The Federal Government is for all Canadians. We all pay taxes; we all should benefit equally. I smell porkers who've failed civics!
If that's true, it's the same as their actual logo

WOOP see NOT true Cannuck, you can leave this thread now CBC News - British Columbia - Olympic outfits spark controversy
Personally, in an age where image is so important, I find such a thing just a bit troubling
I am by no means rabid about this, but I think the sitting federal and provincial governments should be banned from this type of branding. It is especially odd in the case of our minority conservative Fed, a "generic" Government seal would be more appropriate
As an aside- I (living in Ontario) was no fan of Mike Harris and it irked me to no end being stuck in holiday traffic on the way up north and seeing SO many of them "brought to you by the Mike Harris government" signs all over every construction project, it just struck me as cheap partisan branding and a stupid waste of money
Anyways this topic is no big issue but at least it isn't about the US or the Middle East. Dunno why it's not right to have a problem with things MY government does
For those who haven't caught it, the logo isn't on government cheques.
It is on some of those ceremonial things they use for photo ops, and it shouldn't be there. Even the MP's name shouldn't be there.
but I still think it borders hard on using gov't assets to blatantly promote the Party.
