I remember when the US Marines raised the Canadian Flag UPSIDE-DOWN during the World Series (of Baseball).
I can remember how OUTRAGED Canadians were by this disgusting 'prank'.
I remember my bullshit detector going off when the Marines claimed it was merely a mistake.
This is the flag flying from the flagpole above Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic School, it's been like this for at least two days.
When military types fly a flag upside-down, it is a sign of distress, an indication that all is NOT well.
There are rules to how you display the symbol of our country, and the Catholic School Board are NOT obeying them.
Every Canadian should be INSULTED by this unpatriotic disreguard for our flag.
The Catholic School Board SHOULD be setting an example.
They SHOULD be teaching children civility and ethics, but this?
This teaches kids that it's OK to be rude and disrespectful...
UPDATE: As of yesterday, Friday April 19th, the Catholic School Board has still not addressed this insult to Canada.
That's at least four days that YCDSB has thumbed their noses at the country and province that funds them.
UPDATED UPDATE: It took the Catholic School Board at least four days to do the right thing, and fix the flag that was not being flown correctly.
Not that those four days are not a disgraceful amount of time to leave our flag looking that way, but, comparatively speaking, this is lightning speed for YCDSB.
If only they would address the lies spewed by their staff as quickly.
