Letter to the Editor: Not a 'made up' holiday

Dear Editor:
The June 26 editorial refers to the July 1st holiday as a made up holiday; I would disagree since it commemorates the signing of the BNA Act July 1, 1867. This united 3 colonies to create the Dominion of Canada. A made up holiday would be something like Family Day which is an arbitrary date chosen to celebrate a concept.
