Celebrating Our Flag
It is my flag. It is your flag. It is our flag. It is recognized around the world, and all Canadians stand a little bit straighter when we see it raised to celebrate the achievements – sport and other – of our fellow Canadians. It is raised proudly in many foreign lands each morning to start the day off for our brave men and women in uniform who are fighting to protect the values and rights we enjoy in this great country. So why is the anniversary of our flags creation being ignored by the current government? Maybe it is a way to save money. Or perhaps, it is because there is no blue in the flag; red is the colour of, you know, the other guys. Could the government actually think that it is not worth celebrating the flag because it was created when Lester Pearson was the Prime Minister. No. Couldn’t be. Or could it? Oh Canada!
