Happy Victoria Day, eh? Where will you be and what will you be doing?
Out here on the left coast, the May 24th weekend is traditionally when we put in all our annual bedding plants or go for the first big camping weekend of the year.
In Victoria it also signals the beginning of the real tourist season, our Victoria Day parade being on most international marching bands marshalled events calendar. I never was in band so I have no idea what that means other than our motels are full of teens who like to wear funny hats and march in file while playing Louie Louie...
So, Canadians...what are you doing to celebrate our monarchist roots? Sitting in the back yard having a barbecue? Watching the Canucks make a run for the Stanley Cup? Going to a park, finally cleaning out the garage or getting an early start on your summer vacation?
It's time to show the Yanks we know how to have a good time here in the great white nord grand blanc
