Hello, and welcome to my yearly B.C. Day rant.
British Columbia joined Canada on July 20, 1871. When is B.C. Day? The first Monday in August. Say what?
I grant that the colony of British Columbia was created August 2, 1858, but it was only about one-half the size of the modern province.
I do not recall any big hoopla in 2008 for the 150th anniversary of the colony. There was big fuss in 1971 for the centennial of the province.
While Canada Day is a statutory holiday that is always on July 1st, B.C. Day is not always on August 2nd.
But Happy B.C. Day however misdated it is.
