Quiz time! Warning! B.C. residents who get more than ten wrong have to move to Alberta. https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/test-your-provincial-knowledge-by-taking-our-b-c-day-quiz (Afraid I am among those who have to move to Alberta. But, in my defence, there were several sports questions, and I know very little about sports in any province.)
Or, for Canadians who live in other provinces, Happy Whatever-Your Provincial-Government-Has-Decreed-That-This-Particular-Public -Holiday-Commemorates Day.
I know today is a holiday in many Canadian provinces, but I live here, so, Happy B.C. Day!
A statutory holiday since 1996, B.C. Day celebrates the history of British Columbia and provides a holiday in August that the province hitherto lacked. The first Monday in August is also a Civic Holiday in the Northwest Territories and in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia.
