The Liberal Party of Canada's Province of New Brunswick has lost yesterday's general elections, thus dashing hopes for a new annual provincial public holiday on the third Monday of February.
Earlier this month (2010-09-06), then Prime Minister of New Brunswick, Shawn Graham, had announced that his government, if re-elected, would declare a new annual provincial public holiday, Family Day, on the third Monday of February.
New Brunswick would thus have become the 6th Canadian province to observe a provincial public holiday on the 3rd Monday of February, with long-time observers, Alberta, and Saskatchewan, having been joined by Manitoba (2007-04-28 and 2007-09-26) and Ontario (2007-09-04 and 2007-10-11), 3 years ago, and Prince Edward's Island, the year after (2008-04-06 and 2009-04-24).
