Messed up priorities: Sunday money-making is now more important than Canada Day, apparently

30 Jun

So we have Sunday shopping, alas, and have had for some years now.

However, usually on public statutory holidays like Canada Day (which is tomorrow), many businesses close.

But I’ve noticed that this year, oddly enough, many businesses that normally close on holidays (including government-run provincial liquor stores) like Canada Day are actually staying open this year and instead closing on Monday, thus matching what the banks and civil service do (take off Monday if a holiday lands on a Sunday).

But that means that they stay open on the day of the holiday itself – which they otherwise normally take off – and instead close the day after the holiday, which makes no sense.

Apparently commerce is more important to them not only than the Lord’s Day, but even special individual Sundays here and there which happen to also be public holidays, period.

Bow down before Mammon, greedy businesses and government-run liquor stores, etc.

For that is your true god. At least the mask is off this time; I suppose we should be thankful for that at least…

    The ascendancy of consumerism to God status is a symptom of something, isn’t it?

      Is it any wonder that cineplexes are now like huge temples and cathedrals of old, in scale?

      Mammon is now our god…

    Canada Day has just become a day to push multiculturalism, White Genocide, and not just promote it, but brazenly celebrate it.

    Its offensive now. Really offensive.

    Its ‘Canada in Decay’

      Yeah, I skip official remembrances, other than fireworks. And as have remarked here in previous years, prefer to remember Dominion Day.

    I had taken it to be a matter of getting the maximum number of hours off out of every holiday (a full day on Monday as opposed to a partial day on Sunday) but whichever way you interpret it it is certainly getting priorities out of order. The holiday is on July 1st for a reason although, as the name change indicates, the progressive powers have been trying to make us forget that reason.
