Unfair to say B.C. Family Day a cynical vote grab
Re: Family Day in B.C. a desperate move (Letters, NewsLeader, Feb. 20)
Cody Tabois expresses skepticism about the chosen date for Family Day, saying it is a desperate move by the Liberals to buy Chinese votes.
However, what he fails to realize is that the Lunar New Year is first of all not only celebrated by Chinese voters, but citizens from many Asian backgrounds, and secondly that the date of the Lunar New Year changes every year in conjunction with the lunar cycle.
So he can feel free to complain about the date of Family Day, but shouldn't blame it on something he's not infromed about.
