Government hosts most unCanadian celebration on Canada’s 150th

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Canadian governments have decided that the way to throw a party for our country’s 150th birthday is to spend their way into hosting the most unCanadian celebration ever. 

The Liberals allotted half a billion dollars, in part, to bring in half of Irish band U2.

The Ontario Liberals doled out hundreds of thousands to rent a giant, and allegedly, counterfeit duck and Calgary brought in a giant red ball with part of the $700K the Liberals gave the city for celebrations.

What does this all have to do with Canada?

Nothing much. But as I explain in my video, I think the worst thing to come out of this spending spree is the fancy logo design.

I can’t begin to imagine the cost of branding and executing this new logo that came as a result of a design competition the Conservatives held to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday celebration.

Not only was this project a waste of taxpayer money, but the idea that we need to change or alter traditional symbols that represent us as a nation, is a slippery slope that may begin with minor changes to a holiday, but what comes next?

I don’t like it when the government overspends and wastes taxpayer dollars for un-Canadian celebrations on the nation’s birthday, and modifying our national symbols is about as un-Canadian as you can get.

Wore my oil stained ‘Republic of Western Canada’ farmers cap. Particularly appropriate considering Baby Doc decided that Alberta was not part of Canada in his 150 “speech”.

More thumbs up than down for the cap.

Actually I am quite relieved that I didn’t have to listen to Trudeau’s wife sing. The Indian drums are great, however her voice would have ruined my Sunday.

Keith Barnes; Now that was strange.

Sadly, you’re right Jimmy Reece… “It can’t be 1950 forever”… That was when hundreds of thousands of post war immigrants stepped onto Canadian soil at Pier 21 and adopted Canadian values, learned to speak English or French, respected the law, learned Canadian history to gain their citizenship six years later, did not go on welfare stepping ashore, did not try to impose their “beliefs” on the majority of Canadians, went to school without expecting special “prayer spaces”, and worked to gain places of responsibility in Canadian society without bitching and running to the media for imagined “wrongs”… I WAS ONE OF THEM!..So Fuck You Jimmy Reece!… Happy Dominion Day Canada!…

I wonder if standing 7 hours in line to get to Parliament Hill is Canadian. It felt more like lining up for powdered milk and rice in a third world country.

“When others build walls, you open doors” – obvious reference to Trump building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants, criminals and drug smugglers. Trudeau’s open door solution is to let in illegal immigrants, many who have been declared convicted criminals, and are escaping the tyrannical regime in the US.

“When others divide, your arms are open wide” – not so obvious reference to Trump and other leaders who oppose the global vision of diversity and inclusivity. Trudeau solution is to invite the worst possible filthy human beings into the country and not have the guts to tell us how many or what kind of diseases they are harbouring.

“Where you lead, others will follow” – Trudeau leading in what exactly. Stupidity? Destruction of a country? Treason? The other leaders who follow this treasonous behaviour are traitors. Merkel and Macron top the list.

Bono is just another global flunky like Trudeau who does not practice what he preaches but hypocritically poses for a few photos and makes some self righteous speeches to make himself feel good and show that he is helping people. Bono doesn’t live in a no go zone or muslim infested neighbourhood that puts ordinary people in danger. Anybody that follows Trudeau on anything is benefitting personally and financially the librano way, with tax payer money.

That new flag contains all of the gay pride colours and their exact shade. Don’t tell me Jimmy Reece that Harper had anything to do with that. It has Trudeau’s dirty fingerprints all over it.

Only 25,000 people showed up for the event… What an absolute waste of Canadian taxpayers dollars.
If 25,000 people is any kind of indication of the support the JT now has in the Ottawa area he should not be considering politics for future employment.!
I think JT is losing his shine and as the old saying goes…
“you just can’t polish a turd”.

Is this really the kind of thing that keeps you up at night, Holly?

For fuck sake.

First of all, members of U2 are playing ONE song. The rest are Canadian artists.

Secondly, country and state logos are changed all the fucking time for special occasions or celebrations. Don’t worry, the Canadian flag won’t be replaced.

Some people just want to bitch about change on any level. I am sorry, it can’t be 1950 forever.

I spent the day ignoring the globalist BS and went fishing – picked up a growler of fresh local craft pale Ale and had trout on the BBQ under a red ensign – not a globalist or scolding Marxist to be seen in my back yard.

All I got from today was – Canadians – evil, colonizers, oppressors of gentle, environment loving natives. Native beer bellied feathered dancers for 20 agonizing minutes. And where in hell did they dig up Buffy St Marie!! ENOUGH OF THE FREAKING NATIVES!!!!! My grandfather and his uncles fought in WW1 to keep this country free and then my father fought in WW2 to preserve and protect this country. Where were they honoured? And that dancing, prancing, mincing lisping fop lecturing white Canadians about “diversity” while his bloody father rode through Montreal wearing a Nazi uniform in WW2. the day sucked big time. Embarassed to be Canadian.

Don’t you remember UN comrade Trudeau declaring the end of the nation state after he was elected. If you do, what exactly do you think it meant.

Um, the logo doesn’t change or alter anything, it’s just a logo for 150, our National Flag still flying high and proud. Secondly, the logo was chosen by a competition held under Harper’s gov. No issue here.
