Darwin Day should be a stat. Flag Day should just be flag day.

We already have Canada Day and arguably Remembrance Day, since the debate involves honouring our veterans and soldiers as well as celebrating our flag.

A couple other reasons for Darwin Day over Flag Day.

We need a holiday highlighting science and technology.

Flag Day won't always give us a long weekend, but Darwin is dead and won't mind a bit if we celebrate his birthday a few days early or late.

Every year when the topic of flag day comes up, I can only think about King Jean trying to choke the protester. That was the day he was milling about with the masses when confronted by a young protester. Not long after the encounter he had the guy by the throat and the scuffle was on. Later the political cartoons had him sitting in a chair with one of his aids clarifying to him that it was Flag Day and not Flog Day.
Yes it's small things that amuse me........and this is one of them. Just think what a pounding his wife would have put on the guy if she had an Eskimo carving with her.
