Family Day in B.C. a cynical move
It’s nice to have a holiday in February.
However, have you wondered why the premier of B.C. chose the weekend it did for Family Day, when it would make more sense to have it next weekend like the other provinces do? Many people here that had to work that weekend because it does not coordinate with businesses in Ontario.
The real reason Christy Clark chose the date she did is because of the large block of Chinese voters celebrating the Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year is great for Metro Vancouver and I wish good fortune and happiness to my fellow Canadian and Chinese friends.
Whether right or wrong, Clark’s decision was a desperate move by the premier to garner votes.
