Happy whatever holiday you prefer to call it.

So, in Ontario, most people are celebrating “Family Day” today. Personally, I would have preferred they called it Heritage Day or Flag Day, since Feb 15th is the day in 1965 that the current Canadian Flag officially replaced the Red Ensign:

Lester B. Pearson introducing the Maple Leaf as the official flag of Canada.

Personally, I think “Heritage Day” or Flag Day should be made a mandatory federal holiday, rather then all these patchwork civic holidays with their own unique name, but regardless, if you do have a holiday today, have a good one.
