Turkey day in Canada eh!

Posted 08 October 2010 - 05:57 PM

Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving. I was wondering what all my fellow Canadain's plans are for Thanksgiving. For me, I'm spending the weekend with my girlfriend. We are having our dinner tomorrow and not Monday so I can travel on Monday with out being tired from turkey.

It is a statutory holiday here. That means you still get paid as long as you work your regular scheduled shifts immediately before and immediately after the holiday.

I have to work Columbus Day, but I get a 5 day weekend for Mrcn Thanksgiving! w00t! Turkey time can't come soon enough! And I'm salaried so my paycheck is the same no matter what I work, when I work or how many holidays are involved.

I'm planning on BBQing a turkey for the first time. Good friend Johnny Walker has agreed to help.

Did I miss something, then? The way I read that was that you get holiday pay *and* get the holiday off if you do the work the day before and the day after the holiday. That seems different to me- in a superior way.

Seriously, did I **** up my interpretation of that or what? I thought that was different.

I don't have to work on Monday and I get paid for a full day's work. How is it different?

Not sure...never done it before. Looks like indirect cooking method, so only half the BBQ on...temperature consistence is a little more tricky, but it should be fun. If I screw it up, I'm ordering Indian for everyone :)
