Another public sector holiday added to Ontario calendar

If you are a public servant in Ontario, you have added another day off to your calendar year after a labour arbitrator ruled the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation will be recognized as a public sector holiday in the province.

Ontario joins British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador as provinces that allow employees working in the public sector to have Sept. 30 as a paid holiday.

A quick glance at the calendar shows Labour Day, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation and Thanksgiving all in a five-week span.

According to an official estimate, the holiday costs $388.9 million annually in overtime and paid leave for federally regulated employers.

Justin Trudeau booed at North American Indigenous Games

On the world stage, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau does just fine embarrassing himself, whether it’s minding his “manners legs” or showing up late for a panel at the NATO summit.

On his home turf, things are a little different. And while he definitely has his share of detractors and haters, on the flipside he also has fans and admirers. But is the number in the latter groups starting to wane?

Because it’s never a good sign when the leader of a country gets loudly booed at a major event – namely the opening weekend of the North American Indigenous Games, where he was greeted by the groaning chorus as he greeted the audience before making a speech.

Boxer and OnlyFans model Daniella Hemsley proved she could rock a one-two punch – first with her win in an exhibition bout in Ireland, which she quickly followed up with a celebratory flashing that she claims was a wardrobe malfunction.

The question is: how sweaty do breasts have to get before the tassels covering the nipples completely come off and stick to a bra?

Jeopardy! contestants are usually celebrated for their brains, not their beauty, but Anji Nyquist, who won earlier this month, is being lauded for both.

The Minnesota native revealed in a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Instagram that she was flattered by all the compliments and weirded out by those suggesting she do an OnlyFans.

And on Reddit, she was called a “national treasure” and “wife material.”

While she calls the kind words a “confidence boost,” even she doesn’t believe the hype. Smart girl.
