It's Canada day and Freddy is dressed up as a Mountie. Up on Signal Hill in St. John's, he's all set for the Sunrise Ceremony. But Freddy's baby sister is cranky from getting up so early and Freddy and his friend George set off on a wild race to make her stop crying. But then something amazing happens, something Freddy never expected. Join Freddy the small Mountie and discover his incredible Canada Day adventure.
