Labour Day. YADILOH SDRAWKCAB EHT.
In case you aren’t sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around I wonder why it’s named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day. After all, we know what Labor means. And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.
Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.
Canada’s first Labour Day event was in 1872 wherein at the time, unions were illegal. For over three years the unions had been lobbying its employers for a shorter work week. Inspired by the movement for a nine-hour work day, a strike was triggered after repeatedly being ignored by employers.
The “Nine-Hour Movement,” as it became known, spread to other Canadian cities and a shorter work week became the primary demand of union workers in the years following the strike. A parade was held in support of the strikers carried over into an annual celebration of worker’s rights and was adopted in cities throughout Canada. The parades demonstrated solidarity, with different unions identified by the colorful banners they carried. In 1894, under mounting pressure from the working class, Labour Day was declared a national holiday.
Over time, Labour Day strayed from its origins and evolved into a popular celebration enjoyed by the masses. It became viewed as the last celebration of summer, a time for picnics, barbecues and shopping.
It is all thanks to Canada’s labour pioneers. Their actions laid the foundations for labour movements and helped workers secure the rights and benefits enjoyed today.
As part of dedicating the special day to the workers' efforts, our team is no exception to celebrating and taking part of this rewarding day.
So, to celebrate the month of September and the affection for Labouring, I have a special announcement to make: I will be Labouring, but for a very special reason.
My team and I are addicted to helping you and those you know buy or sell the place they call home. In fact it's a race to help as many as possible so we can GIVE more away.
A CORE philosophy at our company is ‘the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through’. This is why our Mission is to Give Back to those we are deeply in need!!! Serve you, serve those you refer to us and of course, serve a very worthy cause… the great work being done at the Sick Kids Foundation.
This is where we need your help and how you can benefit at the same time…
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. I believe it will somehow come back to you, well beyond a simple tax deduction. A core value at our company is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
Either way, your referrals are in good hands and help us contribute to a good cause.
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth rewarding one. Over the last decade of helping almost a thousand families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.
Each month I do my best to remind you that YOUR referrals help the Sick Kids...
Through our Giving Back program, we are on a mission to raise $50,000 for The Sick Kids Foundation by donating a portion of our income from home sales to them. As you know the Sick Kids Foundation does a tremendous job of helping kids fight through and survive nasty life-threatening diseases like Cancers, Leukemia and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma: stuff that many times rob the life right out of young people. They also lead the way in early diagnosis of autism and recovering from spinal cord injury.
As the area’s leading non-profit organization, they depend on sponsorships and donations to continue their leading-edge care and keep families' expenses to a minimum. So, YOUR REFERRALS REALLY DO HELP THE KIDS…

Why I Support Sick Kids Hospital
I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Sick Kids Foundation. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that non-profit organization.
Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Greater Toronto area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people overcome unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Now, not only being a son but also a father, I take pride in supporting in a way that I can see the good work these people do for the children.
My team rallies around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help the Sick Kids Foundation in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Sick Kids Foundation shares similar commitments to their patients and since their services survive on sponsorships and donations, we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.
