Today is Family Day in Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan meanwhile those in Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and BC will suffer through the mid-winter/pre-spring blahs until our next holiday or day off work (Good Friday in April). Even our neighbours to the South have today off in honor of Presidents Day.
You can sign a petition at your local Diary Queen if you’d like to get the attention of our Provincial government and help British Columbians celebrate Family Day as well.
