July 1st has always been a special day for me. Fifty years ago today I left the United States and applied for Landed Immigrant Status in Canada.

It was a special day in Canada, it was the 100th anniversary of Confederation.
My suspicions proved correct…. there was only a handful of security personnel on duty and I was asked only two questions…
“How long do you plan on staying in Canada?”…. to which I responded “Forever!”*
