“Shame” is a tool to retain the Church’s power, not something to be felt by leadership. The Catholic Church at the institutional level is morally bankrupt.
But fiscally considerate. They are in a crap position, so I suspect their stance is being driven by legal advice .

I have as much sympathy with this issue as anyone but two stats in one month, two weeks before another long weekend - Thanksgiving - is an absurd attack on productivity....


Government offices, schools to close for Sept. 30 holiday, but businesses undecided​


Students won’t be in class and federal and some provincial employees will get a day off, but the new Sept. 30 holiday in honour of National Truth and Reconciliation Day won’t be mandatory in all B.C. workplaces.

Sept. 30 has traditionally been known as Orange Shirt Day in remembrance of Indigenous peoples across the country who suffered in residential schools.

The federal government declared through an act of Parliament in June that Sept. 30 would be a paid day off for employees in the federal public service, including staff at CFB Esquimalt, federal office buildings and the post office, while federally regulated business such as banks will be closed.

Ontario's provincial government has already said it won't be a stat for anything provincially regulated.
