Nebraska recognized the state’s friendship and close ties to Canada by observing “Canada Day at the Nebraska State Capitol.” Consul General Martin Loken, Canada’s top diplomat in the U.S. Upper Midwest, was in Lincoln for the observance, which included a resolution by the Legislature, a proclamation by Gov. Dave Heineman and an evening reception. Pictured in the Capitol are (from left) John Cavanaugh of Omaha, honorary consul for Canada; Consul General Loken; and Secretary Gale.
