Happy Victoria Day, and thank you to all those working it


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.

In solidarity,

Warren (Smokey) Thomas
President, OPSEU/SEFPO
