Crowds were thinner on Parliament Hill today for the annual Canada Day Celebrations because of rain in the Ottawa area.

Governor General David Johnston inspected an honour guard, and there was a loud 21-gun salute.
Prime Minister Harper said Canada Day is a day to celebrate the diversity of people who make the country great.
