Sebastian Stolkiner, A young Argentine moved to Canada this year, caused A strong debate on Twitter After comparing and arguing between the two countries Argentina is “there” because of the holidays.
“We have only six holidays a year in Canada (New Year’s, Good Friday, Canada’s, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas). The young man wrote on Twitter.
The comment quickly went viral and thousands of users responded to the teenager’s report. “Are you saying that working 13 days a year (i.e. 5% of working days) is all right? Interesting, ”one of them questioned. Another user said: “It seems like a compelling and lasting relationship that I study today. In that case, Canada has 1 year maternity leave … Is that why the country is like this? ”.
The tweet was filled with comments in which the immigrant’s critique stood out: “You are exiled from Argentina, Canada, what do you judge?” Do not shoot there either ”; “Switzerland has 31 days and Denmark has 17 days.
But at the right time, there was another message that corrected and explained the Internet user’s information. According to the Government of Canada, the total number of holidays is 13: “New Year – Saturday, January 1, 2022; Good Friday – Friday April 15, 2022; Easter Monday – Monday, April 18, 2022; Victoria Day – Monday May 23, 2022; St. John the Baptist Day – Friday, June 24, 2022; Canada Day: Friday, July 1, 2022; Civil Holiday: Monday, August 1, 2022; Labor Day – Monday, September 5, 2022; National Truth and Reconciliation Day – Friday, September 30, 2022; Thanksgiving Day: Monday, October 10, 2022; Memorial Day – Friday, November 11, 2022; Christmas: Sunday, December 25, 2022; Boxing Day – Monday, December 26, 2022.
In another message, Stolkiner, who introduces himself as a student at the University of Toronto, continued: “Where I am, it’s great. [universidad] From the country. This is the 16th in the world. Universities are all public, but if you can not afford it, you do not come. Eligibility Scholarships are available, but not required. They are usually between 30 or 40%, and very few reach almost 100%. I have three qualifying scholarships, but they do not cover 40% of the cost. Now I have to apply again. Since Canada does not ask for SAT, they look at your standards.
After creating his message about the holidays, the young man woke up: “They ask me not to return to Argentina, please. And what did they think? I’m not dumb.
