Starting next year it will be moved to the third Monday in February, which makes more sense as it's more likely to have better weather.

I've always felt that Halloween should be on the last Friday or Saturday in October. I know it isn't an official holiday, but it would help the Bar Industry...Office themed parties...parents wouldn't have to go to work the next day...kids could sleep in after a late night of trick or treating... etc.

Can't. It's like Fat Tuesday.

Makes sense.

We need to move these things around as global warming changes the climate.

It would probably just add to the fatalities from drunkenness!

Yep, not sure of the need for it. Most families have about 104 days a year beside about 10 stats. already that they are free to do what they like with. The country is already $half a trillion in debt, so I'm not just sure how they can finance any more holidays. (I suppose it's not really fair for me to criticise as I already have the day off)

I think the point was to have it line up with other February holidays across the country and President's Day in the US.

It's a provincial holiday not a national one.

The government does not pay for holidays except for the civil service.

This holiday has nothing to do with climate.

Holidays are good for the economy. People spent money when on holidays.

Although, the tourism industry was against this change. When BC gets a day off in February, the ski slopes fill up. When the US gets the next Monday off, the slopes fill up again.

We are displeased with the expression "Family Day"

We prefer the expression "Italian Social Society Day"



Capiche?

Like with many things there's a difference between the political reason for something and the sensible reason for it!

What percentage of the population are regular skiers? Probably fewer than one!
