Happy St. Patrick’s Day

In Ontario we observe StPatrick’s Day on March 17, we do more than remember StPatrick; we celebrate the Irish presence in Canadian history. … The Great Famine of the 1840s drove approximately two million people out of Ireland, hundreds of thousands of them to British North America.
