In a few days, we’ll be celebrating Canada Day, but this year our national holiday is extra special since it marks 150 years since confederation.
Canadians don’t typically show fervent patriotism but wouldn’t this momentous celebration be the perfect time for our government to show its citizens the best our great nation has to offer?
I thought so, which is why it came as a bit of a shock when the Federal government announced the headline music act performing on Parliament Hill on July 1st would be Irish rockers, U2.
Who cares if the three biggest acts in pop and hip-hop music are all Canadians— Drake, Justin Bieber, and the Weekend— or that the biggest adult contemporary act is international music sensation Michael Buble, also Canadian.
No, for this Liberal government and Justin Trudeau it's much more important to have a globalist message for Canadians on Canada Day rather than showing any patriotic pride with our own top music acts.
Watch as I show you what Trudeau's Prime Minister’s Office told Toronto Sun Columnist Joe Warmington last week about why U2 was playing.
I suppose this is all because Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government believe Canada is the first post-national state and that we don’t have a Canadian Identity, so why bother celebrating it on our 150th birthday, right?
