From the Pacific Spirit Park on this Canada Day 2022 🇨🇦, with gratitude to all of our health care heroes who have worked tirelessly over the past two years or more so that we can all finally gather together once again, and remembering the lost generations of children from the residential schools who never made it home; but with disappointment and anger that too many of our fellow citizens remain an unworthy rabble that still fails to understand the meaning of the word Freedom. They need only to look to the brave Ukrainian people who are fighting not only for their freedom but for ours also, in their battle against the war criminal sitting in the Kremlin. That is freedom that we must all fight for in whatever way we can until this war is over and Ukraine is free once again. 🇺🇦
We also remember Emily Tuck murdered with so many others on that fateful day in Nova Scotia.
And of course we remember all those whose lives have been taken from us by Covid19 since the beginning of the pandemic.
But as we mourn them all this Canada Day we also say thank you, as we do every day, to all of our frontline heroes who have been there for us since the beginning. It is a Happy Canada Day for so many thanks to each and every one of them.
On this Canada Day we remember Abbigail Cowbrough and her five co-members of the Canadian Armed Forces who went down with their helicopter off the coast of Greece in April.

In celebration of Canada’a 150th birthday
Happy Canada Day
Kitsilano Beach in Vancouver has been featured many times on thechangingpalette. It is a definite muse and constant source of photographic inspiration, from the crisp clear days of Winter, to the glorious hot days of Summer…
…with the wonderful colours of Spring and Fall in between
….and breathtaking skies and sunsets all year round.
Today was a spectacular Canada Day to walk along the beach to Granville Island
…and the perfect way to celebrate this special day
…made even more special for this newly doting Grandpa.
Wishing everyone a very Happy Canada Day.
