Brother Hal, our hard-working family law associate, is angling for a bit of time off to recover from a steady stream of acrimonious divorce files that have crossed his desk this past winter. Funny how cranky folk get during the monsoons... He has proposed that BC should adopt the US-Mexican custom of celebrating Cinco de Mayo (the "Fifth of May" for all you uni-linguists).
Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the Mexican Army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla. It was, by all accounts, a surprising and unlikely success (much like some of my court battles) and is now celebrated with the imbibing of much cerveza and tequila, as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
We at GreenWay are enthusiastically jumping on Hal's bandwagon. This Province needs more civic holidays! We haven't had a day off since Easter, and BC Day is still weeks away, and we have fewer stat holidays than most of the rest of Canada. Consider that "Family Day" is now celebrated in Ontario. We urge you to write your MLAs about it. They will be happy to receive any constituent mail that doesn't have "Damned HST" in the reference line.
