O Canada, again and again... and again

Clive Quigley plans to celebrate Canada Day in a rather unique fashion.

“On Canada Day I will be celebrating my 50th year in a country that has been so good to my family,” he said in an email to The Record. “To mark the occasion I will be singing O Canada 50 times.

“Please come join me when you see me. I will be playing a red 50-year-old guitar or a ukulele bought on Fifth street in 1950. Time to throw our heads back and sing our song.”

Quigley will also be entered into the Canada Day Parade. He is scheduled to be the final entry in the parade.
