Here in Canada, Monday is Victoria Day. This holiday is in celebration of Queen Victoria's Birthday.
Hold on just a moment. We get a holiday devoted to some Queen of Britain who's been dead for over a hundred years? Surely we can do better than that. Where is our Canadian pride?
I suggest we re-brand Monday's holiday Terry Fox day, or Wayne Gretzky day or John Candy day or even Don Cherry Day.
We are no longer Britain's bitch. It's time we stop acting like it. Just don't call me early on Monday morning. I'm celebrating the Sovereign's birthday.
