Thank you for your patriotism by including a Canada flag in today’s issue.
Unfortunately we are returning it to you as we are unable to display it in the patio home strata complex we live in.
The first time my wife hung a cloth Canada flag on our fence to honour fallen soldiers in Afghanistan, our neighbour took it down, crumpled it and threw it on our patio with a typewritten note saying, “Do not hang stuff on the fence … I have a right to enjoy my side … I do not enjoy your infringement of my rights.”
Apparently, she finds the sight of the Canadian flag unsightly and offensive.
When my wife attempted to hang the flag a second time, this neighbour phoned the RCMP.
Oh, did I mention this neighbour is a member of the military at CFB Comox?
Happy Canada Day!
