A petition launched in 2015 to change the date of B.C.'s February statutory holiday is beginning to gain strong support.
The online petition now has close to 20,000 signatures and the support of MLAs David Eby and Andrew Weaver.
"Let's work together to unite Family Day across Canada," said Eby, NDP MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey as part of a promotional video for the movement.
In 2012, the Christy Clark government passed into law the province's Family Day to take place on the second Monday of the month each year.
Those in other provinces have their day off a week later, along with Americans who celebrate George Washington's birthday.
