Here is Trudeau's speech on Parliament Hill - July 1 2017. This is where he flubs, and leaves out Alberta.
If you are impatient I clipped it for you. :-)
