Unreal. What is happening to our country

autum_klassen

Why can’t people hang a flag dedicated to their country. My brother served in the army and is fighting in Iraq

duke_of_teramo

I'd put it in the biggest window.

linaferreeee

@lynnmarklew strata has ridiculous rules then.

the.chop

I'd paint the flag on the hood of the car.

@staceytaves Jihad Justin took our patriotism and gave it to the Omars. We are fucked

bonbon_sanderson

@clay_1974 I was thinking the same thing

Disrespectful. I sure hope they don't get away with this.

p_mackyd

The ones complaining, are they offended by the flag? We are proud Canadians and by flying the flag, we show our love and support.

colleenlerue

Maybe they should just display the flag in the inside window, that should be approved😢

margaret_gayle1

Yes..agree ... being Canadian is the best....

clay_1974

ian_r._mcculloch

Condo rules, change them.

ruth_kovac1

Fly the flag

lvarone76

It’s a Canadian flag and he lives in Ottawa!!! WHAT is the problem ????

ssangovski

This should not happen ever in CANADA

thehighadvisor01

Tell the property manager to go to hell. The argument if someone else wants to put up a flag from their home country they can does not work. this is Canada. Telling somebody to take down the Canadian flag is just plain stupid.

smarelkov

Leave it up

smarelkov

Not disturbing anyone

chaplainderrick

Small minded people

alexguibord

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

tjmac12

Thank you for your service.... you’ve earned the right to display our flag wherever you please. I hope you don’t take it down

wrtcsl

Rules are made by human and interpreted by idiots.

kfabs9

That’s terrible. Just wrong

roxie_babie79

Fricken sad can’t even be proud to be a Canadian anymore these days 💔

margaretrn

Disappointing .... proud to be Canadian 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

corinnebucketlist

WRONG !!LEAVE IT UP , if we can have Hockey sticks on porches all across #Canada surely the #canadianflag can go viral . Everyone put your flag up !!

willsoncutts

What has become of this country. First of all, thank you for your service. Secondly, tell this condo corporation to shove the rule where the sun don’t shine. Please do not take down this flag. I will sent you a couple more for your vehicles if you like. And last but not least, if your fellow condo members had any pride in this country, they would all have a Canadian flag flying. If the don’t they should go back where came from! Proud Canadian that fly’s the flag!

j.c.mcclellan

I would leave it right there. This is bullshit

jomatoga

@lvarone76 the problem is probably some control freak neighbour who is fanatical about the condo rules and probably sits on the board. They should all attend a condo board meeting and make a suggestion for the complex to put up a flag pole and large Canadian Flag for the complex.

gerrilink

me too!
