How old is Canada anyway?  As we begin the celebration of one hundred and fifty years since the effective date of the Constitution Act 1867 I suggest we should also consider why it is this date that we hold dear when there are so many other important dates in Canadian history and what does commemoration mean for all the peoples who were here before 1867.
