Ontarians can expect a new holiday in February if the Liberals are re-elected next month.
Premier Dalton McGuinty has proposed a new holiday called Family Day aimed at recognizing the importance of Ontario families by giving them more time to spend with their loved ones.
He says adding Family Day to the calendar will give Ontario workers a total of nine long weekends per year.
Finance Minister Sorbara, states the obvious:
"I think this is going to be very, very welcome in Ontario."
Rumor has it John Tory will counter by making Mar 8 "Free Booze Day" at all LCBO locations.
