Help Me Rename Victoria Day

Victoria Day

Here in Canada, today 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 today's holiday Terry Fox day, or Wayne Gretzky day or John Candy day or even Steve Nash Day.

Leave your suggestions in the comments. What Canadian deserves this day more than Queen Victoria?
