To all of our members, and to all of the workers still out there on the front lines of this pandemic: thank you. We sincerely hope you can get at least some time off over the Victoria Day weekend – goodness knows you deserve it.
This is our second Victoria Day of the pandemic. It’s been a rough couple of years.
But as a holiday marking the beginning of summer, Victoria Day is all about optimism for sunnier days ahead. And as vaccination rates rise and infection rates drop, we have a lot to be optimistic about.
We must stay vigilant, but we are going to get through this pandemic.
So again, we hope you get a chance to take a break this Victoria Day weekend. And to the front-line heroes who can’t: thank you.
