One o' th' nice things about workin' in Vancouver be that on th' first Monday in August, we get t' celebrate B.C. Day by takin' th' day off.
Did British Columbia earn independence somehow? No. Be th' province particularly noble or triumphant? Not really. But th' first weekend in August here does tend t' be glorious, and th' government had th' good sense t' recognize that, and we plan t' spend Monday recognizin' that as well.
See ye back here Tuesday, Aug. 5. (We be workin' Friday, August 1, but we may sound a little wistful when we answer th' phone.)
