POLITICS AS USUAL: STOP THE PRESSES
I've heard the arguments: productivity will be down, how do we pay for it, everyone will just go shopping, etc. Every province already observes Nov 11th as a holiday except Ontario and Quebec.
Forthwith are my solutions:
- Exchange the useless August holiday for November 11th.
- Use some of the $9B surplus the feds have been hiding to fund something worthwhile (like tax cuts to offset the productivity concerns).
- Make it a stat holiday so nothing can be open. Like Christmas Day.
- Use more of that aforementioned surplus to fund veteran programs and memorial ceremonies. And hey, it would give Adrienne a chance to blow more of our money on rememberance day tours across the country!
