Yeah, vote out that Caledon individual.
Look if they're $0.80 to $1.20 apiece on Alibaba, what the ????
I'd never take no from any MP, they tell me "no" I tell them "Ok you want to play, you be getting voted OUT!"
Then I'd ask if I'm being detained, or what. Standard stuff. Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

I'm pretty sure the great majority of MPs in Quebec still have most of their 40 flags.

But I have no idea what I would do with one of these.

And I don't want them to increase the allowed budget for stuff like this.

Thanks OP. Emailed my local constituency office and received an "it's in the mail" confirmation a few hours later. I will be proudly flying this flag. #loveCanada

The Canadian flag is exactly twice as wide as tall; the white area is a perfect square; the red areas are exactly 1/4 of the flag's width; the leaf is the exact official size and shape; the red is the exact shade. And if you pay attention to such things, you'll notice that a lot of flag patches, stickers, etc. are wrong, which boggles the mind - the design and specs are easily found online, yet people just draw up their own distorted version and manufacture it.

It is popular in countries with a single Identity and patriotic citizens.

My MP was very excited about this and highly encouraged Public Displays of Happiness

Thanks for the tip OP, I'll hang it up high and proud.

Well that escalated quickly.
Better grab these flags before Trudeau bans the plastic it comes in, and the material. Or not... They might change the packaging to a plastic ah box ah paper sort of thingy

Please mail me a Canadian Flag.

Thanks,

I guess being polite and friendly is a lost art. (Putting "please" in front of a demanding statement doesn't make it polite)

The government should be giving these out for free to all Canadian citizens... I mean after all, we do pay taxes.
