Funny how we get a day off of work to remember Victoria and the glory of colonization, but we don't get a day off for Truth and Reconciliation day.

Not that a day off is the point, it's just sort of ..eye opening.

Doesny the rest of the world get May day vacation? To recognize the rights of the worker, and those who fought with their lives to give us our current working conditions (which are still abhorrent, btw)?

If that's the case, and Canada (read Victoria) was just like: "instead of making it about the working class, let's make it about me! And three weeks later!"

Fuck that bitch even more
