Calgary has many events around the city celebrating Canada Day. One of the events, happening at a park between Bow River and downtown, is hosting thousands of people.
“Turban, eh?” is one event hosted by the members of the World Sikh Organization of Canada. They offered to tie turbans for people wanting to learn about the religious and cultural meaning of the Sikh head covering. Tejinder Singh Sidhu, the vice president of the Alberta chapter, said it is a way to celebrate Canada Day in the spirit of the Canadian way, which is celebrating diversity and multiculturalism.
Mike Burgess, an immigrant from Britain, is a veteran and Command Service officer for the Royal Canadian Legion. Burgess said July 1 is an extraordinary day because his homeland doesn’t celebrate a national day and Canada Day gives a chance for all people to celebrate the diverse cultures. He said the first time he heard the words ‘Thank you for your service’ was in Canada. Burgess said you hear many accents and languages being spoken in Canada, which shows it is a country full of newcomers. For him, Canada Day is a celebration of what the country really is, a melting pot of people.
