The Canada 150 Photo Contest winners! Congratulations!
On July 1, 2017 the country of Canada was 150 years old. We asked readers to send us a photo and statement about how they celebrated the event.

Even though our family dog, Bentley, doesn’t look very excited trust me he enjoyed the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday with a full dog bowl and loved it.
I celebrated with the bus driver, and people on the bus! When I rode the bus, all the passengers wore red clothes and the driver wore a temporary tattoo of Canada’s flag.
To me, the Canadian flag represents people who are united and free.
Coca-Cola celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary by organizing boxes of COKE into the shape of a maple leaf. I saw this at a supermarket and it reminds me that I am so fortunate to live in Canada.
Two elderly citizens and my husband are enjoying Canada’s 150th Birthday.
