Canada celebrates 150 years of Nationhood


Canada has marked her 150th anniversary as a country in towns and cities nationwide. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has kicked off celebrations to mark the country's 150th birthday amid heavy security as many citizens braved incessant rains and long delays to reach the main site in the nation's capital. 

An estimated 500,000 people were in Ottawa for the long-anticipated Canada Day festivities, which featured a large outdoor celebration in front of the national Parliament, complete with acrobats, fireworks and musicians including Irish singer Bono and other members of rock band U2.
