Some Coincidence

October 20th, 2009

Gary Lunn, the minister of state for sport, said any resemblance was purely coincidental.


“I can assure you that no one in the Government of Canada was involved in any way, shape or form in the design of any of the Olympic clothing. In fact the first time I saw it was (Wednesday),” Lunn said in the House of Commons. “The clothing was designed by the Hudson’s Bay Company in consultations with the Canadian Olympic Committee and with an athletes’ panel

But I’m the naive one.

    Oh for God’s sake….yes you are naive Brian.

    Instead of just believing the left, why don’t you do a bit of research into how this was chosen. I think you might learn something.

    “We can’t even peacefully unveil the Olympic ‘‘uniform’ that the Canadians will wear without political upheaval from our government’s opposition and their accusations that the logo was a devious scheme of the conservatives as part of “cheap partisan politics.”

    Well I’m not much into politics but if the conservatives need me, I’ll vouch for them. I was part of the athlete panel who voted on the final logo and I assure you, I wasn’t in cahoots with Steven Harper. “

    Naive not! Ridiculous, YES!!

    Now, if this country was called Banada, or worst yet, Brianada, well, then we’d have ourselves a real live controversy. But, sorry to say it, you don’t have a grassy knoll to stand on.

    But don’t despair, you’ll still have the Truther and the Birther bone to gnaw on.

    This story is already 3 weeks old and was debunked almost the second Hedy opened her mouth, but yet here it is today on your blog.

    Naive is being kind.

    Naive is being extremely kind.

    This is a post that requires the following question be asked .

    It’s a ‘C’ for Canada and a maple leaf because it’s on our flag. The Air Canada logo is similar. So are you accusing the Hudson’s Bay Company or the athletes themselves (or both)? How exactly do you suppose that the government could have influenced the outcome without the cooperation of both those parties?

    After PM Stephen Harper was at the Montreal Canadians and Ottawa Senators hockey game last weekend, I fully expected the CBC National with Peter Mansbridge to report that the C on the Canadians sweaters was for Conservatives and the H was for Harper.Media Logo-gate.

    How long has it been? Two weeks and CBC and CTV is STILL talking about it? Time for a new pole to see if the latest smear is working.

    Remembrance Day will be soon enough, to commemorate true Canadian valour and noble sacrifice. The irrelevant and useless debate on the origin and use of the big ‘C’ and the Maple Leaf should be relegated to the files of another day we should recognize for such garbage: Forgotten Day.

    The olympic logo is much closer to that of the C and leaf of Captain Canuck, but this is old news http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj77/canuck1971/cap_head001.jpg
