Paul Millions emailed to say a Canadian flag at a Durham Region facility on Bayly St., west of Westney Rd., in Ajax, is flying on the same pole as the white-and-blue Durham ensign.

“I thought the region would know the proper way to fly a Canadian flag,” said Millions, adding he’s seen the same thing at other Durham Region facilities.

We went there and found the Durham flag flying beneath the Maple Leaf at the Bayly St. sanitary sewer pumping station, with the lettering on it facing backwards to the street, a second mistake.

US Residents tell Canadians stop displaying you flags

I was amazed and dismayed by the Feb. 1 front page story about the incident with the Canadian flag at the Japanese Garden Mobile Estates. Contrary to the claims attributed to the principals in the story, their actions do not represent a display of patriotism but simply lack of civilized behavior of hosts toward their friendly visitors. If these same people were living abroad, would they not be proud to display their American origin by showing a U.S. flag on their homes? After all, this is an accepted practice throughout the world. In a number of countries which I have visited I have seen many American flags proudly displayed in front of American Express offices and U.S. citizens' private homes.

Canada is Number One

According to Canadian emoji use, ours is the land of guns, eggplants and smiling poop.

"Canada scores highest for interests some might consider more 'American', including guns & violent emoji (1.52% vs .97% avg), money (.47% vs .25% avg) and raunchy humour (.28% vs .14% avg)," the report reads.
