B.C. will now be joining Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Prince Edward Island in having a statutory holiday in February.

I can’t figure out who writer Randy O’Donnell votes for in a provincial election, because the ‘Godfather’ of labour, Jim Sinclair, has been after the provincial government for four years to bring a statutory holiday into the month of February.

Face it, it is happening, enjoy life and always remember that the race in life is a long one, but it is only with yourself and remember that your chances are only at half mast, so is everyone else’s.

If by chance he does vote NDP, just imagine the 100 per cent turnaround in his comments if in fact it was the NDP that brought in the new holiday.

Remember that the B.C. Day holiday in August was brought in by an NDP government.
