As a Canadian, of course I am all in favour of a National Leonard Cohen Day, but I would vastly prefer it to be observed on September 21, the day of his birth. The fact that September 21 would coincide with the International Day of Peace would be quite fitting, I should think.

Exactly my thoughts.
