Thank you ever so much for taking the time to take a stand.
The petition has been submitted to the Senate for review before the Amendment to the public holiday is voted on.
"Government has announced an extra day’s holiday this year as Bermuda transitions from a day off on the Queen’s Birthday to a day off in October to mark National Heroes Day. " (Royal Gazette, 10/04/2008)
Clearly the removal of our sovereign's birthday as a public holiday is inexcusable. No discredit to Dame Lois; she was an integral part of securing equality for all parts of our population, facing adversity along most of the way.
There are ways of honouring her that do not involve a blatant insult to Her Majesty.
We, the undersigned, call on the Government of Bermuda to retain the birthday of Her Majesty Elizabeth II as a public holiday, in its current form.
