Only In Canada, Eh!

Only Canadians would complain about getting a holiday. In 2008, Ontario added a new long weekend to the calender in February and we are still whining about Family Day a year later. The workers complain that there is nothing to do in February so Family Day would have been better in the summer. The employers complain that is the lost productivity costs them money. Small business owners complain about the lost income. There is confusion because Federal civil servants have to work because it is a provincial holiday, so we still got mail delivered today. The holiday even caused conflicts between union and management because the contract specified the number holidays employees were getting.

Yes folks, Canadians are biggest complainers in the world. Now, if only they would complain about serious issues, we might actually get somewhere...
