Conservatives continue to win the culture war, one battle at a time.
Good news for conservatives and people that want to celebrate Canada Day: the City of Toronto has reversed its decision and is now bringing back the fireworks display to City Hall (Nathan Phillips Square) on July 1, 2023.
This comes after influential right-wingers such as Jordan Peterson and Chris Sky raised their voice in support of Canada Day.
The Canadian Democracy Coalition started a petition Tuesday to demand the city bring back events, declaring the campaign a success on Wednesday.
Even former police chief and mayoral candidate Mark Saunders promised to bring back the day if elected mayor.
On Tuesday, city volunteers received an e-mail informing them that Canada Day celebrations would be cancelled, and the planned events at Nathan Phillips Square would not go ahead as planned.
On Wednesday, the city abruptly changed course, issuing a statement:
“Officials agreed to revisit their decision and proceed with Canada Day celebrations in the Square along with Canada Day celebrations in Mel Lastman Square and countless other Canada Day events.”
However, the City of Calgary has not reversed course. Residents of the western Canadian city face possible fines of $100,000 and even jail time if they host private fireworks parties in celebration of Canada Day.
