The Canadian labour movement can justly claim the title of originator of Labour Day. Peter J. McGuire, one of the founders of the American Federation
of Labour has traditionally been known as the 'Father of Labour Day'. Historical evidence indicates that McGuire obtained his idea for the
establishment of an annual demonstration and public holiday from the Canadian trade unionist.
Earliest records show that the Toronto Trades Assembly, perhaps the original central labour body in Canada, organized the first North American
'workingman's demonstration' of any significance for April 15,1872.
Well, in the completely self serving and myopic view of those championing political correctness regarding Christmas, I give you your next target -
You see, I'm a bum, a tramp, a social outcast who abhors work or the thought of it. I find the term Labour Day utterly and completely offensive to
who and what I am - LAZY! In fact I'm so lazy I adopted kids!
Please change Labour Day to another name so as not to offend us less-than-ambitious people of this world!
Thank you, I'm going to take a nap now.
