Canada To Get New Nationwide Summer Holiday

Time to celebrate!
Canada To Get New Nationwide Summer Holiday

Get excited Canada because we have some great news. Come Christmas we might have a brand new Canadian Holiday to celebrate. 

A Saskatchewan MP presented a bill to make June 21st, which is already known as "National Indigenous Peoples Day", into a national statutory holiday.

That means the holiday would be celebrated nationwide and it would also be a PAID day off, which I'm sure we could all use. 

The bill already passed a second reading in October and the debate will take place on December 8.
