They boarded their trucks and cars in BC, did up their seat belts, drove on the right side of the highway, adhered to reasonable speed limits and obeyed a myriad of laws and regulations on their way to Ottawa.

When they got to Ottawa, they carried Confederate flags. They draped their propaganda messages on the statue of a real Canadian hero – Terry Fox. They danced and displayed signs on a monument to thousands who made real sacrifices for the freedoms in this country – Canada’s War Memorial. They desecrated a real symbol of tyranny – the yellow star the Nazis used to identify Jews during the horrific Holocaust. Along the way they were endorsed by such political luminaries as Donald Trump, senior and junior, Don Cherry and Maxime Bernier.

Who are these people? They certainly are not the Canadians I have been proud to share this beautiful country with for more than seven decades.
