 Canadian Red Ensign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1924, the Red Ensign was approved for use on Canadian government buildings outside Canada, and in 1945, the flag was officially approved for use by government buildings inside Canada as well, and once again flew over Parliament.
From 1865 until Canadian Confederation in 1867, the United Province of Canada could also have used a blue ensign, but there is little evidence such a flag was ever used.
In recent years, many far-right and neo-Nazi groups in Canada, particularly those affiliated with Paul Fromm, have attempted to appropriate the Canadian Red Ensign as a symbol of their movement to emphasize what they assert is their adherence to traditional Canadian values.

 Selections from Sir Wilfrid Laurier at conservativeforum.org
He believed that the role of government was not to force action in any one direction but to remove barriers to citizens' efforts to achieve personal and social improvement.
His fifteen years of government were among the most vigorous in Canada's history as Confederation was expanded and immigrants flooded to the land of freedom and opportunity.
Canada has been modest in its history, in my estimation, is only commencing.

 Canada in the Making - Constitutional History
With the passing of the British North America Act in 1867, Canada became a Dominion in the British Commonwealth and John A. Macdonald became Canada's first prime minister.
The French-speaking population of Canada was also sharply divided, a fact that was reflected in the first election after Confederation in 1867.
One of the key events in the development of Canada's national identity and independence was the tragedy of World War I. The dependence of the British on the Dominions (including Newfoundland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa) for men and raw materials gave greater leverage to those governments.

 Imaging Canada   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The student responses delineate tensions between a Canada iconified by the raced and gendered image of a white male Mountie in snowy forests or a frozen tundra that could be a part of the U.S., and the image of a sovereign, multicultural, bilingual Canada.
Within and without Canada the Mountie image has been used to signify the Canadian nation, and as such is one index of who belongs to the nation and who does not.
Obviously, this cultural and economic colonization of Canada differs greatly from what Edward Said describes as ``direct colonialism,'' annexation, and the ``implantation of settlements on distant territory'' that the U.S. was actively pursuing in the Pacific during the same period (Said 1994, 8).

 Hansard Association of Canada -- U.K. 1907 transcipt
I am more familiar with the method of producing the Parliamentary Debates in Canada, and I may say that the results in Canada are even more satisfactory and more remarkable than those obtained in the case of the United States Congress.
They come eight to ten days late; and I imagine that the chief practical use of a record of the debates is for the purpose of answering speeches which were made in debate on the previous day; and of course our present record is quite useless for that purpose.
There is a peculiar complication in Canada, too, which makes it more difficult, which is, that they have a French edition as well; that is issued a little later in the day.

 Jesuits of Upper Canada - Upper Canada Province - A Brief History   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
When the Jesuits did return to Canada, in 1842, it was at the request of Bishop Ignace Bourget of Montreal and, like their predecessors two centuries earlier, they came from France.
In 1907, they were numerous and prosperous enough to constitute the independent Province of Canada, charged with six parishes, four colleges, and some twenty mission stations.
In that year the Province of Canada was divided in two along linguistic lines, with some one hundred and thirty English-speaking members grouped together in the Vice-Province of Upper Canada, while four hundred and twenty-eight French-Canadians constituted the Province of Lower Canada.
