Happy Canada Day weekend! Xbox Live is celebrating the unification of North America's great upper frontier with a free Gold weekend for all Canadians, starting July 2 and ending July 4.

All Gold features are unlocked for Canadian Live members this weekend (that means right now), so get down for your country's birthday with that one game featuring Canadian soldiers. You know that one with the people.... There has to be one, right?

[Thanks to all the Twitter followers who confirmed this one, and to @Aveelo for the picture!]
