  1. Well there we are in Wellington’s top Canada Parade and you might say we did (drove) it in style. I had the MX5 all cleaned and waxed sporting 4 Canadian Flags along with the Bose 900 system playing Canada Is and Oh Canada coming out of 8 speakers……oooohhhhhhh Last but not least, the back LCD program displayed the following “Happy Canada Day From The Residents On Wellington On The Lake”. Both Judy and I were passing out to the young ones, Canada Day bracelets. In general, it was a super fantastic day. Last time the MX5 was in a parade was during The Ottawa Senators Parade where we drove in front of team captain, Alfie Affredson.
