No Family Day

Getting a LiftI had to work today. Many people in Canada had the day off – Family Day or Louis Riel Day in Manitoba. Since I have no family here in BC, maybe I didn’t deserve the day off.

Luckily the push is on to make Family Day a national holiday. I haven’t heard too much grumbling here in BC though. Which is surprising because, in addition to spending time with your family, Family Day’s main purpose seems to be giving people free-time to set ridiculous records. And now that Guinness World Records is owned by BC billionaire Jim Pattison, maybe he can start lobbying the government to make Family Day a holiday here in BC too.
