Don’t disrespect our flags
The freedom to fly our provincial and national flags was hard won, wasn’t it folks?
So tell me why people would allow their flags to become nothing more then rags on a flagpole? Only one week from Memorial Day, I had to retrieve two such flags from a local business establishment.
I took the Canadian flag in particular to management because it was the one in the most deplorable, torn condition, only half of a flag really. I said that this is an insult to the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom to fly these flags.
Mind you, I’ve seen equally ragged flags flying on flagpoles on private homes as well. It’s disgusting and a slap in the face to those of us who are proud to call ourselves Newfoundlanders and Canadians.
Where is your sense of pride and your gratitude? Come on folks, take stock, keep the flags flying, but in good condition, please!
In perhaps what will be the biggest upset of the Welsey Gosse Memorial Tournament, the Carbonear Sentinels got the best of the O’Donel Patriots of Mount Pearl 5-2 at the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts on Nov. 19. Goaltender Connor Parsons (shown here) was stellar between the pipes for the Sentinels, making big stop after big stop. This is just one of his spectacular saves from the evening.
