Flag Folly

This whole mess over the Gov't of Ontario ordering flags from China is a bit ridiculous. People are criticizing the government for ordering cheaper flags that save taxpayer money from a different country. Boo hoo. I bet these same people also complain when their taxes go up, and when the government goes into deficits. Keep it consistent people! As a taxpayer, I have no issues with the government seeking ways to save money. Furthermore, it's bit silly for Canadians whose economy is so dependent on international trade to call foul when one of their governments does an international transaction. The bottom line is that if the local companies were competitive enough, they would get the contracts. If they want these contracts, make themselves more attractive. Not only will they likely get a contract from the local government, but they might also get some of the business these similar Chinese companies are getting. What's next, a buy Canadian clause?

There are a lot more important things to be focused on than this silly flag issue. What is wrong with politicians these days? Or has it always been like this & I never saw it?

Where's the patroticism? I think its utter ridiculous, regardless of what the economy is dependent on, to order a flag from a foreign country... You might as well outsource the whole country!
