Who's got a long weekend this weekend? Monday is a stat holiday in Ontario, but I know this isn't consistent across provinces/territories.

We're in Ontario too so we also have the long weekend. Only half looking forward to it, it means my college boy neighbours will be partying more and louder so less sleep for me.

Louis Riel was the leader of the Metis Rebellion. He was hanged for treason and has become a MB hero.... He was recently found to have been 'not guilty'. It's not a 'popular' name for the holiday.

It's only been the past few years that it's been called LR Day, before that I think it was just Family Day before.

I saw this today and I think it fairly represents Manitoban's feelings towards Louis Riel.... Very mixed.

We are in Ontario too, so had Family Day. DH booked the day off. It was nice to have that extra day with the kids and DH, since he had been away last week.

DH's company works with a lot of federal companies, so they get Remembrance Day off instead So he worked, and had to be away overnight, and probably won't make it home tonight either because of the weather. Lovely! DS and I went to my parents for dinner though so we still spent some of the day with family.
