Givin' John Graves his props!


Hope you all enjoyed your day off. Now it's time to remember that this "civic" holiday was actually named after someone.

John Graves Simcoe, in 1791, became Upper Canada's first Lieutenant Governor.

He introduced British institutions such as the courts and trial by jury.

He also ended slavery and began to open up the province by building roads and giving land to American settlers.

Good on ya, JG!
