A Federal Holiday in Canada celebrating the Legalization of Unions and the labour movement.
Marking the end of the summer holidays for most, with school starting on the Tuesday.
The days have become noticeably shorter with the darkness of night creeping in earlier each day. Canadian Geese are practicing for their flight south.
