To Our Canadian Posters: Happy New Brunswick Day!

I love the Maritime Provences!



Too bad the Quebecois aren't celebrating.

Thats cool, but New Brunswick is no Newfoundland.

Patiently waiting for ANA, MISA and DANI to start playing tennis again.

Ontario isn't celebrating either, but everybody knows we don't care about anybody except ourselves. I'm not sure what Quebec's excuse is

Oh, it's a holiday. Maybe because of New Brunswick day, but I guanentee you that if I walked outside and asked the first 20 people I saw why today was a holiday, they'd say something along the lines of "because it's August long weekend".

No, it's Caribana-long-weekend holiday (in Toronto). Just kidding.
Actually, it's Simcoe day, a Summer-break civic holiday. Here is Mr John Graves Simcoe, circa 1793.

I honestly don't know. Our offices in Toronto and Saint John called Friday to let us know they'd be off for "New Brunswick Day".

It's a holiday across the country but it is under provincial jurisdiction.

So as I was saying, we have a holiday, but nobody really knows or cares why. We just know that it's a holiday and I got paid to stay in bed today.
