It's the Labour Day long weekend and who doesn't love a long weekend?! With your extra time off this weekend though, you may want to spend a few minutes learning a bit of the history of the Labour movement and how this day came into effect. There's a lovely synopsis on the Canada's History website, where it starts off stating, "What evolved into just another summer holiday began as a working class struggle and massive demonstration of solidarity in the streets of Toronto."
Once you've brushed up on your Labour Day history, head over to Waterloo Park this Monday to celebrate the continued work of Labour organizations. The Waterloo Region Labour Council is hosting its annual Labour Day Picnic from noon to 4pm. There will be free food, face painting, games, and more! #365ofgoodWR
