    I feel that the Christian (not just Catholics) Easter weekend deserves more respect and reverence. There other dates to choose from.

    Of course it's newsworthy. It shows how great Christianity really is, and how forgiving, and how gentle it handles this problem. Other religions would be rioting and killing if it was on their holy days or religious holidays, just look at world events in the past few months. The government would never think to do this on a Muslim or other holy day, so why on a Christian one?

    Yes, this is newsworthy. I am surprised that Elections Canada did not consider respect for Christians when making their decison. Many places of employment are closed on Good Friday. In addition, many people travel over Easter to visit family and would not be able to take advantage of these advance polls. I BTW do not have a believe in a God and so this does not impact me directly.

    If you want to opt out for religious reasons, I am sure there are people who would be willing to take your spot. The date isn't going to change to accommodate one religion.
