The woke left continues its attacks on Canadian culture, this time targeting Canada Day.
Do you plan on celebrating Canada Day this year in Calgary? The city’s woke mayor Jyoti Gondek and a cast of hard-left councillors have other plans.
If you’re planning a party in celebration of your country, be prepared for the police or city officials to shut you down.
The City of Calgary has announced that it is offering its people a watered-down celebration this year, one that doesn’t involve fireworks.
Residents that choose to light their own fireworks must receive a permit, and failure to do so can result in a $100,000 fine plus a potential 6 months in prison.
If a person has previously been caught, the penalties are more severe: up to $500,000 in fines and up to 1 year in prison.
On top of that, the city will be working to “mitigate” late-night traffic and will be using tax-payer resources to reduce “noise.”
The city will be focused on “diverse, educational, and inclusive programming,” for this year’s July 1 event, according to local media.
What the City of Calgary means by “diverse” programing is not immediately clear, but it signals that the city is focused on providing residents with a woke experience instead of the usual Canada Day festivities.
