Canada Live, Sept. 19: Who speaks for Canada? Not Harper or Mulcair

With more CPC and NDP cowardice here.

    It’s so true. Angry Steve and Angry Tom look like puppy dogs on this one.

    • Np says:

      Not so much puppies; one doesn’t want to bloody the shark tank and the other genuinely could not give a good god damn what happens in Quebec. While I may personally disagree with their silence and would love to see a politician yell and scream on my behalf, their silence is very understandable. Removing the flag was a petulant move from a petulant leader of a petulant party.

  2. Eric Weiss says:

    Marois took the flag down to provoke outrage. Don’t give it to her. Ignore her. Why fall for the ploy?

    • Warren says:

      Because it matters. Because some things are worth standing up for.

      This is one of them.

    • Aaron E. Steele says:

      I agree with your assessment Eric, the best strategy is to ignore the provocation. The worst strategy is the one proposed by James Halifax. The provincial Liberals and CAQ are doing just fine, pointing out the absurdity and pettiness of removing the flag. None of the federal parties should comment.

    well props to you WK .. defending the flag and most graciously and eloquently at that..
    .. and looking after nuance too.. symbolism and the subtle principals
    You were an exceptional exception … and gawd knows we need more of that attribute..
    in every province, every territory, every nation .. every heart … of Canada

    i voted in an advanced poll last federal election
    the two flags flying over the ballot boxes were the mapleleaf and the stars and stripes
    and currently nobody is speaking for the good of canadians

  5. Philip says:

    Don’t be too hard on Harper, it’s not like he ever had a vision of Canada anyway. It’s tough to talk about something you can’t or won’t understand.
