Canada Day celebrations this year look like they're going to be online only
What are Canada Day celebrations going to look like this year? It's a tough question to answer right now, but many are speculating that they'll most likely be online.
Montreal announced yesterday that it will be cancelling all festivals, sporting events and public gatherings until July 2—a day after Canada Day on July 1.

The city of Mississauga in Ontario also said that it will be cancelling all city-run events, festivals and celebrations until July 3.
Welp. Canada Day Events are cancelled in my region (Mississauga) and all city events cancelled till July 3. As a matter of fact, all my personal, religious, fun events are cancelled till then. Sigh. 😔😒😪 pic.twitter.com/cxZ9ZleL9c— Aneela (@WHoopsBlogger) April 9, 2020
Like everything else that's been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems likely that virtual celebrations will be in order since everyone in the country is self-isolating indoors.
I guess we can cancel Canada day celebrations, in person, at least?!— john harvey (@pjyankeeedved) April 9, 2020
In Toronto, major events such as Caribana, which occurs in early August, have also been cancelled.
Kinda interesting that nothing about Canada Day has been cancelled yet but caribana did even though it's a full month later.— Andrew Williams (@wheytruthlife) April 9, 2020
Health officials have urged Canadians to stay home, only leaving for essentials and only when absolutely necessary.
Canada Day/July 4th are going to look real weird this year.— Chloe (@kittychix) April 9, 2020
Despite this, it just so happens that Canada Day may have come early in the form of people hanging Canadian flags up across the country in support of healthcare workers.
Honestly, I think we’ll be good by Canada Day. Have a likkle BBQ and drinks and enjoy.. kickoff to a nice quiet summer.— 💋.. Kyle Lowry Stan Account (@Oldsoultee) April 9, 2020
Knowing us Canadians, we'll find a way to make the best of it.
