Want an Extra Day's Holiday? (January 23, 2004)

If the Guinness Party of Canada has its way, there will be another legal holiday in Canada. Founded one year ago in January 2003, the GPC is dedicated to making St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) a national holiday in Canada. The party, which has more than 105,000 registered members of legal drinking age, bases its platform on bringing nine provinces in line with Newfoundland, which already celebrates St. Patrick's Day as a holiday.

The party has already inspired a Private Member's bill to be presented to parliament later this year by MP Pat O'Brien. The bill calls for a new mid-winter holiday.

The co-founder of the Guinness party of Canada, Karen Cutaia, said at a news conference today, "I am proud to have led our party since its founding. We've accomplished much together in a very short time."

Ms. Cutaia took the party and its single-plank platform to Parliament in Ottawa on May 28 last year, where she met with more than 30 MPs, Senators and VIPs, including the Irish Ambassador to Canada, Martin Burke, to lobby to make the day a legal holiday.

To promote the concept, the Guinness party of Canada is conducting an in-depth search for a new position – a Minister of Good Times, according to the party's new leader, its other founder, Michele D'Angelo, who just happens to be the Director of On-Premise Channel/Special Events for Diageo Canada – who represent Guinness in Canada.
