Labour Day: open or closed?

by Marin Morin

Labour Day weekend is approaching and we find ourselves asking the same question we do every year : what’s open and what’s closed? It’s nice to take advantage of the opportunity to say home and do nothing but sometimes we feel like we’re looking for a little something more. So, to help you make the most of your long weekend, we’re sharing our notes on what’s open and closed on Labour Day weekend.[source: CBC]
