Car­toon didn’t do jus­tice to Canada 150

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Cel­e­brat­ing Canada then and now, (editorial car­toon June 27)

Dur­ing this year of cel­e­brat­ing Canada, it was very dis­ap­point­ing to see such a neg­a­tive and in­cor­rect editorial car­toon about how Cana­di­ans feel dur­ing this, our 150th birth­day cel­e­bra­tory year.

I am not say­ing that there are some Cana­di­ans who have neg­a­tive or frus­trated feel­ings with var­i­ous sit­u­a­tions in our coun­try, but those feel­ing were also present in 1967.

But if you are sup­posed to rep­re­sent the ma­jor­ity of Cana­di­ans, then you are so far off the mark. Cana­di­ans are thrilled to be cel­e­brat­ing our coun­try from sea to sea whether on the Via Rail 150 pass or the Parks Canada 150 pass.

Small com­mu­ni­ties are hav­ing street par­ties and large com­mu­ni­ties are hav­ing fes­ti­vals. Big or small, loud or quiet, we are all proud to be Canadian. So fly that flag right side up and with dig­nity. True North Strong and Free! Sheila Drury, Mount Hope
