Theresa, is it a statutory holiday in New Brunswick? I thought there were some maritime provinces where it wasn't observed as a statutory holiday? Heck, in any event I'd still recommend you take the Monday and the Friday off!
and yes, mike, it is a statutory holiday in all of canada, isn't it?? i know alot of people are saying that celebrating queen victoria's birthday is wayyy old....but in fact, it is the official day, also, that we recognize queen elizabeth's birthday, too.
today's paper had a story all about how so many maritimers feel it is a holiday that has lost its significance...but i say---any excuse for a holiday works for me!!!!
