I will be there… I’m the guitarist for Beaver Syrup. :lick: …a Canadian band with a token american

Please explain.

My first Canada Day outside of Canada - I’m in!

On another note, is there anywhere (in Taipei) I can get my hands on some maple leaf stickers and/or maple candies? I’m teaching on July 1st and want to share the festivities with my students. Or, any other ideas??

Thanks, and see you next weekend!

Explaining lame jokes just makes them worse :s

As for maple candies, good luck. That’s one thing I brought with me to give to some Canadians friends who asked for them. Oddly I had never before seen the things… which is, I suppose, what happens when you grow up in a global city.

Hi Britt, if you can, bring your students with you next Saturday. There will be lots of kid stuff for them to do, bouncy castles, face-painting, contests, etc. And I think they’re planning on giving out stick-on “Canada” tattoos there as well. We have some excellent bands this year, including Matzka! If you haven’t heard of them before, think Aboriginal Reggae…

If you’d like to be notified of more Canada-oriented activities, please feel free to join our Facebook group here. :canada:

Yeah, I thought maple candies would be a long shot :idunno: . I only ever saw them in touristy areas, or being given away around Canada Day.
I’m lucky enough not to teach on weekends :discodance: so I won’t be bringing the students with me. I will write a little note in their communication books though, maybe their parents will be interested.

It sounds like a lot of fun! I’m definitely looking forward to hearing the bands too. See you all next weekend! :canada:

Bumpity bump.

Typical day in Canada

Today’s the day!

The weather is perfect, the beers are chilling, and the bands are going to rock!

Bring your friends, bring your family, or just bring yourself, and join us for a great day of fun!

Sincerely hope you chaps have a fine one.
I shall not attend, nor would I ever. Too many Canuckleheads in one place gives me the Fear & Loathing, most especially the expat variety.
And to think I served for that cuntry, and even took fire.
Smeghead that I be.
“Whet fer, me daddy-o? There’s whiskey in the jiro…”
But hey, that’s just my own bias. At least I am aware of it, and further still, admit it.

Have a great day, and remember these: Vimy, Passchendaele, Dieppe, Ortuna, Juno Beach, Caen, Kapyong, Medak, and Panjwaii. I must have missed a few, but those chaps gave it all, so we could still Keep on Rocking in The Free World.

end of rant.
Rock On!

Hope to see you one day, Back In The World.

To be honest, there were more non Canadians than Canadians. Me and my friends had a great time.

Nice fireworks. Too bad about the music.

I wish every Saturday was Canada Day. I’ve never had so much maple syrup.

Never got to try the poutine… the line :astonished: :astonished:
