What does it mean ?

You are going to get the day off.
Maybe people won't be so into it ?

FWIW I'm on a community channel with FN people and although they are disgusted with this, they pretty much unanimously don't want to 'cancel' Canada Day.

Who is ‘we’?   And why would ‘we’ do that?

We is Canada.

Victoria has cancelled it.

Apparently Canada is a toxic colonialist entity and shouldn't be celebrated.

Thanks for the context.

You can still get together for a BBQ with your buddies and wave flags.

Personally, I found the celebrations to be a bunch of jingoistic nonsense, so I am having a hard time drumming up any outrage over this.  Having concerts and festivals are nice…. Those should continue.  Of course, the pandemic has put a damper on those anyway.  Fireworks scares the **** out of my cat, so I’m not unhappy that those are gone.

Nothing wrong with having a day to acknowledge Canada, like we do for, say, Boxing Day….  I celebrate Boxing Day at home with a skeet-shooting competition.   Everyone can have a BBQ and reflect with their family and friends what it means to be Canadian.   Enjoy your day off.

So is hunting foxes.

I am keeping the spirit of the holiday and fox hunts alive with the skeet competition.  Maybe it’s more of a pheasant hunting tradition though….

oh….  What was the point of your post?
