The Canada Day committee kicked the day off in true patriotic style by distributing more than 1,700 miniature Canadian flags to the lawns of more than 1,700 residences. 32 volunteers placed the flags so Morinville would wake up to the colours of the day.

"There's a scurrilous rumour out there that [Winnipeg] is at 3,500 but I want to count the noses," Kelly said. He said it's encouraging that cities across Canada are picking up a made-in-Victoria event. He said Fredericton might get in on the challenge next year.
