Main Text
Dominion Day is many things to many people. To the old-timer, it is history; to the child, noise and fun; to the serviceman, marching . . . To Winnipeggers it is all these things and more -- a time when everyone joins to mark Canada's Birthday in his own special way. All the ways and all the peoples add up to just one word -- Canadian.
