This little peice on VOCM sparked my curiosity. For the record it says:
Holiday Bad for Business - Feb 11, 2007
The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says they will not go along with another statutory holiday, especially not without the proper consultation. This province is considering following Saskatchewan and Manitoba's lead in creating a holiday in February to break up the long winter between Christmas and Easter. CFIB president Bradley George says that could be disastrous for business in this province.
It occurred to me as I read it that there are many impediments to business in this province: government wars against investment, demographic out migration and aging, crumbling schools, transportation challenges etc etc etc.

Any number of many many other things could be safely described as "disastrous for business in this province" long before a mere stat holiday in the dead of winter.

Let's keep our eye on the ball.
