July 1st was Canada Day, and, as always, VCON volunteers carried the banner at the annual Salmon Festival parade in Steveston. (Richmond).
11.5 (one a small child) people participated. Great fun had by all. Photos by Stacey Ashton.

Stacey with 100% authentic, genuine, and very real Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer (Mountie) for our American friends who may wonder what the real McCoy looks like (as opposed to TV & Movie Mounties). Judging from the shoulder patch this gentleman is high above the rank of Constable.

Close to 1,000 of these VCON 41 flyer/cards were handed out during the parade. Art by Rebecca Tsang.
