Quote:7. Why May two-four doesn't always happen on May 24

In 1952 Parliament declared that Victoria Day would be celebrated on the Monday before May 24 every year. As a result of this convention, the long weekend sometimes falls well before May 24. This year, for example, May 24 falls on a Sunday, but due to the parliamentary decree, the long weekend will run from May 16 - May 18.

Quote:16. Women won the right to vote federally on May 24

Legislators gave Canadian-born women over the age of 21 the right to vote in federal elections only on May 24, 1916. Manitoba followed suit that same year, with other provinces giving women the right to vote in 1918 and 1922, with the exception of Quebec. The province didn't give women the vote until 1940.

I'd say straight out fukd up 13.gif

Thankfully some European countries have been a bit more progressive in these matters

Quote:The area that in 1809 became Finland was a group of integral provinces of the Kingdom of Sweden for over 600 years. Thus, women in Finland were allowed to vote during the Swedish Age of Liberty (1718–1771), during which suffrage was granted to tax-paying female members of guilds.[19]

The predecessor state of modern Finland, the Grand Principality of Finland, was part of the Russian Empire from 1809 to 1917 and enjoyed a high degree of autonomy. In 1863, taxpaying women were granted municipal suffrage in the country side, and in 1872, the same reform was given to the cities.[73] The Parliament Act in 1906 established the unicameral parliament of Finland and both women and men won the right to vote and stand for election. Thus, Finnish women became the first in the world to have unrestricted rights both to vote and to stand for parliament. In elections the next year, 19 female MPs, the first ones in the world, were elected. Women have continued to play a central role in the nation's politics ever since. Miina Sillanpää, a key figure in the worker's movement, became the first female minister in 1926.

1993 for a female to become Prime Minister here, and for only a few months.

Quote:Kim Campbell (Progressive Conservative Party of Canada) was the first woman in Canadian history to be Prime Minister, serving in the office from June 25 to November 4, 1993. Before becoming Prime Minister, Ms. Campbell was the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada from 1990 to 1993.
