The Government's Canada Day 2020 Celebrations Moved Online
Canada Day is normally a big celebration full of free concerts, but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Canadian government has now announced that this year's celebrations will be entirely online.

In a tweet, Canadian Heritage announced that it will "host Canada Day virtually" on July 1. What exactly that will entail isn't yet clear, since the tweet specifies that "details will be announced soon."

Normally, Ottawa hosts a huge concert on Parliament Hill, along with other stages throughout the city. Last year's celebrations included K'naanWilliam Prince, Coeur de pirateTokyo Police ClubSaid the Whaleiskwē, DJ Shub and more.

Presumably, the virtual Canada Day celebration will included a livestream with some Canadian musicians. Stay tuned for updates.
