Doh!  I mis-read...  I thought it said Canada Dry.

Anyway, is this like a big celebration, Canada Day?  I ask, as the typical ignorant American

It is the day of Confederation, our national day. The BNA Act (British North America Act) was signed in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island(oddly enough, that province didn't become a part of Canada until 1873) and came into effect on July 1, 1867. It was decided that July 1st would be Dominion Day, now called Canada Day. It is a day of rejoicing and beer. :chleader:

Moose, loon, and geese, just don't have that ring to them, though.

Aahh, yes, beer..... ;D
If anyone has any moose recipes, you're welcome to post some.
Maybe some cookie recipes? I have a Canadian recipe book from 1873. Interesting recipes but hardly health-conscious.
