Canada gear

I was out shopping at a department store today and just happened to see a display of caps (I like caps). I found this:

A Canada cap at a Qatar department store? That in itself was odd but what made it memorable was the year they mentioned on it. 1967.

I'm guessing that the cap was a reject that someone at the textile factory decided to sell at a discount to this department store instead. Canada was established in 1867, not 1967.

Which segues into the fact that Canada is 150 years old this year! If you're thinking of a vacation consider visiting Canada during July 1st (Canada Day). Preparations are underway for all sorts of events to celebrate the country's 150th birthday.

No, I didn't buy the cap.
