Empire Days 144 years

So another Empire Days has come and gone with very little fanfare. Some of the comments on the DN story of the 19th are very amusing though and worth a read. Three letters at this point have been published including mine in response to Diane Denton's of the 21st. I think it but just a matter of time before there is a change to the naming of the weekend in Nanaimo though it will not come soon enough for me.

Time to rename long weekend celebration

Empire days volunteers deserve more praise

May 24

Gord Fuller
Wanting new name is no dishonour to volunteers

Dave Cutts
Honouring Victoria at least gives us a day off
