Canada. Save Our Sundays Wants A Day of Rest From Commercialism
Tony Lohnes, who lives in Canada, has been working in retail for a good many years, and says he has seen Sundays taken away from the Retail workers in the USA. In America, there were the
blue laws which protected employees from working on Sundays. In Canadal Lohnes says, it was laws called the Lords Day Act, which prohibited stores from opening on Sundays. "Then came the campaign by the big box stores to convince people that their rights were being violated," Lohnes says, "that owners did not have a choice whether or not to open their business on a Sunday. Our grandfathers fought for us to have that freedom to be able to have a day of rest on Sundays. Mothers and Fathers are losing valuable time with there families, people do not know the difference between Saturday and Sunday. All days are the same. Since we see family as a unit going down hill we decided to start a web site called Save Our Sundays http://saveoursundays.tripod.com . We have been gathering support with our on-line petition. It's time we take back what was ours.Say No to Sunday shopping. TIME FOR A CHANGE!
