Happy Multiculturism Day!
Thank goodness the city mixes valid observance days with silly, public relations days, because if we had only ‘official gingivitis prevention days’ to make light of, we’d start to wonder about the proclamations issuing forth from City Hall. Oh wait, Multiculturism Day is a Government of Canada proclamation. Perhaps the Feds take on the ‘real’ days, and leave the salad ones to local crats. In any event, this newish day (Officially proclaimed as such in November 2002) warrants a party, and a vast consortium of music and media types are getting together to throw one. It’s an all ages show at the Opera House, and tickets are free. The party is also the official launch of the 411 Initiative for Change as a National organization. We feel a proclamation coming on.
