    Default Canada Day - Work vs not work

    With COVID 19 cancelling most Canada Day events in our area there is a debate going on throughout the area:

    1) Work on Canada Day and take Friday off for a long weekend instead.

    2) Observe Canada Day on the proper Day.

    Thanks for the replies! I think that's the internal decision our office decided on. Some companies are concerned about the public perception of not honouring Canada on Canada day. Its became the whole Christmas lights up before Remembrance Day debate again.

    Unfortunately, not everyone gets Canada Day off anyway so it's hard to be mad at some for working while they are paying a worker for the gas in their car (as an example).

    3 Day weekends are better but if you lived in the world i want to have, every Wednesday would be a day off!


    I took Thursday & Friday off as well using my overtime bank. Happy Cannabis Day, I mean Canada Day!
