Push on for February long weekend

A backbench politician from Nova Scotia wants to give her province a long weekend in February, joining the chorus of Canadians clamouring for a midwinter break.
Albertans already enjoy such a holiday, and have done so since 1989. The third Monday in February is Family Day in that province, giving many people a statutory holiday “to recognize the values held by the pioneers who built Alberta and the values of home and family.”
