At 2 pm, you will hear the sound of the Stratford Police Pipes and Drums Band as they lead Stratford’s swans on their annual parade to the Avon River.
 
Folks line the streets to catch a glimpse of our feathered friends as they duck and waddle along the way.  Don’t be late!  The parade starts at the winter quarters on Morenz Drive and continues along Lakeside Drive before entering the river at North Street.

Canada background and overview
A land of vast distances and rich natural resources, Canada became a self-governing dominion in 1867 while retaining ties to the British crown. Economically and technologically the nation has developed in parallel with the US, its neighbor to the south across an unfortified border. Canada's paramount political problem is meeting public demands for quality improvements in health care and education services after a decade of budget cuts. Canada also faces questions about integrity in government following revelations regarding a corruption scandal in the federal government that has helped revive the fortunes of separatists in predominantly francophone Quebec.
