4th of July

Does anybody know of any 4th of July events going on in Toronto? Or even what bars are likely to have some American expats in them? :)


It is a little, yeah.

Grow up.

There used to be HUGE July 1 parties in New Mexico for all the displaced Canadians, and not once did I hear a fellow American give them shit for it.

I for one will be bbqing and sitting in my American flag chair all day Sat. We'll break out the Canadian flag chairs tomorrow.

An adult long before you

Cleveland does expat Canuck parties...

So, I suppose it was unreasonable for me to participate in the US presidential vote from Halifax, too, since I'm living in another country.

Feel sorry for the blokes in the Middle East wanting to celebrate their own independence/country birthdays while they're serving our respective countries with that kind of asanine attitude.
Why? I honestly don't understand your reasoning, since it is certainly possible to be a patriot of both countries at once. My choosing to celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day (and, incidentally, both Canadian and American Thanksgivings) takes nothing away from either country. Just because I now live in Canada is no reason to renounce my ties, symbolic or otherwise, to the United States.
Uhhh, what??
