Riddle Me This Dalton

September 4th, 2007

Is it going to be declared a new holiday, or will you just ban working on the third Monday in February?

And the reasons given by Jim Watson, Minister of Health Promotion (was Minister of Saying Please and Thank-you taken?), for creating Family Day: Statutory holidays are good for the tourism industry. Maybe in August, but in mid-February Jim, don’t call me Dr., Watson thinks I’m, what, heading to the beach in Goderich? Taking the family to Algonquin Park? Good for tourism in the tropics, where no doubt four day weekend packages to the cayman islands will start springing up, but will Orillia really see a boost? Tourism Carolina can boast about 60 degrees and sunny only 12 hours away, but the Minister of Diddley Squat thinks a February holiday will be good for Ontario tourism?

I think not Sherlock.

    Good one, Brian.

    I was thinking the same thing. It might be a good day to catch up on the shovelling, but that’s about it.

    Maybe the DVD rental stores will see a bit more activity.

    What a crock!

    Joanne, there won’t be any need to catch up on shovelling.

    Whether it’s shovelling s##t or shovelling our tax dollars out the window to every special interest group under the sun, the Liberals have been doing enough shovelling lately.

    You know, I don’t mind the idea of the holiday, it’s the opportunism of it that bugs me – and the lame reasoning.

    Trivial Party of Ontario, you mean, but I get what your saying, agree and laughed when I read it.

    I like your list. I was thinking of making a list of everything they have banned, or are pledging to ban, but I’m not sure I remember even half of it.
