Back To School


It’s hard to believe the Labour Day long Weekend it already upon us.  As the kids get ready for Back to School we wonder where the summer went .

Here is a little history of this long weekend.  Labour Day, the first Monday in September, has been a statutory holiday in Canada since 1894.  Historically, workers marked the day with various activities. These included parades, speeches, games, amateur competitions and picnics. The holiday promoted working-class solidarity and belonging during a time of  industrialization. Since the Second World War, fewer and fewer people have participated in Labour Day activities. Regardless,  it remains a statutory holiday. Many Canadians now spend the Labour Day holiday relaxing and having family time and preparing for the return to school.

Progress Pride Flag


What is the Progress Pride Flag?




Yellow=New Ideas/Sunlight




Black/Brown=People of Color

White/Blue/Pink=Trans Community


Designed in 2018 by Graphic designer Daniel Quasar, Quasar added a five-colored chevron to the classic Rainbow Flag to place a greater emphasis on “inclusion and progression.” Quasar’s Progress Pride Flag added five arrow-shaped lines to the six-colored Rainbow Flag, which is widely recognized as the symbol of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBTQ+) community.

The flag includes black and brown stripes to represent marginalized LGBTQ+ communities of color, along with the colors pink, light blue and white, which are used on the Transgender Pride Flag.
