    You Canucks and your holidays. Between Boxing Day, Queen Victoria Day, Thanksgiving in the fall, Easter Monday etc... you sure do get the time off. I guess we've got more to be jealous of then good beer and slightly better/much cheaper medical care. Eh?

    Family Day = President's day. You know, the day we used to get off.

    Here in Alberta it was brought in by the then Premier after his son committed suicide.

    As a federal employee I don't get it off, depends on who you are employed by whether or not it is a stat holiday.
