The Globe has chosen these stories to illustrate the importance of Easter in our nation.
Caption The Globe is reporting that Canada’s April Easter egg hunts came to an end when the Liberal government was ousted in 2019, and Canada is now in the midst of its first federal election since that time.
“What the egg means to us is not only our family’s, but our community’s,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie, who chairs the Easter Committee of Greater Victoria.
“Easter has been around for over 5,000 years and this is a celebration of that.”
The government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the Easter eggs were the result of a “robust debate” in the House of Commons over whether to allow them.
It was decided the day before the election that the government would allow the eggs to go forward.
In addition to the city of Victoria, which has an Easter egg drive, about 30 other communities have Easter egg drives, as well as Victoria, B.C., Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Regina.
A spokesperson for the mayor said he has been told that the mayor has been assured that the eggs are safe.
The city of Vancouver has a yearly Easter egg-hunt, with about 200 people expected to attend, said Coun.
Geoff Meggs, who was the acting mayor at the time.
Megg is the only mayor in the city to have an Easter Egg drive.
Victoria has an annual Easter egg event, with a total of about 3,000 people expected at the event.
In 2017, the city had about 1,000 visitors and 10 egg hunts.
A spokesperson for Metro Vancouver said the mayor’s office has been in contact with the city about the Easter Easter egg operation, and that it is safe to assume the eggs will continue.
The spokesperson said the eggs, which are typically a size of about one-quarter the size of a human hand, were donated by the United Way of Greater Vancouver.
“We have no further comment on this,” she said.
In the United States, Easter eggs are considered an event that can be celebrated at any time of year.
However, it’s not uncommon for egg hunts to run into logistical problems in the summer, when temperatures can be hot and people have to travel a lot for work.
A recent study by the University of Southern California found that people who have been egg hunts for several years are more likely to be obese, less healthy and less likely to have children than those who are just trying to enjoy the Easter holidays.
In many cases, people don’t know where to put their eggs or are not sure where they want them.
