2010 is the 100th anniversay of the Canadian Navy and since I live in the city that is home to Canada's Pacific Fleet I'm excited about some of the festivities that are planned.
On Tuesday the Navy marched downtown and was granted "Freedom of the City" by the mayor. Many of those in uniform had rifles equipped with bayonnets so asking for it really just a moot point.
Anyway, Susan and I went downtown to watch the parade and were quite impressed. Here is some of the video I shot (Youtube restricts uploads to 10 minutes and it took 14 for the parade to pass) that will help you get a perspective of just how many marched - complete with some shots showing just how far the parade stretched.
Youtube is processing it now so if it seems very low in quality
please check back in a little bit.
