by the concept of reclaiming
the Red Ensign as a symbol of Canada before it was transformed into the Liberal-ruled socialist mess it is today, I've decided to join in, and added it to my sidebar.
Above all, it's a flag I could stand behind and be proud of. The Canada of the Red Ensign hadn't yet withdrawn from the great traditions and achievements of western civilization to wallow in whiny and toothless self-righteousness. Canada before Mike Pearson was a place I think I could have been content with.
But, even in a better Canada than today's, I know where my sympathies would have ultimately lain...which is the reason for the other simultaneous addition, and the order of the two.
